Mobile Citizens for Fair Government stands with keeping the Supermajority Vote on the Mobile City Council. A Supermajority Vote ensures that the needs of citizens in all seven (7) districts of the City of Mobile are considered when City Council members vote on issues. The vote includes members of the Mobile City Council who have the ability to vote down racial lines. The consequences of eliminating the Supermajority Vote requirement would mean the Council members who represent Districts 1, 2 and 3 would constantly be on the losing end. The late Senator Michael Figures recommended the Supermajority Vote for the Mobile City Council to provide all members, particularly minority members of the Council, a voice, not just a seat at the table. 4 plus 1 votes on the Council equals fairness for all Mobilians. Supermajority is fairness! Mobile County Sheriff Sam Cochran is circulating a petition to eliminate the minority voice on the City Council. If successful, Cochran's "Grow Mobile" initiative would undo the current voting process under the Zoghby Act, which has worked beautifully for three decades. If Cochran and Grow Mobile is successful, that would take away the minority voice and opportunity to vote. As residents of Mobile, you all have the power to maintain the Supermajority voting process on the City Council by signing this petition. This voting process would remain fair and insures minority participation.
