Out of county paid petition circulators

EDITOR:

I have forwarded this letter to the district attorney and the individual county supervisors. This was the second time I was told a lie about the fix our rural road initiative (white with pink insert) in an attempt to get my signature. I have heard other reports of these people lying to obtain a signature, which is a misdemeaner under election code 18600.

To All Concerned,

I want to file a formal complaint against the paid signature gatherers for the fix our rural roads petitions.

I was going in my local Food-4-Less in Cameron Park to grocery shop. I was addressed by a person asking me to sign his petitions. He asked if I was from El Dorado County and I said yes. He said he had a local petition and I asked what it did. He stated that it would add another lane to Highway 50 and I asked how? He said they would just build it and then he laughed.

I informed him that there was no such plan by Caltrans in the next 20 years. He said this would fund it and they would have to do it. I told him that was not true and suggested to a gentleman signing another of his state petitions not to sign the fix our rural roads pink one.

I asked if he was being paid and he said yes, that he was from Sacramento. As I was leaving he made another comment to or about me, but I didn’t hear the actual statement. After shopping and checking out I discussed this with Rachael, who was in charge at Food-4-Less. I complained that he had lied to obtain a signature on a petition which is against the law. I’m in favor of the right to petition, but lies are not OK. She said they have complained to the district attorney and the Sheriff’s Office, who were currently considering the potential action. The other groups with the local petitions are neighbor volunteers and answer all questions truthfully.
