The Petition was filed today so they will need to garner enough signatures by February. She thinks she needs 4,800 VALID signatures so she will try to get at least 5,500.
I plan to post updates about the drive here on DaCola, and if you have any questions feel free to comment here or email me for more information.
Here is a copy of the initiative language;
