A petition was recently circulated but most of us got it just days before the deadline. Now work on a new petition is in process. I received this email regarding the new petition and wanted to pass the info along:
Note that a Plan of Action Discussion group/Forum has been created for the purpose of developing a plan of action and a thoughtful Whitehouse petition for the Federal Recognition of Non-Federal Recognized Creeks. http://www.jacksoncountycreeks.org/apps/forums/show/14128746...
Suggested specific wording, discussions, views, and feedback will be essential in formulating the final document, and will not to be submitted without Action Committee approval. You are welcome to join the Action Committee.
Advanced notice will be given before the petition is sent, so that any needed final changes can be incorporated. There is no immediate rush on this. A well thoughout petition is the objective.
If you are interested in participating, please utilize the discussion group to express your ideas on what you believe the petition should request and why, and with the specific wording desired, and to advise of changes needed or desired. We are starting off with a blank piece of paper and your feedback and discussion, and suggested specific wording, is appreciated.
Feel free to email me directly with your comments as well.
