Need Help!

Ok, somebody recently wrote into our local newspaper about opening our local dragstrip, I plan on starting a petition and getting those papers to start going around town and having people sign them, the problem is, I don't have the slightest clue on where to begin

any suggestions/etc would be VERY helpful. Thanks

If the dragstrip is owned by your city or county municipality a petition may encourage them to open if the demand is high enough. On the other hand, if the dragstrip is owned privately a pledge of support may be the ticket.

I imagine the operating expense of the dragstrip is extremely high, find out who the owner is, rather than a petition offer to help sell monthly memberships.

1,000 members payng $20.00 per month will certainly get the owners attention.

Just my 2 cents!

It's city owned, it'd be too hard to buy it from the city and open it up for one person, so, I was just trying to find a good place to start/wording the beginning of a petition, causes, etc

Here is an on-line petition started by some people in CT to reopen a dragstrip.

Also, you can start your own on-line petition here;
