Petition for an election to dissolve the Somervell County Hospital District - Round 2

Update Feb. 26, 2014

Round 1
Today, the Somervell County Hospital District declined our petition because 213 people did not have a city listed with their address. Not because those people were not registered, they were, but because they did not have a city on their address so the hospital district did not allow that registered voters signature to be valid. The hospital district board members are using this as an excuse not to have an election but they don't need a petition to call an election, they have the authority to do so without a petition, the petition just forces the issue as per the Texas Health and Safety Code: http://www.statutes.legis.state.tx.us/Docs/HS/htm/HS.286.htm#286.102

 

Sec. 286.102. DISSOLUTION. (a) A district may be dissolved as provided by this section.

(b) The board may order an election on the question of dissolving the district and disposing of the district's assets and obligations. The board shall order an election if the board receives a petition requesting an election that is signed by a number of residents of the district equal to at least 15 percent of the registered voters in the district.

Don't let them lie and say they 'can't' call an election, yes they can, the law says they MAY do so if they so choose! The board members that are choosing to not have an election are:

  • Larry Shaw

Can people recall the Board Members?  If so, that would be my focus!  Get rid of those bums!

Justice and pstern, has anyone contacted the AG's office to see if there are any wrongdoings that can be proven? Ford and any board members should be held accountable. Salon has all the evidence on hand from what I have followed.

There's only one incorporated town in Somervell County with street addresses.  Plus the voter registration number WAS on the petition. And Somervell county printed in blank .

Everyone has readily signed again!  Also they have taken me over to their neighbor/friends that were missed last time!  It's been great and refreshing to see people working together for a purpose!  People are really taking this seriously!  They are also double checking the blanks on entire sheet!  GREAT!  I'm proud now!  Word has really gotten around.

Why not start a class action lawsuit against the Hospital Board?  Even if you don't win you can get more publicity against the Hospital District and the Board to help with your petition.

Just a thought.
