Just wanted to let everyone know our Petition Drive Kick-Off for a Newark Ballot Initiative 2014 will be held at the Glass, Pottery, Plastics, &Allied Workers Local 244, 350 Hudson Avenue, Newark, November 17, 2013, Sunday, from 1-7 p.m. Please join us and learn how you can help get the Money Out Of Politics! Anyone in Ohio can help. We'll send reminders closer to time but just wanted everyone to mark their calendars.
Those who are registered voters within the city limits of Newark can sign at this event. We will also be doing some training on circulating petitions and some circulating itself. The actual petition is attached as well as the flyer for this event. As you will see the citizens of Newark will be voting in support of a U.S. Constitutional Amendment which states Corporations are not People and Money is not Speech. If the ordinance passes, a Democracy Day will be held annually in March in which the citizens can speak about how these issues are affecting them personally as well as in their community. Citizens will also be able to provide written testimony. This will cease when the Amendment is obtained. We initially wanted to do this for all of Licking County but found that only 2 counties in Ohio have vehicles to do initiative. Therefore since Newark is the county seat we are starting there.
Hope to see you there! Questions? Email back or call one of the numbers on the flyer.
