Petition Tag - john lewis
Members of Georgia's 5th Congressional District have a choice of candidates this year, for the first time in several decades. John Lewis, the incumbent of 24 years is opposed by Republican Candidate Fenn Little.
While Fenn Little may be an underdog with little name recognition, this does not appear to be an indicator in the support he is receiving from the constituents of this diverse district. John Lewis has refused to reply to the claims that he is a puppet of Washington Politics who is disconnected to his constituent base and their needs and priorities. He has also refused to debate Fenn Little.
If you would like to see these candidates answer the questions for the constituents themselves, PLEASE SIGN THIS PETITION.
'Hanham's Ground is two hectares of open green land used as a cricket field since 1793, adjacent to the River Allen, and close to the centre of the historic Dorset Minster Town of Wimborne. For several years, Waitrose have been trying to acquire the site in order to build a supermarket.
Despite strong local opposition demonstrated by several local petitions, East Dorset District Council perversely granted planning permission in February 2009 and construction on the site commenced during January 2010.
The land is adjacent to the River Allen, a Biodiversity Action Plan Habitat, and home to otters, rare white-clawed crayfish, water voles and other wildlife. There are grounds for believing that measures taken by the developer are inadequate to protect the water from harmful pollution. A significant proportion of the development site lies within a flood plain.
Hanham’s Ground lies within a Conservation Area and the developer has failed to demonstrate that the supermarket will harmonize with existing town centre buildings, in accordance with the district council’s own Planning Guidance. The change of use from an open green playing field to a supermarket and two-level car park, will irreversible affect the character of the town centre.
The site lies close to a busy road that is already congested at peak times. The provision of an additional 215 parking spaces is estimated to increase traffic by 2000 vehicles per day.
This Petition to the County Council must be submitted by 19 March 2010.
Presdales school have made it mandatory to wear the hideous and impractical school coat.
We now have regular coat checks and letters are sent home if you cannot produce a regulation school coat.
At a ridiculous £51.00 for the smallest size you can understand why people are reluctant to buy them !
They also expect you to wear them out side of school, another ridiculous assumption.
