According to Kevin James himself, the City Council's Public Safety Committee will hold a hearing on Zine's watered-down version of Jamiel's Law at 9:00 a.m. on Monday, October 27, 2008, in Room 1010 of City Hall, 200 North Spring Street, Los Angeles 90012. The Shaws plan to attend, and so do I. I know it's a work day, but I hope you can squeeze this one in.
Speaking of Jamiel's Law, do NOT throw away those signatures. Strictly speaking, there is no deadline to collect the necessary signatures. Rather, we can file the petitions when we have collected 74,000 in the previous 120 days. Only signatures older than 120 days expire. The rest are still good.
Speaking of signatures, beginning on November 7, 2008, I'd like to get your autograph on the petition to put my name on the ballot for the election on March 3, 2008. Happily, we only need 1,000 signatures for that. We plan to have locations around town where you can sign and pick up yard signs, bumper stickers, buttons and other materials to spread the word.
In the meantime, let's show City Council and the Shaw family that we haven't forgotten, and we won't stop fighting until we win.
See you Monday.
