Mail the Petitions

Sgt. John Northen (ret) has stepped up to the plate once again. He has generously agreed to be the point man for the Referendum and collect whatever sheets we send his way. He has a few stipulations and we have agreed to post them so everyone is on the same page:
  • All Petitions must be notarized by the person collecting the signatures. For those of you unfamiliar with the notarization process, you must sign the Petitions in the presence of a Notary who will then stamp the Petition. This is a legal process and must be followed. BY LAW, Sgt. Northen cannot have the Petitions notarized on his own unless he collected the signatures. Most lawyers, some banks and even the Credit Union have Notaries on staff who will Notarize for a small fee or no fee for members/clients.
  • Petitions will all be 8.5 by 11 inch paper. We had it set up to print that way on the website. Please do not deviate from this size. Proper postage must be on all the envelopes, and a return address is requested. Sgt. Northen will not and should not be responsible for postage due, registered mail or certified mail. First Class mail is fine, but if hand delivery is necessary for large numbers of Petitions, arrangements can be made via e-mail with Sgt. Northen for a meeting within the boundaries of the 018th Police District during hours chosen by Sgt. Northen.
  • To verify receipt of the Petition delivery, it is requested that you include a self-addressed stamped envelope or postcard so Sgt. Northen can mail back a receipt. We can't require you to do this, but in the event of a challenge (and there will be challenges), it is preferable to show the Petitions were mailed legitimately.
  • DO NOT number the Petitions. Once they are bound, Sgt. Northen will number the pages.
And the information for delivery:
  • JOHN NORTHEN
    1960 LINCOLN PARK WEST
    CHICAGO, IL 60614
EXACTLY as posted above. E-mail contact is below:
  • CPDFOP7@yahoo.com
Anyone wishing to assist Sgt. Northen with anything he might need is welcome to contact him. Let's see what we can do.

Just wondering, can the signatures be for more than one issue. Example, less aldermen, ability to recall, term limits etc.

"To verify receipt of the Petition delivery, it is requested that you include a self-addressed stamped envelope or postcard so Sgt. Northen can mail back a receipt."

You can use the green "Return Receipt Requested" cards at the Post Office. When Sgt. Northen gets the mail, he removes the card, signs it, and gives it back to the mailman -- it then comes back through the mail to you as proof of delivery.

If you send it Certified Mail (NOT Registered, that's for objects with large monetary value that should be insured and is an unnecessary expense for paperwork), Return Receipt Requested, you'll get not only the green card back, but a tracking number that you can enter on www.usps.com to see where the piece is and when it was delivered.

Again, official proof against any challenges.

SERIOUS QUESTION

Does it require a permit to collect signatures randomly on the street ? We’ve all seen people from outfits like Green Peace and such at busy intersections, especially on the weekend s hawking signatures. Does this practice require a permit ?

Off topic but here's a little something for all you 55 and out people. A summary of Pelosi's Health Care Bill highlights this tidbit

— Sets up a $10 billion reinsurance program for insurance plans which cover early retirees (those between ages 55 and 65).

Not sure what a reinsurance program entails but you had better believe the city knew this was coming as many speculated.

"Proper Postage" for a business-sized (9 1/2" x 4 1/8") envelope is:

Up to 1 oz. = 44 cents

1-2 oz. = 61 cents

2-3 oz. = 78 cents

Postcard = 28 cents

If in doubt, weigh envelope at the post office. No CERTIFIED letters will be accepted.

Kudos to John Northen for undertaking this task. As always, the "devil is in the details". You outlined the specifics for proceedures very well. But just to be clear,signatures must be REGISTERED VOTERS of CHICAGO ONLY?
SCC,you are right on target about potential "CHALLENGES." Don't want to overstate the obvious, but would hate to see hours of work go down the drain. Random signatures pose risks,& illegals (who might be afraid to say they can't vote), plus, of course Stupid people who might sign for
2 or 3 different petitioners.Does
anyone need to be reminded not to collect signatures while in UNIFORM?, and as usual watch out for all manner of camera devices.A refresher course might be in order.
Thank You

Good luck with this.

Even beyond the office expenses saved, with 25 council members, each is high-profile enough that voters can hold them accountable, and each would have enough power on the council to potentially make issues out of important things.

Next, I'd like to get rid of the State Senate. Or the State House. It works in Nebraska.

