Subject: Final two weeks on Balto Co Charter Amendment petition - ALL HANDS ON DECK!
The Charter Amendment is due to the Board of Elections on 8/13, so we have just two more weeks to push this through.
If everyone on this email would collect 40 signatures between now and the deadline, we'd be able to get this on the ballot in November. If you don't, we won't. It's as simple as that.
40 signatures is just one petition signing event and only a couple hours. The mall food court, the post office, kids baseball games, a table in front of Giant, etc. Even just emailing the website www.baltocopetitions.com to your neighbors, friends, family, and coworkers would go a long way and let them know you'll collect the forms from them. The petition form can be downloaded from the website.
This would be a major victory for Baltimore County if we would step up and make this miracle happen.
