Anti-refugee petitions falling short

A measure to ban refugee centers in Twin Falls County may not have enough signatures to get on the ballot. Rick Martin, the head of the Committee to End the CSI Refugee Center and the main organizer of the initiative effort, spent the weekend gathering signature sheets and stopped at the county clerk’s office early Monday morning to drop them off. Martin said other volunteers would stop by later Monday to drop off more signatures, but he said it would take a John Elway-style fourth-quarter comeback to clear the 3,842-signature threshold for a ballot measure before the 5 p.m. Monday deadline. Even if the measure doesn’t get on the ballot, Martin said, gathering signatures has been valuable in terms of making contacts and that he plans to continue his efforts/Nathan Brown, Twin Falls Times News.

Question: Would you sign this petition, if you could?
