Initiative Objective

UPDATE as of 8/29/12:
Members of our group are writing letters to the paper so that there is at least one in each week from now until the date of a POSSIBLE vote by our RTM (Representative Town Meeting, our form of Government) on Sept. 24th.
We are being kindly and ably aided by CCE, Citizens Campaign for the Environment. They are actively canvassing as we speak...they go out when people are home, between 4 and 9 and ask for signatures on petitions and also ask that folks write letters to their District RTM Members urging passage of plastic bag legislation here in Darien.
As of last evening, we had 473 signatures and 196 letters.
They started on or about August 21st and will keep going until the week of September 10th.
It doesn't end there but I'll wait until we get closer to that date to figure out exactly what is next.

If anyone wanted to write a letter to our newspapers, that would be welcome. The opposers claim that we lecture. We pride ourselves on facts and friendliness. It's the only way.

Thanks and wish us luck on the 24th
