NO JOY IN MUDVILLE TONIGHT
As you may have heard already Judge Stern did not grant our request for an injunction. To quote John Case “This is only round one in a fifteen round fight.” This injunction request is not our only egg in the basket and there are several legal avenues that we will be pursuing ardently. Most urgently is our need to get at least 6500 signatures by Monday July 1.
We have 4000 signatures in hand with over 90 petitions outstanding. If 90 petitions had only 20 signatures on each one then that would be 1800 signatures and put us over the top. To have 8000 signatures would be even better to make up for those signatures that are not valid. AND TO THINK HOW FAR WE HAVE COME IN 30 DAYS. WE CAN DO THIS.
Please join us for this last big push.

Thank you to everyone for all your hard work and dedication to saving Hentzell Park Natural Area, and continuing on with the fight.
In the bigger scheme there are other natural spaces and open areas ready and ripe for the developers and Mayor Hancock to divvy up. We can’t stop now, nor can we accept this as our reality.
We expect to have two news releases next week documenting our next steps in the legal process.
