300+ signatures Saturday morning! Super supporter Steve Bishop shows us how it’s done
The fairs have been fantastic. On Friday, I went from 1pm-8pm at the Pierce County Republicans booth at the Puyallup Fair. I teamed up with Gordon Glaxton and others and we were smokin’.
One of the people who came by to sign a petition was Charlotte Trayer. She was kind enough to email me our picture together.
But like I’ve said before, big events like these fairs are great, but getting to 300,000 signatures by the end of December is gonna take a day-by-day grind by all of us.
So I went absolutely bonkers when I got this email from super supporter Steve Bishop on Saturday:
Hey Tim, over 300 signatures collected this morning. Keep rockin!!!!!
I called him and asked how he did it. He said he got ’em while at work and customers were lining up to sign. “It was easy because people are pissed,” he said. Pissed about skyrocketing car tab taxes, pissed about Sound Transit’s lies, pissed that politicians haven’t done anything about it.
Steve got over 6000 signatures for our $30 Tabs Initiative in 1999. He’s a 695 kamikaze. He wants to do even more for this year’s I-947.
Steve Bishop, Bob, Debbie, Leonard, Connie, and so many others are out there bustin’ their butts getting signatures. But it’s gonna take more — many more — folks helping.
We need all hands on deck.
Tons of voters want to sign a petition, but we need more people asking voters to sign.
DO WHAT THESE SUPPORTERS HAVE DONE: Get a bunch of petitions. Just hit “reply” to this email and let me know how many petitions you want, your address, and your phone number. I will find an Office Depot, Staples, Minuteman Press, or Kinko’s near you, order the petitions for you, and all you need to do is pick them up. You can get 3 petitions for less than a $1. You can get 10 petitions for less than $3. You can get 100 petitions for $30. They’re dirt cheap with super fast turnaround. You can pick up your petitions in an hour. It is a petition distribution revolution that more and more supporters across the state are taking advantage of.
