Help Bring Amazon's 2nd Headquarters to Connecticut!
On September 7th, 2017, Amazon announced plans to open a second company headquarters in North America, known as Amazon HQ2. October 19th, 2017, was the due date for submissions. Connecticut submitted four separate proposals: one on behalf of the State with either Stamford or Hartford as options, one from Danbury, one from Waterbury and a joint bid from Bridgeport and New Haven. Amazon will make a decision in early 2018.
This represents a tremendous opportunity for Connecticut. Other cities, states and provinces have found creative ways to get Amazon's attention. None of them have tried to show support directly from the public - which is the purpose of this petition. It represents a "voice of the customer." From now until the end of the year, while Amazon deliberates and makes a decision, citizens from the Nutmeg State can proudly show their support by getting involved and showing Amazon how passionate and serious we are about hosting their second headquarters!
Ways to help out:
1. Sign the petition
2. Forward to others to help grow the list and hopefully get the attention of Amazon
3. Use the power of social media to spread the message... this was not a typical way for a company to announce the search for a second headquarters, so lets not be typical in showing our support.
4. Be Positive!
