I do not agree that we can't collect signatures on Wash State property.
There is case law that concerns the Washington State Ferries. Signature
gatherers were at work in those lines of cars. This was challenged in court
and the signature gatherers won.
Same principle, different Washington State Property.
I am several computers down the road from when I had this newspaper article
on my computer. But maybe someone else remembers it, Tim Eyman, maybe.
For your information, people are not allowed to
gather signatures on petitions in Washington State Parks. This afternoon
we were at a public festival at Lake Sammamish State Park gathering signatures
on I-946 when were told to stop by Washington State Parks and Recreation
Commission 'officers' or we would:
- be ticketed
- be given a citation and escorted out of the park
- be arrested
if we didn't, were told that we were "harassing
people", were ourselves harassed by the 'officers' to the point of their
behavior being threatening and followed out of the festival grounds to the
car park by the 'officers'.
