EITHER BE THERE ON JANUARY 8TH, OR FOREVER SHUT YOUR MOUTH

HERE WE GO–YOU’RE EITHER A “DO”er OR A “BS”er.
The Date: JANUARY 8TH/ The Place: LEGISLATIVE HALL.
For the last several years we have heard people say: “The legislators make their dicisions for themselves”. “We have to get them out from behind the closed door and in the open”; “They operate in secret.” and so many other words about how we hate what they do in the dark. So NOW do something about it.!!!!!!!
State Senator KAREN PETERSON needs, wants and deserves to get your active, physical presence in Dover to support THE OPEN GOVERNMENT BILL. HER BILL WILL MAKE THE LEGISLATURE (are you ready?), a PUBLIC FREAKIN’ BODY;what an original idea!

It takes 11 votes to make it happen:
These are the Democratic Senators who are siged on to the bill:
PETERSON / SOKOLA/ McBRIDE/ MARSHALL/ BUNTING/
These are the Democrats who have to be FORCED to join in.
THURMAN ADAMS/ HARRIS McDOWELL/MARGARET ROSE HENRY
PATTY BLEVINS/ TONY DeLUCA/ BRUCE ENNIS/ BOB VENABLES
NANCY COOK…Good Luck With That Crowd.

Here are the Republicans who are already signed on:
COPELAND/ SORENSON/ CONNOR/ BONINI/ CLOUTIER
Here are the Repuboicans who have to be FORCED to join:
AMICK/ STILL/ SIMPSON

You, the people will have to take a stand. There is only one thing missing….YOU, and YOU, and YOU, and YOU.
That’s right! YOU are going to make the difference.
Karen has told me that it would be very, very, very impressive if you get there about 1pm to 1:30. I know that LEGISLATORS WILL BE IMPRESSED AS HELL, AND FORCED TO DO THE RIGHT THING, IF THEY SAW A COUPLE OF HUNDRED PEOPLE PEOPLE WEARING THE LABELS PREPARED FOR YOU AND AWAITING YOUR ARRIVIVAL. If you want to bring your own sign for the demonstration…that’s great. People THINK, FEEL, then ACT. All I can do is give you the ideas to think about..the feeling and acting are up to YOU. I’ll see you in Dover. If you don’t come, then don’t ever talk to me about open government again….
REMEMBER, ANY COMBINATION OF 11 VOTES WINS THE DAY.

    Gee: where is Helene Keeley, Hazel Plant, Dennis Williams, JJ Johnson! Where is George Bunting, Pete Schwartzkoff, Bruce Ennis? Sorenson, Pam Maier, Bethany Hall Long! where are you democrats? The only problem I have with this bill, is that it didnt go far enough…should have opened up all state agencies, city, and county….but its a lame ass start…so lets see how many democrats should remain in office…if they dont sign on to open goverment…then any and all that refuse…..CLEAN SWEEP

    LIZ….DEAD RIGHT AGAIN….
    Where are they all indeed! I was concentrating on the Senate, only because that’s where the bill has to pass the first test…by getting out of committee….and theN all those do-nothings you mentioned, had better step up or get out. You are also right about what this bill means. Every one who doesn’t vote for it is telling the people of Delaware that they, (the legislators who refuse to vote for it) ARE AGAINST OPEN HONEST GOVERNMENT….AND THEREFORE DO NOT DESERVE TO BE IN ELECTED OFFICE. THIS BILL IS A LITMUS TEST…..FOR IT—OUT OF OFFICE.

  3. LIZ ALLEN Says:

    gerry: this ibill is a litmus test. However, in my judgement polictically flawed. Here’s what I mean. Look at the bills the republicans put out today….it was the republican party that put them out….solid.”

    Look at the Open Government bill. Its known as the “karen peterson” bill! Not the citizens of delaware bill, or the Democratic view of state government.

    This bill has been pushed by Karen Peterson and she deserves that credit. I am saying that many many democrats, republicans, and independents ALL support this legislation. Therefore, it is the “CITIZENS BILL”, and that is how it should have been marketed.

    Not to do that now, may risk the bill. So lets stop calling it the Peterson bill, and start referring to it as the Citizens Bill of Our Open Government.

    Same can be said, for the Single Payer Health care bill. Although Floyd Mcdowell a citizen, wrote every word of that bill, researched it, studied it, passed the test of 3 independent groups, sponsored by 28 statewide organizations….it has now become known as the HARRIS McDowell biill. There are 18 sponsors of the bill.

    Both bills are truly CITIZEN BILLS, both bills are good government, best practices bill that reflect citizen participation in our own government, and the bills benefits will truly benefit the citizens….neither should be known as one particular persons bill…..that is shortsighted and weakens its position.
