Somervell County Hospital District Lawyer: Board can call an election on its own without a petition

In response to my request yesterday to the attorney for the Hospital District for a clarification on the board's ability to call a dissolution election and what he told them, I received a response this morning from the attorney:

Mr. Harper,  I do not recall being asked if the Board could call an election without a Petition.  My recollection is that the entire discussion of the meeting was on the issue of the Petition and the adequacy of the Petition.  My responses to the Boards questions were all related directly to the Petition and the Board's options on the Petition.

 You are correct that the Board may call an election on its own, at any time consistent with the Election Code, without a Petition, if it so chooses. 

 As I do not want there to be any mis-understanding of this issue I will communicate to the Board both your concern and my response.  Thank you. Kevin Reed

  

Kevin A. Reed
Attorney
5608 Parkcrest Drive, Suite 200
Austin, Texas 78731
512.660.5960 main
512.660.5962 direct
512.660.5979 fax

 

So I don't know where the board members believe they cannot call an election, their own attorney says they can. Seems more like a lack of respect for the registered voters in my opinion.

900+ signatures in a county that has approximately 5000 residents-----20 percent of every man, woman, and child was represented by the petition. An overwhelming number!  It really spoke volumes at a deafening decibel level. Just no one was listening!
