• Remove the Trump Adopt-a-Highway Sign
    NYC DOT’s own policy as per its website (http://bit.ly/DOTAdopt) is that “Highways can be adopted by individuals, companies, or organizations (but not political candidates and campaigns).” This sign should have been removed in 2015 and, according to DOT’s policy should not be in place now, as Trump has stated an intention to run again in 2024.

  • TWO TERM LIMITS FOR ALDERMEN AND ALDERWOMEN
    Decades upon decades I witnessed as our local politicians take advantage of our communities and of the will of the people. They know the statistics and averages and how to get people activated and how to keep people inactive. Politicians in office know that people who don’t vote are the same people who say things will never change and are completely discouraged from partaking in our local politics and activities. They see the same politicians election after election making the same decisions and believe deep down inside that things will never change and that their one vote could never count. Politicians take advantage of this and allow themselves to get reelected over and over while not activating any new community members to get involved in our local government. The same voters vote for them year after year, and have no interest in encouraging the youth or new community members to get involved. Those that benefit from a politician being seated for decades are the ones that will vote and are the ones that will activate more voters like them to get the result they want. The people of Illinois are an example of these problems that come from politicians holding seats for far too long! We've had so many of our recent politicians go to jail because of their illegalities just slipping through the cracks, yet they were voted in election after election. At any given time an Illinois politician is under investigation and this is not right! Right now on this date 11/23/2020, the Mayor of Chicago, several Aldermen and woman and the decision to allow General Iron to move locations from the North side of Chicago to the South Side of Chicago is under investigation. This example is the #StopGeneralIron movement. Setting term limits will put an end to many of these problems. When we place two term limits on our local Aldermen and women it will activate more people to get involved in our government with each election and we will have a better and more current representation of the will of the people. Imagine knowing that when elections come up people will actually be working to build a better community and working towards activating new voters instead of manipulating our local government against the will of the people and suppressing our voters. The goal is to have as many people active in our local politics every four years not just when our community is at rock bottom! Setting a two a term limit to Aldermen and women will contribute to building a bigger and better community, involved and engaged and will also detour any local loyalist who will do the most to work against the will of the people. Please sign this petition for the good of the people! Thank You!

  • DONOVAN LAW: Save Our Children, Save Our Families- Change the System!!!
    Families have been destroyed by addiction. New Hampshire Laws needs to CHANGE! Too many lives have been lost because of the lengthy process it is to try and get our loved ones into a rehabilitation center when they are adult age. By the time the paperwork has been filed it is always too late. My Name is Meth I destroy homes, I tear families apart, take your children, and that's just the start. I'm more costly than diamonds, more precious than gold The sorrow I bring is a sight to behold. If you need me, rememeber I'm easily found, I live all around you - in schools and in town. I live with the rich, I live with the poor, I live down the street, and maybe next door. I'm made in a lab, but not like you think, I can be made under the kitchen sink. In your childs closet, and even in the woods, If this scares you to death, well it certainly should. I have many names, but there's one you know best, I'm sure you've heard of me, my name is crystal meth. My power is awesome, try me you'll see, But if you do, you may never break free. Just try me once and I might let you go, But try me twice, and I'll own your soul. When I possess you, you'll steal and you'll lie, You do what you have to -- Just to get high. The crimes you'll commit for my narcotic charms, Will be worth the pleasure you'll feel in your arms. You'll lie to your mother, you'll steal from your dad, When you see their tears, you should feel sad. But you'll forget your morals and how you were raised, I'll be your conscience, I'll teach you my ways I take kids from parents, and parents from kids, I turn people from God, and separate friends. I'll take everything from you, your looks and your pride, I'll be with you always -- right by your side. You'll give up everything -- your family, your home, Your friends, your money, then you'll be alone. I'll take and take, till you have nothing more to give When I'm finished with you, you'll be lucky to live. If you try me be warned - this is no game, If given the chance, I'll drive you insane. I'l ravish your body, I'll control your mind I'll own you completely, your soul will be mine. The nightmares I'll give you while lying in bed, The voices you'll hear, from inside your head. The sweats, the shakes, the visions you'll see, I want you to know, these are all gifts from me. But then it's too late, you'll know in your heart, That you are mine, and we shall not part. You'll regret that you tried me, they always do, but you came to me, not I to you. You knew this would happen, many times you were told, But you challenged my power, and chose to be bold. You could have said no, and just walked away, If you could live that day over, now what would you say? I'll be your master, you will be my slave, I'll even go with you, when you go to your grave. Now that you have met me, what will you do? Will you try me or not? It's all up to you. I can bring you more misery than words can tell, Come take my hand, let me lead you to hell. (This was written by a young Indian girl who was in jail for drug charges, and was addicted to meth. She wrote this while in jail. As you have just read, she fully grasped the horrors of the drug, as she tells in this simple, yet profound poem. She was released from jail, but, true to her story, the drug owned her. They found her dead not long after, with the needle still in her arm) Addiction does not discriminate Sign this petition - CHANGE THE SYSTEM

  • More funding for resources, less funding for campus police
    Many students drop out of college because of the expenses, more scholarships can make a difference. Campus police can also be racially biased to minorities which is more than half of CSULA campus. Rather than making students feel safe, they perceive campus police to be targeting them.

