Petitions take a big step forward.

Electrical petitions take a huge step forward
District Court, Sept 10th, 2:00 pm

Today at 4:00 pm, Power to Transform, Inc. filled a petition for a writ of Mandamus with the District court in Coleman, Texas.


Although this is a rather complex legal document, it boils down to this simple statement.


We the people are asking the judge to take a look at this matter, the fact that the city of Coleman has denied its citizens their democratic right to vote, and compel the city to follow the law (its own charter) and bring this matter to a popular vote.


This is what democracy is all about. People voting on issues that affect their life so deeply is what America was founded on!


We believe the arguments are very strong and compelling and therefore have a great deal of optimism that justice will prevail; allowing the voices of the people of Coleman to be heard.


The setting (court date) is set for September 10th, 2015 at 2:00 p.m. (everyone is welcome and encouraged to come.)  (Upstairs in the Coleman Courthouse)

So it will be held up in court for an eternity then?
