We had petitioners working at the Farmers Market, the Black Lives Matter celebration, and PlayTime exhibit celebration at the museum this past weekend. Thanks to Aaron Harder, Anastasia, Bob Abbenzeller, Dennis Slotnick, Tony Szilyagi, Amjad Doumani, Carole Jambard-Sweet, and Doug Jambard-Sweet we all collected in the ballpark of 250 signatures on Saturday ( I apologize if I left anyone out). Not bad! Based on a recount this morning, we have just over 8,000 notarized signatures and have collected a total of over 8,900 signatures!.
There are some big events coming up this week with the Third Thursday Art Loop, the Dragon Boat Festival and Food Truck Festival downtown on the waterfront, and the 5th Annual Fatherhood Walk at Central Catholic next Saturday. Respond via email (djambardsweet [at] gmail.com) or FB if you want to help out at any of these events.
We are focusing in on the week of July 13-17 to submit signatures to the Lucas County B.O.E. We are coordinating with some local elected representatives for the submission of petitions and hope to have a dynamite press conference event.
