The Petition Committee of UniteLCF! has reached another milestone in our campaign for our Petition for a Territory transfer. We received the approved petition language and map of the transfer back from the Los Angeles County of Education (LACOE). This means we are ready to begin canvassing our Sagebrush neighbors to gather their signatures in support of the Petition.
It’s unfortunate that the two school districts couldn’t come to a negotiated agreement, but in the end the demands of GUSD proved to be too much and hence our need to submit a Petition and take matters into our own hands. Per the LA County Registrar’s Office to meet the requirement that 25% of all registered voters who reside in the transfer area sign the petition.
Our outreach launch will take place on Saturday, February 6, 2016, at the home of Rajiv and Divya Dalal.
Feel free to drop by and meet our committee members, and sign the petition. For those volunteers who will help canvass, we’ll have the street assignments and copies of the Petition and area map, voter registration forms and a sheet of suggestions on how to conduct the door-to-door canvassing. We still have a few streets that need a volunteer, so if you’d like to help out, please join us on Saturday and we will gladly assign you. However, everyone should feel free to stop by if you care to hear more about where we are in the Petition process, next steps, etc…..we’d love to see you.
