That's too funny... that littlebittym said he represents 100% of the city and is taking action for the other 95%.

But since we're talking about percentages, let's delve a little deeper:

Fact- Only 805 people voted in the city council race at the last municipal election. There are 3,990 registered voters- so only 20% of registered voters participate in Floresville municipal elections.

Fact- According to the 2010 census, there are only 4,671 people over the age of 18 who live in Floresville.

Fact- Although the petition garnered TWICE the minimum required votes (10% of the registered voters and a full 9% of all adults in the city), he actually managed to get 50% of the actual number of voters who participate. 50%!!!!! That means that half of the people who care enough to have a vested interest in the City WANT to see this go to the ballot box! That's a huge number of voters!

How can littlebittym ignore the wishes of 50% of all of the voters in the city? And by ignoring the will of the elctorate (not to mention the law), how can he possibly believe that he is, in fact, representing 95% of the city?

And to go even further, he could only garner the support of 68% of the vote in the last election- and he was the only one on the ballot?

Littlebittym, you are truly delusional. You don't represent 100%, or 95%, or even 75% of the city; the numbers simply do not support this claim. But then again, you aren't very good with numbers unless they're written with a crayon in a spiral. Perhaps there is an automatic removal from office if you are diagnosed properly by a medical professional.

Rene- you'd better be looking at those numbers as well. HALF the voters don't like what you're doing already- and they DO come to the ballot box. You'd be well advised not to step on your tongue any further. Of course, we all know that you've shared more than one thing with the littlem, don't we?


Jim- I don't think the message should be 10% of all registered voters signed the petition. The real message is that 50% of the VOTERS want to see the sports complex on the ballot. Let's see how the now-quiet PR firm can negate those numbers....
