On behalf of all of us with Convention of States, I want to thank you for becoming part of restoring liberty to our nation. Whether you are a volunteer, supporter or a District Captain, all you do is needed, noticed and appreciated.With that said, I am asking you to take another step that will assist us and at the same time, your voice will be heard. I am asking you to go our website, www.conventionofstates.com and click on the link “Sign the Petition”. The minute you complete the petition form, your state legislator is sent a copy where you are asking them to support the Article V Resolution to call for a Convention of States. This is critical for the success of our effort to reign in the power of the federal government.Mark Twain said, “Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn’t do than by the ones you did do…” I know you don’t want to look back and regret that you didn’t sign the petition.This could be the most important step you take on behalf of Convention of States. I want to sincerely thank you for standing shoulder to shoulder with us in this battle to end federal overreach. It is truly up to us.

BELOW IS WHAT THE PETITION LOOKS LIKE
Sign the Petition
Almost everyone knows that our federal government is on a dangerous course. The unsustainable debt combined with crushing regulations on states and business is a recipe for disaster.
What is less known is that the Founders gave state legislatures the power to act as a final check on abuses of power by Washington, DC. Article V of the US Constitution authorizes the state legislatures to call a convention for proposing needed amendments to the Constitution.
Citizens for Self-Governance has launched the Convention of States Project to call an Article V convention to propose only amendments that would impose fiscal restraints on the federal government, limit its power and jurisdiction, and impose term limits on its officials and members of Congress.
I support this approach. I want our state to be one of the necessary 34 states to pass a resolution calling for this kind of Article V Convention. You can find a copy of the model resolution and the Handbook for Legislators and Citizens (which explains the process and answers many questions) here: CLICK HERE for Convention of States Handbook.
I ask that you support the Convention of States Project and consider becoming a co-sponsor of the resolution. Please respond to my request by informing the national COS team of your position, or sending them any questions you may have:
email@example.com or (540) 441-7227.
Thank you so much for your service to the people of our district.