Hello,

This is directed to the many folks who have contacted me at CPDFOP7@yahoo.com. First, I thank you for your kind comments. This was NOT my idea. (Frankly, based on the population/members of city council ratios in New York City, Los Angeles, Houston and Phoenix, I personally believe that sixteen (16) wards in Chicago is more than enough for efficient government administration and legislation.)

Add to that a laundry list of reforms including a recall referendum initiative, term limits, a legit, transparent and clout-free promotion and assignment process, ad infinitum.


More importantly, perceive me as merely providing a mailing address for delivery of the duly executed, notarized petitions. I forwarded your inquiries and offers of assistance to SCC. Perhaps, he/she/they is in a better position to respond.

I will NOT be picking up petitions with one possible exception. Also, it is my understanding that each of multiple pages must be executed and notarized. If someone with fifteen (15) or more pages wishes to deliver them to me personally and with CONFIDENTIALITY assured, contact me via eMail with your full name, address, phone numbers and unit of CPD assignment, if applicable. At my discretion, we may arrange a meet during daytime hours at a high visibilty location within the confines of the 18th Police District (in front of the station house, Pearson & Michigan, Mariano Park aka "the Viagra Triangle", etc.)

Under no circumstances will I sign for CERTIFIED mail, pay postage or seek the services of a notary public.

My regards.

3. IF YOU HAVE BELOW 30% TINT IN THE REAR, YOU CAN NOT HAVE FRONT TINT If you have an MPV, which include but are not limited to, SUVs, Station Wagons, minivans, Toasters, etc., and said MPV has factory installed privacy glass (smoked), you are allowed to have up to 50% tint in front."

Take back the Department and the City and the Country and fight to make things right.

Start by getting together with a relative or a friend, who still lives in Chicago and register there to vote.

This should be part of our new contract, if you are retired, AND drawing a pension, you have forever no matter where you live, the right to vote absentee for any city official who appoints a member of the pension board. FOP are (yeah, right) you listening?

See if the mayor would want to kick the retirees then. Ask for it and see if an arbitrator might give it to us.

No, I'm not a Chicago Police Officer, I'm just a common everyday citizen who wouldn't mind spending a few hours in the cold and rain to collect signatures because I don't want public safety cut backs.

If my house catches fire I want a fire truck;
If I get sick I want an ambulance and paramedics;
If I’m in a jam I want someone to come when I dial 911;
I want my family to be safe on the street;
I want to see that police car rolling down the street with an eye out for trouble;
I want all the thousands of things that police officers, fire fighters and paramedics do for me everyday to keep right on happening.

Paying my taxes isn't enough anymore in Chicago, it looks like I have to put my ass on the line a little too and I don't mind because the alternative is unthinkable. Mayor Daley and his cronies have run this city into the ground and bleed it white but it is still my home and I'm not ready to abandon it.

So do I need a permit or not ?

I already know I risk a beating from the thugs at the ward office.

Although I agree with what you are trying to do with the petitions, it won't work. They (the politicians)will go through the petitions with a fine tooth comb and disqualify them. I have first hand experience on this and I am a department member!

IF NOTHING ELSE.... by the time these signatures are counted politicians will be looking my friends. They want to know if we really can make a difference. Whether our goal is reached or not if our numbers CAN make a difference in an election than we have WON the battle. That's when all these pussy politicians who have henceforth refused to come into battle with us will rush to be at our sides. We can pick and choose who we want. Finally. Get those signatures because they matter more than you know.

WHOA!

Enough of "the Northside Lovefest". If you had to walk in my shoes with Daley and his arrogant, corrupt muthafuckers, providing a mailing address is the least that you would do. It also helps to be retired from the CPD clusterfuck.

It's my privilege to help out in a small way. Just don't make me blush, guys.

I already know I risk a beating from the thugs at the ward office.

The person getting the signatures must be a notary or with a notary when the petitions are signed. They, who challenge these petitions, do not go after the people who sign, they go after the notary. There will be challenges.

SCC can you please straighten this out for all and make it clear whats right and whats wrong. This type of info is spooking those who are willing to go out and get signatures. Thank you.

The person collecting signatures does NOT need a Notary Public present. It's only after the signatures (all Chicago voters) are collected that the collector must execute the bottom portion of each page of the petition for the seal of the Notary Public. Fill in all blanks except the page line in lower right handed corner.

Remember that each page of up to ten registered Chicago voters must be seperately executed and notarized.
