Ballot measures across the country passed on November 8th highlighting the fact that progressive values still resonate with the U.S. electorate. Gains were made even in the face of industry deception and big dollar ad campaigns.
The nonpartisan Move To Amend Rock River Affiliate group is petitioning in Watertown from now through Nov. 24 to get a question on the ballot for the April 7, 2015, election. The group is collecting signatures at Veterans Memorial Park, Riverside Park, around town and door-to-door. They will also be outside the polls during the Nov. 4 election asking for signatures.
Move to Amend is beginning a petition campaign in the City of Watertown on September 26 to gather signatures to place the question of a U.S. Constitutional Amendment on the Watertown ballot April 7, 2015.
The Move to Amend amendment basically states:
1. Only human beings, not corporations, unions, non-profits, or other such organizations are entitled to personhood rights, and
2. Money is not speech.
