Charter Amendment Canvass: Discovery Green

November 14, 2020 @ 10:30 am 2:00 pm

We’re collecting petition signatures to make our city more democratic. Come canvass with us this Saturday at Discovery Green!

We will be meeting near the Transier Bandstand, which is just Northeast of the Lamar Street and Avenida De Las Americas Southwest corner of the park. Look for our gray shirts! The training starts sharp at 10:30am and you may have difficulty parking, so arrive early!

For parking and transit options, check out Discovery Green’s website.

Email bryan.lavergne[at]houstondsa.org for any questions.

What’s this petition all about?

Under our current system, the Mayor has complete control over the City Council agenda. Even if all 16 Council Members want to vote on an issue at a Regular Session, only the Mayor has the power to let that happen. Fortunately, the people of Houston have the power to change this. Houston DSA is working with IAFF Local 341 on an amendment to the Houston City Charter that would allow any group of three Council Members to add items to the Council agenda. While mayors come and go, our City Charter stays the same. Let’s use our power to build a more democratic, more functional City of Houston where everyone’s voices are heard.
