Hillsborough County Petition -
Click here to sign it
Take ACTION! All Florida residents are encouraged to sign this petition
to send a message to all County Commissioners. We must fight to have
this ban repealed and need to work diligently to ensure it does not
spread to other counties.

County Overwhelmed by Emails, Calls and Faxes opposing ban
We don't have all the numbers yet but from the emails sent directly
from the County website, 1801 people have email to oppose the ban and
only 123 have email in support.
Many people who emailed Hillborough County to protest the ban recieved
bounced email messages. Some where concerned that filtering systems
where being used to keep our message from getting through. We've been
assured that "gay" and other similar terms are not on a "nanny" filtering
Apparently the onslaught of emails crashed the County Commissioners'
inboxes temporarily. More than 300 of our supporters sent faxes and
likewise overwhelmed the commissioners offices.
If your email bounced or your fax failed to go through, please send
Keep the pressure on. Your voice matters!
Ric Sulllivan : Helping out at the County Office Building
I would like to see a person or people walking around the County Office
Bldg downtown everyday, Mon. through Fri, from 8'ish to 5'ish. Some
are already doing it from 4:30 to 5:30 pm every work day. I was there
today right after noon, carrying my flag, answering questions about
why I was there, and waving to honks and waves of support. If you have
any time during the day, park your car nearby, feed the meter, take
your flag or sign and walk around and around the building as long as
you can. Then come back another day and stay for a few minutes or a
few hours. Let's get in their faces!
