It is amazing so many people are now involved. A true privilege.
Quick recap on our efforts.
Great success at new signature locations. We are currently at GNC, ACE and AutoZone. Moving around allows us to access various people. Very good start. Other locations are requesting we set up there and supporting us both large and small.
The bill board is up, looks good. See below.
Current Signature Totals:
To go: 1079
Days Left 51
Required Per Day:
21 for 1800
14 for 1400
Voter Registrations: 21
If we had the lower limit of “qualified electors” this would be a sure thing / done deal. That standard only requires about 750 signatures. That is not the case. Payson has a threshold of 15% of “registered voters.” About 30% of “qualified electors.” Your money, but not your input, think about that. Learn about that distinction and why it matters here.
We have some events in the works:
Tuesday, March 13th, 11:30 AM Democratic Women of Rim Country
When: Tue, March 13, 11:30am – 1:00pmWhere: Tiny’s Family Restaurant And lounge, 600 E State Highway 260, Payson, AZ 85541, USA (map)
“Drive in / Sign In.” To try to capture people who commute to the valley daily, or have not had the opportunity to see our pop up locations. Will update via our Facebook page.
“Snacks and Facts.” An early evening event that will be catered. Planning for first part of April.
Something fun. A member from Payson Rocks will be making some rocks for us. This looks like a fun group. People hide painted rocks, share them, etc. A Geo-cache, Easter egg hybrid idea? Again, looks like lots of fun. We will be hiding them around Rumsey Park area. Painted with slogans like: “Your trees,” “Your Rocks,” and “Your Land.” Not many, but hope to raise awareness of the issues among what is a fun hobby of searching for painted rocks.
Please attend this week’s meeting. Topics:
New documents presented via the Town.
Update / Plan for interim collection of petitions and a “notary party.”
Update on “media relations effort.”
Public meeting, 6:00pm, Rim Country Health Community Room, 807 W. Longhorn
Speaking of documents.
260 Chat had a document request filled. Think the town is shooting straight? Playing by the rules?
Think again. Click here, learn some more.
1. In no way shape or form is this the totality of written communication occurring between the Town of Payson and CCP.
2. The original contract was contemplated exclusively between the Town of Payson ….. (Follow the links, learn some more. )
If the Town is not playing by the rules, can the Town be trusted?
Quick rundown on last week.
Not much in the way of public efforts. Attended the Chamber of Commerce Breakfast, but not much more.
Oh yea, the snazzy bill board?
We need more folks to fill slots / positions.
Anybody who is registered can be a circulator.
Hope to see most of you at the meeting.
Thank you again to all who make this effort possible.
