Posted on Updated on

Note: Candidate for Comptroller John Clifton also serves as Queens Petitioning Coordinator for LPQC/LPNY’s 2014 petition drive. Here is his update on his upcoming petitioning appearances in the borough in the coming weeks:

My time has been extremely divided until now, but I am pleased to confirm a number of outdoor Queens events I (weather permitting) will be at, gathering signatures during the current petition drive. Other petitioners and LP members are invited to show up to get sigs with me, so that we act as moral support for each other. I will be there at the ‘best petitioning time’ specified.  Email me ahead of time, to smooth out issues over directions or meet-up points. Also contact me (the Queens coordinator, weekly about your approximate signature totals—we want to know how well we’re doing! All events are free.
You can turn in petition forms to me at these events, or to Mark Axinn by the end of each week. I will be at the August 9 LPQC meeting, and that can act as a turn in point as well. Most of the below are local street fairs, or city parks concert events (a good, leisurely setting, where most people aren’t rushing away, just get there 30-45 minutes before the concert starts for best results).
