Reporter Ashley Ford gave the annexation reform movement a tremendous boost today with her update on the petition drive story. Her article ran today in the Waxahachie Daily Light and the Midlothian Mirror. Ford has been covering the project since its launch in February.
Petitioners are excited to see area media giving such detailed and helpful coverage to this fight for basic citizens' rights.
Significantly, Ford's article today suggests that we have the full support of at least one county commissioner, potentially easing our way through the next hurdle in this multi-stage process.
This news will certainly give all those hot, sweaty, and dog-tired block-walkers and petition table workers a reason to smile...and have hope.
