Citizens of Victoria Texas for Clean Indoor Air sign now

We the undersigned, support a clean air ordinance. We applaud Victoria City Council on your open minded leadership on the clear air issue. The so called government we read about is the public's/patron's input and awareness of second-hand smoke danger. We have heard a lot of support wanting an clean air ordinance. But the Council will hear more of the negative attitudes. These individuals are creating a fear factor, unwilling to compromise behavior and using anger to persuade the Council to avoid a decision. A select few who only want to "have a place to smoke and drink coffee" is showing evidence of me first screw everybody else. This behavior is what brought the issue up initially. Council we make a motion to implement an ordinance. To sit back and listen to tactics of fear, the unproven, anger, and threats it will shut down businesses is another plight of negative feedback to the patrons and council. Council use your disciplined management skills you behold to establish what is the best healthy lifestyle choice for all citizens and guests. Sure this is an emotional issue. But to do nothing is horribly-horribly irresponsible and a negative social threat to all citizens. We all follow new laws and regulations. Most are healthy lifestyle behavior changes. Here is a quick education on smoking bans. There are currently 7 states with entire indoor public bans; Rhode Island, California, Connecticut, Delaware, Maine, Massachusetts and New York. Huge revenue making events still occur. Sure there are some exemptions. Here in Texas some of the cities with an ordinance are; Corpus Christi, El Paso, Waco, San Antonio, Austin and Houston. Little League, VISD, YMCA and soccer events don't even allow tobacco at their events. Most events are outdoors! You know we really feel for the kids who work in tobacco smoke for 8-10 hrs a day. We are willing to sign a petition for a smoke free meal. Council this is where you can step in. Keep it simple. No business can say they will lose money if even the competition is using the same ordinance. Period. No business can have the advantage now and the best meal, service, price and environment gets the best sales. In closing, we motion for a clean air ordinance. But to do nothing will be a negative stinky smoky stigma this beautiful city will have to endure. Council we know you will make the best educated decision that will benefit all citizens concerning public health.
