Editor of the Reformer,

Under the current political, social and racist unrest, and with the COVID threat and the curtailment of public events, and Main Street banner raisings, we think it appropriate to ask Brattleboro voters to send this petition to the Brattleboro Select Board through Town Manager Peter Elwell.

First, please share this email with your friends and other registered voters in Brattleboro. Then copy the text below into an email to woodybernhard48@gmail.com so that we can keep track. (On Peter's advice, to limit the work for the town, we will send all the emails to Peter as one bundle.)

We know this is not legally binding, but we would like to convey the spirit of our effort to the Select Board in hopes that they will agree.

Thank you all.

Please use your legal name and address as a registered Brattleboro voter to sign your email.

Please send only one email.

Copy this into your email without changes:

Subject: Civil Rights For All banner petition

I am a registered voter of the Town of Brattleboro and hereby petition the Board of Select People of the Town of Brattleboro to fly the We Celebrate Democracy/Civil Rights For All main street banner over Main Street in Brattleboro whenever there is a space for a banner to be hung.

Sign with your legal name and address.

Send to woodybernhard48@gmail.com.

Thank you.

Woody Bernhard

Brattleboro, July 26
