Signature gathering on the Kicker for K-12 Schools initiative is moving at an impressive rate!
With a little less than two months to go until signatures are due, we’ve collected more than 32,000 signatures. We now have signature gathering offices in Medford, Eugene, Salem, Hillsboro, Portland, and Bend.
Superstar volunteers from around the state continue to get signatures from their friends, family, and neighbors. This week’s Volunteer Spotlight goes to David Delk of Alliance for Democracy, who also hosts the "Populist Dialogues" cable show.
Over the course of a couple of weeks, David has brought in nearly 150 signatures. Thanks to David, we’re that much closer to getting Kicker for K-12 on the November ballot.
