Dear Joe,



PETITIONS AVAILABLE THIS WEEK!



Our petition draft & design team encountered a couple of unforeseen difficulties in laying the R-71 petition out, all of which they have overcome. Unfortunately, the problems did set us back a few hours and we will now go to print Wednesday afternoon, June 3.


We will begin our distribution as soon as the ink is dry.



The layout has been tricky and may contain the largest amount of text of any initiative or referendum to date.


Please be patient as we cross our t’s and dot our i’s. It is critical that we get this right the first time as the other side can be counted on to contest any mistakes or violations.


The good news is that requests for the petitions are pouring in faster than ever in response to threats by homosexual organizations who promised yesterday that they will try to intimidate R-71 petition signers by posting their names and addresses on the web.


Click here to follow R-71 Updates as they become available, or check the front page of the website.



To sign up to requests petitions, follow the link below.
