Party On

In a follow-up to Monday's follow-up, Moderate Party of Rhode Island Chairman Ken Block now reports that the Board of Elections has provided him with signature petition forms. Now it's up to Block and his supporters to get 23,588 signatures from registered voters and get them certified by the board of canvassers of Rhode Island's 39 townships. With that accomplished, the MPRI will become one of the state's official political parties, and it can field candidates for the 2010 state elections.

Signature petition forms are now available at Block's business, Sympatico Software Systems, at 20 Altieri Way, #3 in Warwick, RI. Block will be throwing a petition party at Sympatico from 5 to 7 P.M. on Monday, June 15, where volunteers can pick up forms and celebrate the MPRI's legal victory. Further down the road, Block will be organizing his volunteers to collect signatures during the Fourth of July parade in Bristol. He figures if he can hit the streets with enough volunteers, he'll be able to get all 23,588 signatures that day.

So, if you'd like to help Ken Block launch his less-insane rival to the Rhode Island GOP, swing on over to his office in Warwick, pick up some forms, and go out and get those signatures. Because you can never have too many conservative political parties.
