PRLog - Apr. 1, 2012 - RENTON, Wash. -- Renton, Wash. - On 4/2/12 Monday 6pm PST in Renton, Wash. the volunteer group, Citizens for the Preservation of Renton's Cedar River Library, will rally at Renton City Hall. At 7pm PST the group will address Renton City Council at its meeting.

The volunteer group will rally and present the same night that Renton Mayor has threatened in his recommendation to the Council to reject the King County certified petition that intends to save the beloved Renton library at its current location over Cedar River and by Liberty Park. Beyond that, the petition group rallies for constitutional rights to freedom of speech and freedom to petition and has sought legal counsel. Ironically, on that same meeting’s agenda, the Council will issue a proclamation to make April 2012 volunteer month.

"The city has convinced themselves they don’t need to listen to the public, and even when we follow the rules we still won’t get what 15% of Renton voters have requested," Stuart Avery, group leader, said.

The group likens the landmark, Renton library at Cedar River and Liberty Park, as an icon similar to Pike Place Market given it's location in the city, yet with picturesque surroundings. The library remains the only one in the world built over a river.

The group invites concerned residents and citizens of all classes and creeds to rally at Renton City Hall and to speak to the council at the council meeting afterwards to urge the council to respect constitutional right to petition and civil right to address and participate in government.

ABOUT

The grassroots group made history by filing the first ever Initiative Petition in the Renton, Wash. that King County certified at 6,383 signatures. After a first petition attempt, King County invalidated 1,442 signatures from residents in Potential Annexation Areas (PAA) highlighting support from residents in surrounding areas potentially strategic to Renton. Thus, this story reaches beyond elected officials in Renton and appointed officials in King County Library System (KCLS).  Petitioners invite media to help officials to listen and raise awareness.
