Last days of the petition

March 31, 2008 by Philip Barron · 1 Comment 

The last day of the name-gathering phase of the petition to the House and Senate Armed Services Committees is Friday, April 18. As that day approaches, I’ll work on formatting the petition and making arrangements for delivery to the lawmakers on those committees, and will add more names as they appear on the online list.

A note about formatting: The names and comments of the signatories will be included, but ZIP code and state information will not.

I’ll post more information about the process in the coming days. Thanks very much for your attention, and for your help in communicating LaVena’s story.

My apologies to anyone who tried and failed to access the LaVena petition recently. The yearly membership at the site hosting the petition needed to be renewed. I’ve done that, and the petition is up and running with no problems. Again, apologies for any inconvenience.
