This is a community effort. We need as much support as we can get. Everyone has individual strengths, and we’d love to utilize those strengths in the best way possible. Below are a few ways you can help spread the word and gain community support.
1. Educate others.
We know there is a mixture of lack of knowledge and a massive amount of misinformation out there about the State of Jefferson and what we aim to achieve. We need your help getting the word out to your friends and family about what the State of Jefferson represents and why we need as many people as possible to jump on board. Utilize our resource section for PDF documents and flyers to help explain this process. Welcome questions. The more questions the better so we can cover any weak areas that may come up and find a solution. Hold a meeting at your house or a public meeting space and invite those interested to attend.
2. Share on Social Media.
In today’s world, social media is one of the best platforms to reach the masses. Please visit our Facebook page and share with your friends.
3. Gather signatures.
It is our hopes to get thousands of signatures in support of the state of Jefferson by declaration day. In order to achieve this goal, we need your help! The wonderful thing is that there is no age limit in order to sign these forms! If you’re old enough to hold a pen and create a signature, then you’re in! We don’t need addresses or social security numbers, just your signature! Have a family party and get everyone to sign! Download signature forms here- Declaration and Petition FORM
- HOW TO COLLECT SIGNATURES ON THE JEFFERSON STATE DECLARATION AND PETITION SHEET-Thank you for getting involved and joining the effort to collect signatures. This is just a simple support statement. It is not intended to add a motion to a ballot or any other formal process. It will simply show the Supervisors of Tuolumne County that citizens are supportive and want Jefferson State. Therefore all that is required is a Name, Signature and City. No addresses, phone number, social security numbers or anything else. ANYONE CAN SIGN INCLUDING CHILDREN! So lets get out there and have fun with this.
You may return completed forms to Pac and Copy in the Junction near PriceCo or to Gina Wertz’s RE/MAX office at 207 South Washington st. in Sonora.
