Petitions Delivered to GA Gov— Now We Wait…

More than 2000 people have signed your petition on the Change.org platform. Scott, Randy, SueZann delivered the first batch of your petition signatures.

This afternoon several of us met with a representative of Georgia Governor Brian Kemp’s office. We had a lengthy conversation — we felt genuinely heard.

I wanted to let you know that the Georgia Board of Pardon’s and Paroles moved it’s hearing to this (Weds) afternoon and announced that it does not expect to issue its recommendation until Thursday after 1pm. That is either hopeful, or extremely cruel to Marion and the family.

I also sent a photo of the 3 of us who had the meeting (Randy Gardner of Utah, SueZann​ Bosler of Florida, and myself from New York) to Mary Catherine Johnson — the woman who runs the death row hospitality house near the Georgia death row. She just happened to be with Marion Wilson’s family at that exact time, and they happened to be on the phone with Marion. She told them about your petitions, and they are all so incredibly touched and moved by what you are doing, and what people all over the world are doing to save his life.
