R-71 petition signature gathering count is too close to call, so we are asking for your help in making one last push.
We feel that by tomorrow morning we will have the 120,577 signatures required, however we also know that some will be invalidated for various reasons. We do not have an adequate cushion of signatures.
We will be turning in the signatures tomorrow at 2 PM.
This is how you can make the difference.
First. If you can gather any additional signatures today, this evening or tomorrow morning, please do so. This will make the difference. If it were not critical, we would not ask.
Second. We are then asking you or someone you know, to drive the additional signatures to Olympia tomorrow [Saturday] at 2 PM and meet Larry Stickney and myself at the Northwest corner of the Capitol steps. We will be there to meet you and to deliver the signatures to the Secretary of State's office.
We know there are several groups and individuals who are already at work on this Help Alert and will be meeting us there.
I will look forward to seeing you as well.
Thank you so much and God bless you.
