We need a team of volunteers who will print out fliers and post them all over the area including Rockford, Machesney Park, Owen Center, North Park, Loves Park, Westmorland, Rockton, and South Beloit.
I work at the Rockford Register Star Im gonna have to talk to some of the reporters about covering this event. Jefferson won't get anymore votes from me.
We think an extra special effort should be made to get the word out in areas of Rockford that are hardest hit
We also need web links to all the radio, TV, and newspapers in all those areas. Are there any community
newspapers in those areas hard hit by rising crime?
There is another small community newspaper called the Rock River Times. http://rockrivertimes.com/
This is widely circulated and "free" and I pretty much see these things all over the place in businesses, restaurants, banks, etc. Just not sure if the owner is Pro 2A as I do not read the paper. (Or any of them for that matter)
Also, I can probably help post filers in the Rockton, S. Beloit area since it's close to home. I would like to however suggest a few small changes to the flyer and get your thoughts?
49 states have concealed carry provisions for law abiding citizens
which recognize the right to carry a defensive firearm
for personal and family protection.
I think the above additions would be beneficial. Wording is very important when dealing with these types of sensitive issues. (Reflecting on the Winnebago County ballot question back in 2010 and how POORLY it was worded)
