Come Sign Referendum Petitions in Aberdeen, Madison, Watertown, and Huron

It’s Day 39 of our petition drive to refer Senate Bills 69 and 177, the Incumbent Protection Plan and the youth minimum wage. If you’d like to sign our petitions and help protect democracy from our power-hungry Legislature, here are four upcoming opportunities:

  • I’ll take signatures Saturday morning (tomorrow!) at the Aberdeen candidates forum, Hub Area Multi-District Vocational Center, 640 9th Ave SW. I’m speaking as a candidate at 10; I’ll take signatures before and after that portion of the show.
  • Madison signers can head to the post office downtown to sign petitions Monday and Tuesday, May 11 and 12, morning and afternoon.
  • Watertown signers can find petitions at Classroom Connections, 321 1st Ave NE, Monday – Friday 9:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. and Saturday from 10-4, for the duration of our petition drive, which runs through June.
  • Looking ahead a couple weeks, Huron signers can catch me at the Beadle County Democratic Forum on Thursday, May 21, noon to 1 p.m., at the Huron Events Center, downtown, 100 4th St. SW.

We’re getting lots of signatures, but we need lots more, including yours! Come sign a petition, or go big and download petitions of your own to sign and circulate among your friends and neighbors!

    FYI Mr. Heidelberger, Colorado legislature has just made it more difficult to petition a citizen’s initiative by requiring each measure get a financial impact assessment by legislative council analysts. Governor strong armed it through and will sign.
