Avalanche Of Support For ROUND 2. Huge Positive Response. I’m Buried In Requests For Petitions!
Super-popular 1648 fell short because we only had 30 days. Having 6 months for Round 2 is gonna help but only if we make every day count!
Read about day one:
The journey of a thousand miles begins with single step:
I absolutely adore Marlyn Jensen – she is force of nature:
Heard it again and again: “I’m all in for Round 2.”
I-1082’s policy is the same as 1648. It expires this session’s 11 new taxes costing $27 billion and expires future new taxes after one year (unless voter approved).
It’s the timeline that’s different:
* Instead of 4 weeks to distribute petitions, collect signatures, and raise funds, I-1082 has 6 months.
* Instead of a July 5 deadline, I-1082’s deadline is Dec 31.
* Instead of being voted on this November, I-1082 will pass Nov 3, 2020.
Here’s the official ballot title: Initiative Measure No. 1082 concerns state taxes. This measure would require state tax increases to expire after one year unless approved by a majority vote of the people, and terminate tax increases imposed in 2019 and 2020 without such approval.
I-1082 is our best and only option to overturn this year’s tax insanity and put those dirty dog politicians in Olympia on a short leash.
HELP ROUND 2
Last year, Karen and I sold off our family’s retirement fund and loaned $500,000 to kick-start the signature drive for our $30 Tabs Initiative. We don’t have a second retirement fund for I-1082!
GET A BUNCH OF PETITIONS
AND DIVE RIGHT IN
The new petition for I-1082 is now online:
It’s best if you download and print the petitions locally without my involvement (it’s gonna take me all week to catch up with yesterday’s avalanche of petition requests!).
But hey, if you need help, it’s super easy: just tell me how many petition sheets you want and where you live:firstname.lastname@example.org or GiveThemNothing.com and I’ll get ya taken care of. Commit yourself to collecting signatures from now until the Dec 31 deadline.
We have a second chance to make history.
I have faith. I have hope. How ’bout you?
I love you all.
