URGENT REQUEST TO ALL OPPOSED TO INTERSTATE 3 !

PETITION TO STOP INTERSTATE 3

United States Senators and Representatives sponsoring the Interstate 3 proposal, state and local officials, Department of Transportation personnel and people across the region and nation are closely watching local public responses to the outrage of an interstate through the Southern Appalachian mountains, a highway widely called “Interstate 3.” Our officials state that, as our representatives in this democratic nation, they will “ Do the will of the people.” Many of those directly involved in this decision have said publicly that if people who live near a proposed route are opposed to the Interstate, then they will do all in their power to prevent its construction. Really? Proof is in their ACTIONS!

OUR part is to let them HEAR OUR VOICES OPPOSING I-3 or any interstate through the Southern Appalachians! Written documentation proving public opposition to this interstate will strengthen our campaign. Let’s ACT by sending officials our signatures and our message. Hold our elected representatives and other responsible officials to their word. Collect as many petition signatures as you can to STOP I-3 !

PETITION GOALS are to :

  • MINIMALLY secure signatures from 52% of registered voters in your county, and as many other residents as possible. Example : Towns County, Ga. has 6550 registered voters, so Towns County minimal target is 3406 voter signatures;
  • Keep the petition going until we REACH the goal;
  • Notify officials and provide them signed petition copies as soon as we reach minimal signature levels.

The Plan :

  • As soon as possible, print copies of the Stop I-3 Petition for yourself and friends (select Web Page or MS Word Document) or contact Bill Blumreich at 706-896-9776 (in Young Harris) for a copy if you don’t have a computer/printer;
  • Secure signatures from friends, relatives, nearby neighbors and the public in general. Our success requires YOUR LEGWORK! However, all of us working within our home communities, counties and states will make this task easier. Also PLEASE ASK LOCAL BUSINESSES if they will place petitions in their place of business for public signatures;
  • Keep all of your signed petitions!
  • Starting end January 2006, send a monthly compilation of the number of signatures you and your team have compiled to : Ginny Heckel, StopI-3 Steering Committee (via email: gheckel@wt.net or via US mail: G.Heckel, 1074 Arbor Drive, Lakemont, Ga. 30552 ). Signature statistics will appear regularly on the Website.

WITH DETERMINATION WE CAN STOP I-3 !
