Coming to a close

We have reached our goal of obtaining 500 signatures and we are now collecting extras to cover any possible errors there might have been in getting the signatures. The signatures will have to be verified and any signatures that can't be verified will not count. So it is important to go beyond 500.

Today we sent one final request for Mr. McCord's resignation. Down deep in my heart, I don't think he'll do it, but I wanted to provide every opportunity for him before we finalize the petition to request the grand jury. The deadline for the resignation is Wednesday, July 23rd at 4:00. If it's not in at that point, we will file the petition. The course will be set and there will be no turning back.

If only he would choose to step down on his own....
