KUBOSH BROTHERS, AND MINISTERS JOIN PUBLIC VOTER PETITION DRIVE
TO PROTECT FOOD SHARING
OVER 70,000 HOUSTON VOTERS REACHED BY MAIL OUT
Today the Kubosh Brothers Mike, Randy and Paul along with Pastor Jefferson of the Ministers against crime and Pastor Welch with the Houston Pastors Counsel are joining other Citizens in their voter Petition Drive. Houston’s draconian anti-giving and sharing food law is creating a crisis of hunger among the less fortunate and the citizens have countered with a voter petition drive to put the issue to the People on the November election ballot as a Charter Amendment exactly like the current Charter Amendment banning Red Light Cameras.
On Friday, June 15th, 2012 @ 10:00 a.m. a van containing 30,000 letters addressed to over 70,000 registered City of Houston voters will be sent out to the clients of attorney Paul Kubosh. These letters are being mailed to the same people who received and returned in large numbers the Red Light Camera Petition.
"Groups are reporting a massive decline in charitable giving and sharing of food with the homeless downtown even though the law doesn’t take effect until July 1, 2012.” said Nick Cooper of Food-Not-Bombs.
As expected the City’s passing of the law criminalizing sharing food with the less fortunate has scared away many Good Samaritans who cannot afford the massive $2000 per day fines the City is using to crush charitable giving--fines the City said were to be only $500 per day (as reported in the Houston Chronicle) to gain Councilmember approval.
“Christianity and other religions teach to give when the Sprit moves you and this is not possible with the City $2000 criminal fines against Good Samaritans,”
Said civil rights lawyer Randall Kallinen, “This law clearly violates Texas’ law regarding religious freedom.”
The Kubosh Brothers, Pastor Jefferson, and Pastor Welch, food sharers and others concerned for keeping Houston free to give and share food will have a press conference launching this next step in the petition drive.
