Last Chance to Stop Senate Bill 16
It's not looking very good for the referendum to overturn Senate Bill 16. The Plain Dealer reports:
If you have not yet signed the petition, please do so as soon as possible. The Buckeye Association of Club Executives has a list of locations throughout the state where you can sign.
State election officials said Friday that only 125,430 valid signatures had been gathered by the Vote No on Issue 1 Campaign - slightly more than half of the 241,366 needed to make the fall ballot. However, supporters of the ballot push have 10 days from Monday to continue collecting signatures.
"Obviously, those percentages are a lot lower than we had expected," said Sandy Theis, a spokeswoman for the strip club owners pushing for the vote. "I still think we have a very good chance to be on the ballot."
Also, you can download a petition and circulate it among your friends. The Citizens for Community Standards provide instructions. Thanks to the good folks at the Ward 20 Democratic Club who signed my petition this past Tuesday night.