  • Black's Beach Recreational Scandal "STOP Commercialization and privatization of SD Parks"
    Hello Friends of our public We would like to see a discussion of the Torrey Pines Gliderport (which is owned by the City of San Diego) be added to the agenda for the next LJ Town Council meeting. We have been requesting this for many months and have been given many excuses in return. The Torrey Pines Gliderport is city land that has been leased - for FREE - to a private FOR PROFIT business since 1998. It was originally a 5 year lease with an option to be extended for ONE additional 5 year term. So it expired in 2008 and yet continues to this day. In about 2006, the City was sued for the many abuses of the Gliderport business, and the City settled the lawsuit in the complainant's favor and agreed to create a Torrey Pines City Park Advisory Board containing all interested stakeholders. The City (Mayor Sanders) created the "Board" under the wrong section of the City Charter (43b rather than 43a - look it up), and that enabled the City to both limit and terminate the Board to keep it from correcting the ongoing problems and abuses. To this day there is no oversight by the City and the business brings in millions of dollars every year without a dime going to the City itself. The Torrey Pines Gliderport is a poster child for the corruption in San Diego, We want the La Jolla Town Council to investigate and address the Issue with the City Council to fix it. (Closure) We have the 1998 lease agreement which I believe is still in effect to this day. Feel free to verify that this lease is current with the City's Real Estate Assets Division. Thank You I also welcome anyone contacting Me personally for more details. Ernie Casco (858) 568-1384 ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ My Speech LJ Town Council Nov 12th 2020 Hello my name is Ernie Casco La Jolla resident, senior pilot TPGP We need LJTC help, protecting our La Jollas recreational freedom at the Gliderport. We have a proven Recreational public Waiver, that would end the dispute, An Easy fix could be done within a week. Currently Working in LA , Colorado, and Yosemite I believe. This would ....Effectively split Tandem /School operation... from public recreation freeflight. The waiver would,... Stop mandatory Club fees. Stop Insurance Fees. Both, ridiculous amounts of $. By No contest, are illegal collection of funds. (not required by law.) The waiver would also,... Stop the signing of current unfair Wavers. Stop the monopoly, the threat of violence, personal loss, false report and arrest, as they fight over power control & personal profit. The Tandem/School would,... Pay for their own insurance. (required by Law). Pay for their oversight... needed for Public Safety. San Diego City liabilities are already covered by California Recreational Statues Law. A Recreational Waiver is working at other locations, where needed. There are No waivers required at any of the other San Diego Sites. The Recreational waiver restores public access. Secures our recreational rights and freedom. Provides a Safe Tandem /School operation. It's a Win for the City, LJTC and the public rights ... I'm asking LJTC to bring this to Agenda, Provide recommendation & letter in support Show Fair representation and End the dispute.

  • Biden / Harris: Reject Mitch McConnell’s Handcuffs
    President-elect Joe Biden and Vice President-elect Kamala Harris have won the 2020 presidential election with more popular votes than any other presidential ticket in U.S. history. Despite this, Republican Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell has threatened to block Biden / Harris appointees from being confirmed in the U.S. Senate. Biden and Harris can get around McConnell's threats by using recess appointments and the Federal Vacancies Reform Act to build a strong cabinet that is unafraid of facing America's challenges. Unfortunately, reports have indicated that the Biden team may be considering a number of conservative appointees, citing Republicans’ current control of the Senate. The Biden transition team must reject McConnell’s antidemocratic threats and fulfill its mandate. The Biden / Harris administration should select a bold, visionary cabinet that can fulfill the trust and will of the millions of people who voted for them. The Revolving Door Project and Demand Progress have put together a clear memo demonstrating how Biden and Harris can build a cabinet free from McConnell's handcuffs. https://therevolvingdoorproject.org/no-mitch-mcconnell-is-not-the-46th-president/ America needs a presidential cabinet that has the courage to solve our country's problems -- not a team undermined by Mitch McConnell.

  • Chicago 2021 Budget
    It is the duty of our elected officials to bring a visionary response that is compassionate and bold and that addresses long-term inequities. For months, Chicagoans have participated in demonstrations which aimed to make our wishes abundantly clear. We demand a reimagining of public safety, which prioritizes holistic services and programs that address both the immediate and the long-term needs of the community, rather than continuing to pour our tax dollars into the Chicago Police Department. Second, the economic hardships residents face are as varied and diverse as our city. Our City Council must protect public sector jobs, address the needs of our housing insecure and homeless residents, increase investment in equity, and avoid property tax increases. Finally, City Council must continue to pursue and develop progressive revenue sources that will be vital to accomplish all of the above. I stand in solidarity with other Chicagoans and the Chicago Progressive Caucus which aims to address the needs of the 2021 Budget through bold measures which will help, not hurt, our communities.

  • Appoint an Indigenous person as Secretary of the Interior
    The Department of the Interior oversees the Bureau of Indian Affairs as well and the Bureau of Indian Education. The US has never had a Native American in this position, making decisions that affect every aspect of Native life. Tell President Joe Biden that the US needs a Native person in this vital role.
