8 days to raise $77,000 — it’s crunch time for signature drive
On day one, I took out a 2nd mortgage on my home and loaned the campaign $150,000. Why? So we could immediately contract with a professional signature gathering firm to supplement our volunteers. For months, they’ve been out there asking voters throughout the state to sign petitions for I-1366.
Our final payment of $100,000 for their services is due one week from tomorrow — on July 1st. The deadline for turning in signatures is July 2nd.
As of yesterday morning, we were still $80,000 short of our goal. But in the afternoon, a loyal friend and supporter Perry Langston from Snohomish, who had donated $5000 in March, notified me he’s willing to give $3000 more. “Where do I mail the check?”
Let me tell everyone: make checks payable to “2/3 Constitutional Amendment” and mail your checks to: 2/3 Constitutional Amendment, PO Box 18250, Spokane, WA, 99228
We need more folks like Perry to ensure this initiative’s signature drive is a success.
We’ve got 8 days to raise $77,000.
That’s only going to happen if everyone helps. If you haven’t donated yet, please do it now. If you’ve already contributed, thank you very, very much — but please contribute again.
We’ve worked too hard and invested too much to fall short now.
It’s crunch time.
A 2/3-For-Taxes Constitutional Amendment means permanent protection from Olympia’s insatiable tax appetite. It’s really exciting. Initiative 1366 is the most needed policy proposal we’ve ever done.
Please help us make it happen.
