I know my dad would be proud


The following article is an essay from Robin Warren of the Youths’ Equine Alliance.

Many of you know that I lost my father when I was 4 years old. I think of him every day but especially today. I think he would be especially proud of me this week and I hope you are too!

I stopped by the Governor’s office and I was shocked to find that he has burro-art in front of his Las Vegas office. The receptionist was very nice and she reminded me to also send the request for a “Burro Day” proclamation online and also to request an audience with Gov. Brian Sandoval. I hope to hear back from his office soon.

Also, I couldn’t believe it myself how big of a deal it was to finally file the Wild Horse and Burro Initiative with the Secretary of State Ross Miller. This is what I have been working towards since I was 9 years old – an official petition! My goal is 110,000 signatures and then the petition will appear on Nevada’s 2016 ballot!

I cannot do this without your help. Time is of the essence. To meet my goal I need to collect almost 1000 signatures a day and I have to do it the old-fashioned way – in ink and in-person, by registered Nevada voters.

Thank you for your help. If you are over 18, live in Nevada, and you can help collect signatures please contact us. If you don’t live in Nevada and you still want to show your support please give today.
