So says Dallas Progress’ Michael Davis on his blog, regarding the protracted signature examination process that eventually rewarded TrinityVote’s efforts. Davis, part of the TrinityVote team, asks one very simple, very relevant question: “What’s the problem with making sure that the signatures are OK?”
As someone who has dealt with the city secretary’s office in the recent past on a very similar issue, I have to agree. Watkins and her team have a difficult job, made no easier by people’s impatience and (more directly) their uniformly awful penmanship. Seriously people. I at least have an excuse: My parents raised a lefty to be righthanded.
