It would be awesome if it got up over 500 before I print it off tonight!!! In just a day and a half!!!!!!! Imagine what kind of public support that would demonstrate!!
Keep encouraging people to sign even after today. We need all the help we can get.
I just e-mailed everyone I know in a mass mail out, even non-decorators- who will support it!
OK, I will go through my email address book and see if I can get some more.
Let me send out another "reminder" LOL!!!!
It's at 404 now, and I've just sent out another reminder to those in my addy book whose signatures are not on there yet.
You might get 500 by tonight!
I just sent out another Facebook bulletin! I've gotten a lot of responses in support, so that is definitely a good sign!
Keep pushing guys!
Just signed mine, and it's at 414
431....YAY! My brother and BFF FINALLY signed!
I got a bunch of signatures on there since I sent out requests last night. This is so exciting. I'm praying we can make a difference.
Is it possible once you have signed the petition to go back in and write a comment in the comment section
I don't think so... but you could have someone else sign it and write your comment
Looks like we're going to get 450+ by the time I print it out and take it in! That is amazing and awesome. When I started the petition, I told DH, "I'm not taking it in if I can't get 100, it will just look silly." Wow, were my expectations exceeded!
It's official, Texas Cottage Food Law.com is up and running! There is even a very rudimentary discussion forum. That is where I'm going to try to move most of this effort (at least my part of it). I will be posting there tomorrow after my meeting.
p.s. I baked the Senator and his staff a cake. What kind of cake lady would I be if I didn't?
Great idea Kelley! Good luck tomorrow...
I'm on board with this in a big way!
So keep me posted and let me know what I need to do to make it happen.
You may PM if you wish.
Ditto, about being on board. I am in Dallas, and will happily be supportive from the North.
Reach out if there is something else that I can do to help.
I signed it and forwarded it to others to sign as well.
Awesome! You ROCK! If ya need any support from the West....Give a holler!
Kelley - God bless you today in your appt. in Austin!!!! If you are traveling , have a safe trip, I really appreciate that you take the time and effort to do all this on behalf of all of us. Regardless of the results, you are a true leader and a very caring person.
Kelley, I am rooting for you (and all of us) from DFW! If you need ANYTHING at all don't hesitate to PM me!
Good Luck Kelley!!!
can I still add my signature? I'll keep your meeting in my prayers!
Sorry, I just found the link for the petition. I hope it's not to late, I'm sending it out to everyone I know.
Good Luck Kelly! Let us now if there is anything else we can do for you!
Sending good luck vibes from El Paso! Don't know what the petition was at when you printed it out, but it's at 508 now!
Wow, it is amazing how many of us want this to happen!! I am sending out good vibes from the Texas panhandle!!! <<<good luck>>>
Now when do you want us to encase Austin in everything cake, fondant and gum paste.
I will need some lead time.
I've been told my truffles have been the straw in a few situations.
As an idea- I created links to the petition page and the homepage in my email signature line. That way it goes out each time I send an email!
I signed as #562. I hope all goes well!
I am so glad to see this post. Alas I am a foreigner (Legal) living in the great state of Texas so I cannot write to the state rep. I also love to bake and my community of fellow expats want cakes that remind them of their home countries although they love the cakes in Texas too. They REALLY do! However it would be nice to be able to legally serve that community with cakes that remind them of their home countries. One of the reasons that I came to this lovely country is OPPORTUNITY. Opportunity to work hard and be rewarded. So I can only hope and pray for all the lovely ladies taking time out of their lives to contact their state reps about this.
Thank you all. It is greatly appreciated.
Good luck today!!! This would be AWESOME for all of us!!!
Good Luck Kelly!! Our thoughts and prayers are with you today!!!
