Not really sure what to make of this.
Activists against Houston’s new restrictions on feeding the homeless plan to mail around 30,000 letters Friday to urge voters to sign a petition to trigger a charter amendment election in November.
Paul Kubosh, a defense lawyer who was also behind the referendum effort against the red-light camera tickets, will send the letters to more than 70,000 registered voters. Along with members of Ministers Against Crime and the Houston Area Pastor Council, Kubosh calls the controversial ordinance a “draconian anti-giving and sharing food law.”
Okay. Some percentage of those letters will be received and read. Some percentage of those who read the letters will be inclined to do something about it. You then have to actually get a petition in front of those people to sign, all by July 31. I’m not saying they can’t do it, but there’s a lot to be done between posting the letters and presenting the petitions for certification. We’ll see how it goes. Hair Balls has more.
