The Ethics Commission has extended the deadline given to Dan Wolf to resign to September 19th. Between now and then there are hopes for negotiations that will make changes that may affect Wolf others like him.
Therefore organizers have cancelled the rally for tomorrow.
“We do not have a victory for those of us who think the Commission’s ruling is wrong,” said rally organizer Sue Truitt in an email to participants, “but we do have the beginning of what could be a sensible solution. Now is not the time for more heat; let us pray that cool heads prevail.”
In an email supporters, here“Dan Wolf, explains what will happen between now and September 19.
Truitt gives credit to the many people who spoke out, “I honestly believe that the many letters to the Commission, the newspaper stories and editorials, and the sharp criticism of just plain folks like us have been a strong factor in turning a dispute into a negotiation.”
We don’t know what the outcome will be.
“But keep my email and my phone number handy. I’m keeping yours. Who knows what challenges are ahead!” added Truitt. “I’ve heard from so many people who care about our voting rights and about good government. (Yes, we filled the buses!) But freedom doesn’t come free. We have to continue to work for it.”
