There was a time when I went all over to get signatures on petitions....to Massena, Ogdensburg, the Bay, Clayton, Gouverneur, you name it....Organizing county committees, building relationships with Members of Congress, Senators, Members of Assembly, DAs , Treasurers....
This weekend I got two signatures, from people who live at 557. Generally I am done with the ritual, although I was good at it. Seldom got refused, even in the middle of nowhere.
Nobody really does it anymore except the paid staffers and notaries. Most people don't even understand the process or the law.
Today, if I need exercise, I go to Planet Fitness.
