Success! We're Headed for the November 2010 Ballot!
Today, at 10:30am at the Elections Division of the Secretary of the Commonwealth of Massachusetts, Carla Howell and several volunteers filed the last batches of validated signatures for this petition drive.
“We filed a bullet-proof, challenge-proof number of signatures for our ballot initiative to roll back the sales tax from 6.25% to 3%,” said Carla Howell.
“We needed 66,593 validated signatures to qualify. Today, we turned in the last of over 75,978 validated signatures — 9,385 more signatures than the law requires.”
Why did we need to carefully collect 94,000 signatures? Massachusetts’ Draconian ballot petitioning laws. Regulations and court rulings that allow legally registered voters’ signatures to be disqualified. Plus, an aggressive teachers union that loves tax hikes and hates tax cuts.
Results? We’re headed for the November 2010 ballot.
