Please send in your letters of support for HB 2927 today or by Wednesday. For the first time ever, a public hearing will be held on The National Popular Vote on 6-22 in the Senate Rules Committee. Here is my letter. Do what your heart guides you to do. Together, we can make a huge difference in our Democracy today!
Dear Patriots: Are you ready to do something historic and great for our county? Now is the time to move forward on HB 2927 – the National Popular Vote. We can not afford to back-slide with SB 825.
Please open your heart and mind. How is it fair to Democracy that only 500 people elect the President of the United States? It is right, fair, just, and proper that the will of the American people determine our next President. Plus more than 25 counties have sent in resolutions of support for this bill. And this bill has been gaining support since it was first introduced in 2007.
I am a author, musician, and retired social worker. I am also a veteran. I worked at the VA for more than 20 years helping our nation’s heroes have a better life. Now, I am asking all who believe in a kinder, healthier, and more compassionate America to do the right thing today.
Let the will of the People determine our next President.

SUBJECT: Candidate with most votes should win Presidency
The current way we elect the president is broken. It looks like the entire campaign is going to come down to Ohio and Florida and a couple of other states. Oregon doesn’t seem to matter because everyone knows who is going to win here, and the candidates ignore us. But we as American citizens can change all of this.
