Petition to U. S. Department of Transportation
Eliminate Daylight-Savings Time
Daylight-savings time is an unnecessary burden that impacts millions of lives twice a year. Many people complain but nothing changes. Let's end this once and for all. Join me in petitioning the U.S. Department of Transportation – which is the federal agency responsible for oversight of daylight-savings time – to end the madness. Several states have already opted-out or are considering opting-out, so why not end it all together? Get rid of Daylight-Savings Time!

Petition for Senator Maureen Walsh to shadow a Nurse for a 12 hour shift
Senator Maureen Walsh stated that we as nurses mostly spend our 12 hour shifts playing cards. I would like to take a stand and petition to have the Senator experience what really happens during an RN’s 12 hour shift. She most likely won't be playing uno.....
Petition to President Lowell Haines, Taylor University
Support VP Mike Pence as Taylor University Commencement Speaker
Problem:It has just been announced that VP Mike Pence has accepted the invitation to speak at Taylor University's graduation ceremony. Many members of the Taylor community feel that Pence speaking at graduation is not a circumstance of benefit, and thus, believe his invitation should be rescinded. Solution:As students and active community members of Taylor University, we believe that the the University's decision to host VP Mike Pence as commencement speaker should be supported. By Pence speaking at this upcoming graduation, Taylor is by no means aligning themselves with the alleged controversial views of the Trump administration, they are simply giving a voice to all opinions and planes of thought. We also believe that someone of power, such as VP Mike Pence, should be respected and welcomed for committing their incredibly valuable time to Taylor University, regardless of political affiliation. Mike Pence is also known for his personal beliefs in Christianity. If disagreements arise concerning the personal views of Pence, that does not justify calls to restrict Pence's speaking as a whole. "I am a Christian, a conservative, and a Republican, in that order." -VP Mike Pence Romans 2:1-4 "Therefore you have no excuse, O man, every one of you who judges. For in passing judgment on another you condemn yourself, because you, the judge, practice the very same things. We know that the judgment of God rightly falls on those who practice such things. Do you suppose, O man—you who judge those who practice such things and yet do them yourself—that you will escape the judgment of God? Or do you presume on the riches of his kindness and forbearance and patience, not knowing that God's kindness is meant to lead you to repentance?" Romans 13:1-2 "Let every person be subject to the governing authorities. For there is no authority except from God, and those that exist have been instituted by God. Therefore whoever resists the authorities resists what God has appointed, and those who resist will incur judgment.
Petition to Supervisor Dennis Rodoni
Save The Last Resort -- A Working Model of Sustainability in Marin County
Dear Supervisor Rodoni, We immensely appreciate your recent efforts to, at long last, reach a compromise that preserves The Last Resort (http://thelastresortlagunitas.org) David Lee Hoffman's property, as a historic landmark. As the process of working with David progresses, we must express the imperative to reinstate Marin County's own Architectural Commission's ruling that David's site is historically important. This would allow the use of the California Historic Building Code as a guideline and protections this code offers. Reinstating the Commission's ruling is ethical and allows for long-awaited progress in complying with reasonable code upgrades and an ultimate resolution. We do not want to lose The Last Resort, nor do we want to lose David as a friend, neighbor, and contributor to our community. We feel that David is a visionary who, during the past 40 years, has created solutions to climate change issues that we face as a global community. These solutions lie in the very structures and systems that stand to be destroyed if the Commission's unanimous ruling continues to be discounted or ignored. We believe the demolition of his work would severely endanger the health, safety, beauty and tranquility of Marin County - and the potential for large-scale solutions that David's innovation provides. We request that Marin County, through their receiver, reinstate their own Commission's unanimous ruling, which declared that David's property deserves local historic status. You, too, recently stated in your January 31, 2017 letter to the appointed receiver, “Furthermore, please consider this an official request from my office to include architectural and cultural value determinations on the Hoffman property in your final recommendations.” The reinstatement of the County Architectural Commission ruling would be the final step in bringing closure to the issue of preserving as much of David’s site as possible without interfering with the work of the receiver. We believe that if David loses, we all lose -- and we believe the solution is outlined by the steps in this petition. We are truly thankful to have you addressing these issues. By signing this petition we support the reinstatement of the Marin County Architectural Commission resolution that all 36 structures on the 2-acre property of David Lee Hoffman in Lagunitas constitute a cultural and historic landmark of local importance. Signed,

Petition to Andrew M. Cuomo, New York State Senate, New York State House
PROTECT THE UNBORN;
REPEAL NYS Abortion Law (RHA) passed on 1/22.
Fellow New Yorkers, on January 22, 2019, the NYS Senate passed a barbaric law, under the deceptive guise of "privacy" and "women's rights", called the Reproductive Health Act. This bill, which was subsequently and hurriedly, signed into law by NYS Governor Andrew Cuomo, strikes down the former law, that legally allowed abortions to be performed up until birth, but ONLY when the pregnancy/birth posed a physical threat to the mother's life. Going even further than Roe v. Wade , the RHA legalizes abortion UP UNTIL BIRTH, with DANGEROUSLY vague circumstances that include "endangers the mother's life or health"; leaving patients and their doctor's wide-open leeway for interpretation. The language is generic and subjective, as to not offend nor to restrict. The law also stipulates that doctors will not face criminal charges in performing any such abortion, by moving abortion law from the NYS penal code (criminal offenses) law to the NYS health code law (non-criminal offenses). The law also further strips the rights of the unborn by making the killing of a baby in utero, by an assailant, during the course of an assault or murder of the mother, not a chargeable homicide. If you are a New Yorker, man OR woman, outraged and saddened by this law, that will undoubtedly lead to countless more of the unborn being aborted, throughout NYS, (already termed the "abortion Capitol of the United States"), and want to send a clear message that this is NOT your New York, sign today! We, not just as New Yorkers, but as human beings, have a responsibility and moral obligation to protect the rights of the voiceless, the unborn! Please sign, to urge the repeal or amendment of the Reproductive Health Act! (Full text of bill can be found at www.nysenate.gov

Passing of "Buffy's Law"
Veterinarians make many life and death decisions for our pets. Numerous animals have died or been maltreated as a result of substance abuse by impaired veterinarians. Yet veterinarians have access to drugs and are not compelled to have themselves or their employees drug tested. This is a DANGEROUS problem. If the state required and enforced mandatory regular and random drug testing....many of the victims of bad vets would still be alive. Drug testing has become a standard part of employment for people who work with cash, utilities, retailers, supermarket chains, casino's, warehouses, government contractors to name a few. Subsequently those repeat offenders who continue to use drugs, alcohol or any mind altering substances should have their licenses revoked. There are many good and caring veterinarians out there, however those who have criminal records and/or substance abuse problems are the ones this petition is applying to. Please sign this petition today. Don't wait until another pet suffers and/or dies as a result of impaired veterinarian.
