We did it: 5000 Petition Signatures and Still Counting
Yes, we did it!! In under three weeks, the magic target of 5000 signatures has been reached!! I really cannot believe how quick this target has been reached. I believe people have really got behind it, because they feel so strongly about what is happening at Cornwall Council.
The ePetition is near the 4000 signature mark, and the paper version is over 1200. The paper petition final total is going to be much higher as many of the paper copies have not been returned for counting! If you do have a paper version, please could you sent it back as soon as you can? I know the 5000 mark has been passed, but I really believe the total number will be nearer 6000.
There are so many people to thank who have made this possible to name them all would fill the page. I would though like to say thank you to all and everyone. You really have made this possible.
Now, once I have all the various copies and version in, I will present them to Cornwall Council for final verification. Then, I will make sure, along with my colleagues this is an agenda item at the next full council meeting. It will not be on the 16th, as the time frame for checking and getting all the petition in is a little tight!
I will keep you informed.
Again, thank you!
