Save Upper Darby Arts Needs Your John Hancock!

Save Upper Darby Arts needs your John Hancock.  What? Who? John Hancock, the president of the Continental Congress is well known for his famous signature. And while your signature on the petition to Save Upper Darby Arts may not be quite as flamboyent (or quite as risky, after all, Hancock and the other signers could have been hung for treason for signing!) it is as important to the future of education in the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania.

Why sign now? Because the petition is going to Harrisburg to present our case and needs as many signatures as possible. There is strength in numbers.  Strength is our willingness to speak up. 

Even if you do not have children in band, chorus, concert band, art classes or who love their gym class, you do have a vested interest in telling Harrisburg you want educated citizens to help run our state. You want children with a well rounded education. Who know more than just reading, writing and 'rithmatic. You want them to have knowledge that comes from cultural pursuits. And even if you don't live in Pennsylvania it's important to let our leaders know just how important education is to you, the voter.

In an effort to encourage all citizens to sign the petition and contact their legislators and the governor, here is the link to where you need to put your own "john hancock" (although yours does not need to be quite a prominent as his was!

According to the petition, a copy of this petition will go to:

  • The Governor of PA
  • The PA State Senate
  • The PA State House
  • Governor of the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania (Thomas Corbett)
  • State Senator - 26th District (Edwin Erickson)
  • State Representative - 164th District (Margo Davidson)
  • State Representative - 163rd District (Nicholas Miccozzie)
