600 Washington Ave. Newport
Now that the legal wrangling has wrapped up for the week, thanks to Judge Bob Winkler, the people of Cincinnati have been placed in control of their own destiny. The outcome of the of the well-publicized lawsuit (so far) is that the right of referendum in the people of Cincinnati is preserved.
But that means the people must now seize that opportunity -- and collect 7,500 good signatures in 25 days or less to secure a position on the November ballot.
Leading the petition drive will be Council member Christopher Smitherman, the Cincinnati NAACP and Price Hill activist Peter Witte. (Witte was one of the Plaintiffs in the lawsuit before Judge Bob Winkler that has allowed this petition drive to proceed.)
If your business wants to help distribute petitions or be a signature collection point, let us know (Treasurer@goCOAST.Org ) and we will get you a supply of materials and announce the same here on the COAST blog.
Time is of the essence. We need these signatures in hand quickly. Thank you for your help.
NOTE!!! - YOU CANNOT WITNESS YOUR OWN SIGNATURE. YOU CANNOT SIGN THE PETITION YOU ARE CIRCULATING. IT WILL MAKE ALL THOSE SIGNATURES INVALID. ALSO THOSE CIRCULATING PETITIONS MUST SIGN OFF ON THE BACK.
