"Hopefully if enough towns start passing these somebody will take action," Brattleboro Town Representative Dora Bouboulis told the Burlington Free Press. "It's about starting a movement and helping them have the courage to act."

According to ImpeachPAC President Bob Fertik, "Congress and the national media dismiss the majority of Americans who support impeachment as powerless and irrelevant. But ordinary Americans refuse to remain powerless, and they are using the basic tools of Democracy - like Town Hall Meetings and local resolutions - to begin impeachment from the bottom up. These local efforts have already persuaded several Members of Congress to support John Conyers' bill to investigate President Bush's impeachable offenses. We hope this movement will ultimately persuade all 435 Members of Congress to perform their Constitutional duty to hold President Bush accountable for his innumerable High Crimes."
