A call to action.
So many of you have asked us in emails, phone calls and on Facebook, if there was anything you could do to help us hold the City of Houston accountable to the results of last November's election.
We have asked you to stay tuned because the time to act would indeed be coming. And now it's that time.
On Tuesday, August 2nd at 1:00 pm at City Hall we will be calling on City Council to take a vote and turn off and take down the red light cameras.
We will hold a press conference at the City Hall Reflection Pond, then head inside
to City Council chambers to make our voice heard. It is our intention to ask every Council Member to publicly declare where they stand on this issue.
This is what we need from every one of you:
1. Call 311 and ask to be put on the speakers list for Sound Off on 08/02/11.
2. Appear at the Press Conference next Tuesday, August 2nd at 1:00 p.m.
3. Be prepared to tell the Mayor and City Council to honor the election.
This is the time to act to tell the city that your vote counts. We know you have responsibilities to work, to raise a family and to attend school. However, we also have the responsibility as citizens to hold our government accountable. A strong showing will send a clear message to your representative on City Council that it is the people who will rule, not the politicians.
Don't let this chance to stand up for your rights pass you by. Please join us and help us take down those cameras.
