Dueling LA Marathon Petitions

This one is for the date change back to a Sunday. From their petition:

The Council is set to vote on a proposal to return the marathon to its traditional March date; in fact, one of the Council’s committees already has endorsed the change. But we need your help to ensure that the full Council votes to adopt the measure. Please sign our petition telling our elected officials that the race date matters and that you want to see the Los Angeles Marathon held on a Sunday in March. Then forward this note to friends, family members, and anyone else you can think of who may wish to join our effort.

As if the long race isn’t dramatic enough without political strife. Serious, does this ever happen in normal cities?
