Progress Florida delivers 6,300 petitions from Floridians, collected in just 48 hours, to Gov. Rick Scott demanding that he stop delaying implementation of the Fair Districts Amendments 5 and 6 that voters passed in November. Here is the petition language: -------- Dear Gov. Scott,
We, the undersigned Floridians, oppose your efforts to prevent Amendments 5 and 6 - the Fair Districts Florida amendments - from becoming law and implemented appropriately.
A super-majority of Floridians voted to enshrine fair districting standards in our state's constitution. We are tired of seeing our politicians draw their own districts to suit their political ambitions, instead of the needs of Florida's people and our communities.
Now is not the time for stalling and delaying tactics. As the governor of all Floridians, we urge you to respect the will of Florida voters and resubmit the Fair Districts Florida amendments to the Justice Department for certification and allow them to become law.
