    I need info on how to start a petition, one here in Pennsylvania, and one for West Virgina. Can anyone help me? There is a ride to benefit Aidan Jack seeger foundation in Morgantown, WV on Oct 26 and thought I could get something started before then. The website for the ride is aidansride.webs.com
