UD Track Update - Please Sign the Petition!

I got this email today and figured I'd post it with the hope of getting a few more signatures before the petition gets submitted to the legislature.


Dear Sam Mackenzie,

Thank you for your continued support of HB 126.

As we have followed the statements from Rep. Schwartzkopf, it has become apparent that he is delaying any hearing on the bill while the University of Delaware is having secret meetings with union leaders and/or construction companies.

This is another attempt by the University of Delaware to exploit the weakness of the current FOIA law by claiming that successful secret meetings will make the bill unnecessary and therefore allow them to continue to evade openness.

I would like to send our petition by the end of this week to see if it will help create momentum toward a hearing.

If you know of anyone else who might sign the petition, please contact them and share the link with them.
