Maryland Petition Campaign To Preserve Traditional Marriage Gathers Speed

"Please help Maryland keep Traditional Marriage between a man and a woman. Citizens must sign a petition to get a ballot referendum," reads a letter from Eugene Delgaudio to Maryland church leaders.

The deadline for getting petitions signed in Maryland is on May 31st. That is the first deadline . On that date, the Maryland Marriage Alliance needs 18,000 signatures.

After that, the final deadline is June 30th.

At that time, the Maryland Marriage Alliance will need 50,000 signatures. In a letter to hundreds of church leaders in Maryland, Public Advocate President Eugene Delgaudio says "I hope you agree that Maryland's Citizens should decide in November to defend traditional values.

Hundreds of volunteers are working in response to our plea and are working to collect signed petitions.

But in order to do this, citizens have to first get ballot initiative status for preserving traditional marriage".

Public Advocate is hopeful enough petitions can be collected and is encouraging churches, civic groups and private citizens to the Maryland Marriage Alliance website and to also get petitions signed at church, community centers and door to door.
