My name is Jenia Webb-Sizemore. I live in Leslie County, Ky. I am unofficially lobbying for a House Bill called "Romeo's Law."
Unofficially means I've taken this task upon myself. I have not been recruited by any elected politician. I am a pet owner and I have worked in the criminal law field for 18 years.
After seeing State Rep. Stan Lee on my local news being interviewed regarding his proposal of the bill and hearing very little about Romeo, I researched Romeo's story and could not believe what this poor puppy went through at the hands of his owner.
I am lobbying tirelessly everyway and anyway I can. My cry for help to you comes in the way of this: I need the people, the voters, the general public's help. I have my father-in-law, Leslie County Judge/Executive Jimmy Sizemore, several state representatives and state senators and my biggest win is Lt. Gov. Daniel Mongiardo, who is willing to bring his own lab, Gunner, right to the Senate floor and read my research and statistics on the future behavior of severe animal abusers and torturers.
I have never been involved in this type of process before and I am learning by the hour. Please understand, I am not a spokesperson for anything or any political party nor do I have intentions of ever being, but I am exercising my right as a U.S. citizen and voter, and being the voice that Romeo doesn't have and desperately needed the day his owner was severely beating and torturing him.
I am pleading to the public, people like me and you, to pressure the elected officials who represent us in Frankfort to fight for this HB145, Romeo's Law, because we are the ones who put them there.
You can help by calling (800) 372-7181, leave a message for (1) Chairman Kathy Stein, (2) the House Judiciary Committee and (3) Your local State Representative. Please tell them you are in 100 percent support of House Bill 145, Romeo's Law.
