Circulators: download the PDF file "Recall Manual" for citizens from GAB @ wisconsin.gov and print out masters for copying recall petition forms. You can fill these out personally all by yourself because you have a brain larger than a poppyseed. 

Do not wait to be "coordinated". This is a democratic party codeword for "delay". Remember these are the same dudes who, by their timidity and shortsightedness, ruined our best candidates in November of 2010! 

The Recall Petition Registration that was filed with the GAB is a blanket document covering all such efforts in each disrict. There is NOT a specific place on the Recall Manual circulator's form for entering the name and address of the individual or group who filed the petition registration application. Therefore, any citizen can use the GAB's version of the circulator form without referral to any individual, organization or "committee". You do not need to wait for some copies from some such "committee". 

You do not need to wait to be "coordinated". You do not need to stick to the crazy super-short hours that the "committees" suggest. If we stick only to these days and hours, we will never make it! 

Contact kentgen1@aol.com for info as to where to return your filled in circulator's signature petition forms or else return them to the GAB by registered mail after making copies. Fill out the bottom of each form only AFTER you get all 10 signatures. Careful not to submit copies. 

Ask signers to pledge to sign against rotten peanut Goobernator Snott Walker and Senator Snott Fitzgerald. They can seal their pledge by adding their phone number on the address line of the petition form. When you keep a copy of this form, it serves as a record of such pledges. Marked clearly as a "copy", forward it to a committee as per the email address given above. Do this so they can keep a pledge record and an accurate count.

Of course, you can get recall petition forms from the "committee". They are neatly prnited out, but I think they could do a better job describing just who is to be recalled (and WHY). The reason for recall needs to be stated, not because it is a legal requirement (it isn't) but because petition signers will feel better about singing a petition that is filed out more completely. But, what do I know? I am not a politician or a political "groupie". Thank God.

Use Google Earth, downloadable for free, to scout potential circulator stations. Zoom in on shopping malls, big-box stores, government buildings, churches, et cetera. Recognize them partly by their jam packed closely spaced cars in parking lots and by their layouts. Shrewdly placed circulator stations will draw lines of people ready to sign. Make big signs visible at 300 feet or more. Set up folding tables and chairs. Make yourself comfortable. Don't break your back. You will need to come back again and again. Circulate in malls and big box stores until you get kicked out, which may be never because many mall and store managers sympathize with us. Otherwise, get permission to circulate on the premises. If you cannot get permission, use nearby public property. Use Google Earth to scope-out these positions. The aprons of driveways are public property, by the way.

On your own, you needn't observe the abruptly short hours that "committees" use to organize platoons of circulatiors. You can circulate any day, any hours. Be careful of any community anti-solicitation ordinances if you circulate door-to-door. Some communities require solicitors to get a permit.
