Petition to Tom McNamara, Maurice West, Sr., Sam Schmitz, Jessica Jones
Rockford Supports Dan OShea
It is an unfortunate time that we are in, that we must come together to protect those that have come together to protect us. Recently Dan O'Shea has been brought to public attention for a 3 second sound bite from a month or so ago. We are all residents of Rockford and understand the grave situation we face regarding violent crime. And it is unfortunate that we will not save everyone. It is unfortunate that we have to focus on saving younger teenagers from violence on the streets of Rockford, but we all watch the news and understand these to be facts. When someone commits a violent crime, we simply as a society cannot tolerate it regardless of age. In no way has Dan O'Shea ever been tasked with acting as a father figure for these young children. And unfortunately by the time a child makes it to the police chief's organization it is already arguable too late, regardless of how young they are. I think everyone can agree the violent crime rate in Rockford Illinois is extremely and dangerously high. I think we can all agree that unfortunately anyone, regardless of age should in fact go off to prison, and that is all we have for them. In my neighborhood a family was just sitting in their living room when it was shot up from the outside by unknown shooters exchanging gun fire. I think if you were in this family, you would agree, prison is where people that shoot at other people belong at. PURPOSE: The purpose of this petition is to show support for Rockford Police Chief Dan O'Shea. That you want to keep him as police chief and you vote. "Local Democratic Caucus members and City of Rockford Aldermen have expressed that Chief O’Shea must be held accountable for his words." This means that local Democrat alderman have expressed a desire to see Dan O'Shea fired. By signing this petition, if the police chief is replaced that your dissatisfaction will be expressed through your vote in the upcoming elections.

Petition to Utah State Board of Education
Utah, don’t remove supports for teachers & students!
Enough with the red tape that hinders our children and their rightful opportunities to be in inclusive settings. The Utah State Board of Education (USBE) is voting this week on new rules that have a direct and negative impact on the special needs student population in Utah. USBE R277-324 includes language that takes paraeducators out of the classroom, or where they remain, severely limits the interaction they can have with a student who is differently abled and needs access to a modified curriculum. For many students in Utah with special needs, the only way they can access a general education setting, or in other words a fully “inclusive” education, where they attend school with siblings, neighbors, and other community members, is with the help and support of a paraeducator. Paraeducators are essential in helping a child with special needs to access a modified general education curriculum. In the absence of paraeducators in public schools, those children will be sent to different schools and warehoused in segregated classrooms. IDEA is a federal law that states:1. Every child no matter their ability has the right to a public education. 2. Access to this education cannot be denied based on funding.3. All students regardless of academic abilities cannot be excluded from a classroom of same-age peers. The USBE claims they are in favor of inclusive settings for children with special needs. But this rule further pushes these children into segregated classrooms. The USBE has been disregarding IDEA law for decades by segregating differently-abled students and denying them access to their neighborhood schools. The USBE does this by creating policies and rules that are in direct conflict with IDEA, but which “govern” local Utah school districts. Simply put - we do not need more rules which marginalize and limit Utah’s children. We need to come out of the dark ages and stop segregating differently-abled populations. We need the Utah State Board of Education to start putting children first. Please sign this petition to stop these new “rules” from being passed. We do not need segregation. We need opportunities and inclusion for all children who learn differently from a young age so that they grow up to be a part of Utah’s future communities. This rule, if passed, has the capacity to: 1 -Prevent full inclusion in the classroom for students with disabilities2- Handicap a paraprofessional from performing helpful and necessary small group instruction3 – Prevent them from effectively assisting the teacher in providing individualized help to students.

Petition to Tullahoma School Board
Tullahoma Supports Its Teachers
“You’ve got to stand for something or you’ll fall for anything.” Please share! On June 17, two of Tullahoma City School System’s teachers’ jobs will be presented to the school board to determine whether or not they will have the opportunity to continue their career in Tullahoma. Because of one lapse in judgement, their entire career may be nullified. A punishment that does not fit their crime. No one is denying their judgement was right, but majority would agree that they would deserve a chance to right their wrong. Majority may even have done the same if they were placed in their shoes under the same circumstances. A chance to benefit a special needs child. Tullahoma City Schools are blessed to have such amazing educators in our area who would do JUST. ABOUT. ANYTHING. to have their students and/or children of their own, succeed to the highest of expectations! It is clear that a review of policy is needed, however, terminating great teachers is not the answer. Please sign to make it clear to the Tullahoma School Board we as Tullahoma citizens do not believe in firing great teachers!

