SO.CA.TA Wants Your Help Gathering Signatures to Get Transit Protections on the Ballot

8:22 AM PST on January 15, 2010

1_15_10_schwarz.jpgHelp put our money where his mouth is.

Sick of transit funding being stolen by the state and want to do something about it? You can help gather signatures for placing on the November ballot the Local Taxpayer, Public Safety and Transportation Act. A packet of petitions can be requested via this online form. They will come in the snail mail with detailed instructions. The deadline to get petitions in for validation is mid-April. I have some and will in the coming weeks be gathering signatures on buses, trains and at transit nodes like Union Station.

MeanerMina in a previous post issued a call to arms for advocates:

This ballot initiative Dana describes above is a great step! I'm all for it! Look for me at your local market talking to voters! Better yet, dear readers, come join me educating voters all over LA!
