I support the City Ordinance establishing a Santa Fe municipal electric utility

I am writing to congratulate the City for its bold step to establish a municipal utility in Santa Fe, NM by Ordinance and express my strong support for the proposal. Like fellow Santa Feans I believe we should be doing more to shift to renewable energy and take advantage of the enormous potential and local economic benefits of solar. By using its authority under state law to create a municipal electric utility, the City is asserting Santa Fe's right to make energy decisions through a local, democratic process that benefits our residents, builds resilience in the face of climate disruption,...

Governor O'Malley: Ban fracking in Maryland

Governor O’Malley, the nation is watching. In your last two months as governor of Maryland, you have a unique opportunity to safeguard public health and the environment by keeping fracking out of the state. A ban on fracking in Maryland would set a strong example for elected officials around the country, one that promotes informed choices based on sound, independent science and places constituent safety and well-being first. What happens in Maryland impacts all of us. The time to ban fracking is now.

Reverse the decision on Keystone XL

The Keystone XL crosses the Great Sioux Nation Treaty Lands. The Rosebud Sioux Tribe, a sovereign nation, objects to having KXL cross their lands. We contend that going ahead with KXL would be an unconscionable act of aggression against this nation and recommend that the decision authorizing KXL be reversed and dissolved.

Stand with Senator Murphy in Support of Diplomacy with Iran!

Congress must let diplomacy work with Iran. On November 13, Senator Chris Murphy (D-CT) spoke on the Senate floor, arguing that "we are at a critical moment in negotiations with Iran," and S. 2650, a dangerous piece of anti-diplomacy legislation, could kill nuclear negotiations with Iran and leave war as the only option. I support Senator Murphy and urge you to also speak out in favor of negotiations.

Tell Senators Bennet And Udall To Stop Pesticide Poisonings

Dear Senator, An estimated 1.1 billion pounds of pesticides are applied to crops annually in the United States, and farmworkers face a greater occupational threat from these chemicals than other workers, with tens of thousands of farmworkers each year experiencing pesticide poisoning. These are men, women and approximately 500,000 children who urgently need stronger protections from pesticide exposure. While the EPA has proposed an updated Worker Protection Standard (WPS), there are certain areas that must be strengthened to correct the inequity that leaves farmworkers less protected than other workers. Please urge the EPA to strengthen and finalize a WPS that:...

Petition to Mitch Mcconnell against nomination of Senator Inhofe for Environment and Public Works Committee

Dear Senator McConnell, The bi-partisan intentions that you recently expressed after your victory in the mid-term elections were encouraging to those concerned about the world we will bequeath to our children. Therefore, we the undersigned implore you to reconsider nominating Senator Inhofe as chair of the Environment and Public Works committee. Inhofe’s extremist rhetoric –such as labeling those citizens concerned about climate change as Nazis, or claiming that climate change is not in alignment with the Christian world view—are at best divisive and have no place in a bipartisan dialogue. According to a recent survey conducted by the Yale University...

Mayor Manheimer: Help save antibiotics for medicine!

Mayor Manheimer, I urge you and the Asheville City Council to pass a resolution calling for federal action to halt the overuse of antibiotics on factory farms so that they are effective for when we really need them. Eighty percent of all antibiotics in the U.S. are fed to healthy animals living in filthy, crowded living conditions on factory farms. This practice is breeding antibiotic-resistant bacteria — threatening public health and making our life-saving antibiotics less effective.

DC Council: Don't Misfire on the Soccer Stadium Deal

Mayor-Elect Bowser, Councilmembers and Councilmembers-Elect: Please oppose B20-805, the District of Columbia Soccer Stadium Development Act of 2014, or any similar proposal rushed through the Council without proper public oversight. The Council should consider development of a new soccer stadium at least 100 days after the new mayor and council have been sworn in.

LGBT Discrimination

Under a new proposal by state senator Donna Campbell, Texas businesses would be allowed to fire LGBT employees and turn away LGBT customers-a legal maneuver that critics have described as a license to discriminte. Sign this petition to let our state lawmakers know this is not acceptable.

Save Thanksgiving- Keep Family First

"SAVE THANKSGIVING! This true American holiday is a day for the celebration of families, friends, and loved ones. It’s our opinion that retailers who choose to open on Thanksgiving show no respect to their employees and families and are in total disrespect of family values in the United States of America. Enjoy your meal with family, friends, and loved ones.! ‪#keepfamilyfirst " PC Richard & Son
