Smoking Ban on Ballot in May?
That's the word around Austin. Political consultant and former state Representative Glen Maxey, a great guy and a great Democrat, is leading the effort to collect the signatures neccesary to get the initiative on the ballot. Assuming they get the needed signatures, we will have quite a May election shaping up. With a t ough election between Gregg Knauppe, Mandy Dealey, Jennifer Kim and, the front-runner, Margot Clarke (who lost in '03 to Brewster McCracken in a run-off), it will be a great diversion before '06 primary rumors get in high motion. I for one can't wait.
Also, for all you Austinites out there, protest the coronation of King George II by going to the Capitol at 4pm for a, well, a protest. I'll be the one with a sign.
