How do we alert our neighbors about the threat to Palm Beach County's voter-initiated and -approved term limits law?
Well, to put the proposal on the ballot back in 2002, we distributed petitions to our friends, neighbors and business associates -- not to mention strangers in the streets! -- and the recipients reacted with enthusiasm. Taking a page from that successful playbook, we've created a simple palm flyer to print out and distribute.

The flyer's message is short and clear. It tells the basics of the story, names the two commissioners (Burt Aaronson and Karen Marcus) who have announced they will defy the voters and urges our neighbors to learn more by going to this website. It also suggests they print out and distribute more palm flyers.
This is much easier than petitioning, and is nonetheless an effective way to get the word out. All you need to do is click here and print. Then pass them out at work and other places you go. Keep them at your desk and include when paying all local bills. We'll be organizing group distribution at post offices and other public places too. If you'd like to volunteer, please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Thank you for your efforts to defend this citizen-initiated law from politicians who place their own self-interest above that of their community.
