There are multiple ways League members can support this effort:
1. Sign up to receive campaign email alerts at www.StrongAndSafeCommunities.com
2. Pass a resolution in support of the ballot proposal. A sample resolution is available here. It’s important to note that it is legal for local government bodies to approve resolutions in support of ballot issues as long as no public tax dollars are expended. So resolutions are OK.
The campaign has been in full swing for a couple weeks now and will continue to be active until the election in August. League members, for example, have participated in multiple news conferences and meetings with the editorial boards of local newspapers.
If you have question specific to the ballot question and the PPT reform effort contact that League’s Samantha Harkins, Director of State Affairs, at 517-908-0306 or email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
