The petition drive to protest August City Council passage of Charter Ordinance #20 is successful.
This action by
registered voters demonstrates steadfast belief in democracy.

citizens feel they are at the mercy of government and the bureaucrats who run the system.
Democracy can exist
only with informed concerned citizens who exercise their voting rights.

petition was an encouraging action by all who participated and especially the registered voters who signed.
Petition for to

Please continue to
work with these two representatives and other council members
to protect democracy
and prompt reasonable taxation for Augusta citizens.