Petition to John Hickenlooper
Demand that Colorado Parks and Wildlife actually supports wildlife
As citizens of Colorado who love this state for its natural beauty, climate, wildlife, and much more, we urge you, Governor Hickenlooper, to investigate Colorado Parks and Wildlife for their recent reprehensible actions against wildlife. We encourage you to demand that they approach wildlife with a more humane outlook and come up with better alternatives than just killing them. Here are a few examples, just from the Front Range, of why we're upset: CPW killed a mother bear and her 2 babies in Apex Park in Golden in September 2017. The mother bear was trying to protect her cubs from the dogs that were brought by the hikers into the wilderness. The hikers reported that the bear was 'aggressive', but no one was injured and the hikers and dogs walked away without incident, which suggests that the bear was not truly being aggressive. Even if the mother was being aggressive, there was absolutely no reason to kill those 2 cubs. CPW states they are investigating the incident, but Jennifer Churchill has stated that nothing has come of it. As historically seems to happen in this organization, where they protect each other, we are doubtful that there will be any positive outcome or true change from the "investigation" and the officer will still keep his job despite his horrendous actions. CPW then killed a bear in September less than 2 weeks later in North Boulder because it was 'attacking a goat'. Rather than offer viable options, such as telling the owners of the goats to secure their animals in a proper shelter with electric fencing such that the bear couldn't get to the goats, they killed the bear. Jennifer Churchill stated that the bear would just want to go after more livestock after this, which has not been shown to be true. Bears are opportunists, so they will go after livestock if readily available, but if access to that livestock is blocked, they will move on. They will not then only go seek out livestock. The current directive by CPW that requires the killing of wildlife after a single depredatory event on livestock is clearly an economic one. It puts a dollar sign on the heads of animals. CPW killed another bear in Colorado Springs in August while attempting to sedate it as it climbed higher and higher in a tree. CPW made no attempt to protect the bear from falling and the bear, therefore, fell to its death. This was a decision that shows clear incompetence by that CPW officer. CPW consistently discourages or refuses to relocate prairie dog colonies. They did everything they could to encourage extermination of the recent colonies on the landfill in Longmont and the Great Western Flex colony. They have made the permitting process for relocating prairie dogs in the state close to impossible and very hard for advocates to get approved. The application to kill prairie dogs by donating them to the ferrets takes a mere few minutes to fill out, while a relocation permit takes up to 3 days. After submitting a permit for relocation, CPW can take up to a month to approve or deny them, and so much red tape has been created for these permits, that most are denied and the prairie dogs are killed. With the recent colonies, they gave the incorrect information to the people who needed to apply for permits for relocation simply because they did not want to deal with the work of the permitting process necessary to relocate. CPW also kills thousands of prairie dogs each year on our state parks, where visitors actually enjoy seeing this wildlife. CPW is hoping to kill a large number of mountain lions and bears to increase mule deer populations, whose numbers are still in the hundreds of thousands, as part of a 'study'. Many studies have already shown that killing predators is not successful at increasing number of prey. There has been a large public outcry against this, but again, there has been no response from CPW. There is suspicion that CPW wants to increase mule deer populations simply so they can sell more hunting licenses. CPW killed many animals that were being properly cared for at Squirrel Creek Animal Rescue in Lakewood in 2016. These rehabilitators were doing amazing work and saving a lot of lives, but CPW got upset that some paperwork wasn't filled out to their liking, so they went in, shut the place down, and killed most of the animals that were being successfully rehabilitated. There have been reports of CPW doing this to other rehabbers as well, rehabbers who have good hearts and are actually saving wildlife. CPW rarely responds to any phone calls, email messages, or social media messages for any public concern. Frankly, they seem to be on a trigger-happy, 'nobody can touch us' type of tirade with their haphazard decisions that result in so many unnecessary deaths. As you will see in reading the comments below, citizens have seen the downhill change in this organization over the years. Jennifer Churchill gives the same reasoning for every bear that is killed--that they're getting too accustomed to humans and that they're potentially dangerous. Humans have decimated most of our bears' habitat, so yes, bears do have to live around and become accustomed to seeing people, like it or not. We, however, have to learn to peacefully coexist with bears, and accept that, yes, we will see them in towns and they can look scary, they might dump over some garbage cans, they might go after a pet if they're incredibly hungry, but it is up to the humans to protect their valuables as much as they can, to respect the bears' property as much as we expect them to respect ours, and if humans make a mistake, to not punish the bears. The current officers and commissioners at CPW don't seem to have any true care or concern for our state's wildlife. They were founded by a group of hunters/ranchers who have a conflict of interest because they only value livestock and hunting. They, therefore, want to take the easy road out whenever an incident arises--that is to kill the animal. We would like to see new faces on the board of CPW, faces that represent the current mindset of Colorado--those who love nature and its wildlife. We want to see CPW managed by people who can show humanity and understanding toward these creatures who are just trying to eat and survive, people who can think outside of the box to come up with alternatives to killing. We would like to see a change in the directive that requires wildlife be automatically killed after a single depredatory event. We would like to see more mandates that small farms have electric fencing around their property, or other such protective measures, such that depredatory events are less likely. We would like to see less destruction of their habitat. We want to know that our state is at the forefront of handling wildlife with compassion. We want to become proud of CPW such that they no longer have the reputation of "Colorado Parks and Death". We value our wildlife and we want to see them thrive. Thank you, Governor, for taking these lost lives seriously.
