Recently the White House website created a petition feature, see [url removed, login to view] for a description.
I am looking for someone with public relations experience - including necessary contacts - to help me draft and successfully publicize (that means more than 5000 people need to join the petition within 30 days) a petition that requests President Obama task the Office of Legal Counsel, via the Attorney General, to issue its opinion on the interpretations of 3 civil service laws - 5 U.S.C. sections 1204(a)(3), 1214(e) and 2302(c). I contend these laws have been misinterpreted and misapplied for 33 years, thereby contributing to a battered federal civil service and a much diminished and more threatened America. See [url removed, login to view] for more details.
The ideal candidate should have previous experience in using social media - facebook, twitter, blogosphere, etc - to mobilize large numbers of people to join an online petitions for a public policy issue, such as improving whistleblower protection.
Candidates should submit a CV targeted for this assignment and an initial proposal (one page or so).
