We Said “No”
Official Statement and Petition Signing Sites
This committee has decided that because of the unbelievable support from the people of Lane County we are going to make a powerful statement to the Lane County Commissioners and, hopefully, other government agencies around the state of Oregon. We’re going to tell them that the people are not happy with the decisions being made by our elected officials. On Saturday we are going to show them that we can and will stand together to make changes.
We’re dedicating one day”¦. Saturday, March 10″¦.. as the Official “We Said No” Petition Signing Day. We need fifty five hundred and seventy seven approved signatures to get this petition on the ballot. Our goal is to make a HUGE statement”¦we’re not going to just get the signatures we need, but 10,000 signatures.
We’ve secured 8 locations around Lane County and have 100 full time volunteers. Each site will be open from 8am to 5pm. The following are the final sites. Due to the advertising and staffing constraints we can’t add anymore. The committee has made every effort to secure enough sites to accommodate the people of Lane County.
We have three sites in Eugene: Graffiti Alley on River Road, Econo Lodge on 6th Avenue and Eugene Elks Lodge on W. 11th. We have two sites in Springfield: Immanuel Baptist Church on Game Farm Road and Emerald Isle Mobile Home Park on 57th Street.
The site in Florence is the Florence Hearth & Patio Shop on Highway 101. The site in Junction City is D&D Classic Automotive on Ivy Street. The site in Veneta is INSIDE the Ray’s Food Place on Highway 126.
Please watch the Eugene Register Guard for a full page ad on Thursday. It will have information about each site, their addresses and general directions.
I really just want to say to everyone that we’re really looking forward to this day. What started as a simple protest for something out of anger has now generated into fighting for the people of Lane County. Please come out and join us on Saturday. This is your time to stand up and make your voice heard loud and clear that “We Said No”. Thank you.
