Yesterday’s Statesman article entitled, “City Attorney Says CodeNEXT Petition is invalid”, brought us to this announcement: Dumb and Dumber. We stand by our statement that the Austin powers that be are trying to pull off a dumb move to deny you your right to vote on CodeNEXT.

There is a remedy to Dumb and Dumber. Keep reading.

Also yesterday, a second warning letter was sent by our attorney and open government expert, Bill Aleshire, to the City Attorney, City Manager and Library Director. The letter urges that the city discontinue interference with petitioners at public library locations.

We’re not dumb and dumber — we have a remedy!

Go forth and multiply. Help us gather 2500 signatures by this coming Thursday, March 15th.

We have continued needs to cover the costs of petitioning and processing. Please contribute, however small here.

Button to Donate for IndyAustin's CodeNEXT petition drive

Funds are needed to pay for the costs of petitioning.

Join us at either of these events tomorrow, Saturday, March 10th:

  • Barton Springs Reopening Splash: 1 to 5 pm, please bring signed petitions to Barton Springs – either entrance – OR send your friends to come sign the petition. (Click here for the event page you can share).
  • Volunteer outside your favorite library. Remember, the most that will happen is a library security guard will ask you to move to the outer perimeter sidewalk or to leave. If you refuse to leave, they will issue you a warning that expires in 24 hours. We are also documenting this interference in case we do have to file suit.

Call or text 512.657.2089 or send us an email to contact@IndyAustin.org. Thank you!
