Supporters of The Seniors Coalition are responding positively to Coalition President Dr. Joseph Bridges "Million Petition Challenge."
Petitions continue to pour into TSC from around the country from seniors who are fed up with Washington.
Late last year Bridges challenged Coalition supporters to sign and return a total of one million petitions demanding CoLA reform, one million protesting extending Social Security to illegal aliens and one million supporting a Social Security lock box. The petition drives for these three issues were already the largest in TSC history and Bridges wants each campaign to surpass one-million within the first six months of 2012.
"So far, our folks are responding enthusiastically," reports Director of Membership Services Sean Ferritor. "Petitions on all three issues arrive each day. We then are routinely sending reports on these petition campaigns up to Capitol Hill."
All three issues are considered to be at the top of TSC's 2012 agenda and petition campaigns related to each one have been generating huge numbers of signed petitions for years. However, Dr. Bridges told the TSC Executive Board last year that 2012 would be a pivotal year for America's seniors and that he wanted the Coalition to redouble its efforts make sure the voices of America's senior citizens are heard.
And, so far, so good.
