Dear Klari Crabtree,
Thanks for helping! Please feel free to alert the press about the "Trust The People" petition in any respectful way you know how. It is on track to pass 10,000 signatures today sometime!
I think it is definitely time for this weight of grassroots conviction to be noticed by the media. I hope to be doing some kind of press announcement later today myself. But in some ways it will be even better if different people, besides the petition author, are the ones to contact the press. And since different media may respond to different approaches, the more the better.
This is exactly about letting our voices be heard, in the election itself, and in the petition. In short, go for it!
Thanks and best wishes,
