Alabama -- Mobile Daytime Curfew to be Reintroduced Tomorrow

Dear HSLDA Members and Friends in Mobile:

We have been informed that Councilmember Fred Richardson Jr. intends
to reintroduce the original version of Mayor Sam Jones' proposed
curfew ordinance at the Mobile City Council's regular meeting tomorrow
at 10:30 a.m. As you may remember, an amended version of this curfew
ordinance was defeated http://www.hslda.org/elink.asp?id=12435
approximately two weeks ago on September 13, 2011.

Because the amended version of the proposed ordinance was defeated at
that time, the Mobile City Council never voted on the original version
of the proposed ordinance. For that reason, Councilmember Richardson
intends to reintroduce the original version of the proposed ordinance
for a vote on its own merits.

Unfortunately, the original version of the ordinance is significantly
worse than the amended version of the ordinance which was just
defeated two weeks ago. Some our concerns with the original version of
the ordinance have already been detailed in our 7/26/2011 e-lert
entitled "Alabama - Mobile Daytime Curfew Meeting Tonight."
http://www.hslda.org/elink.asp?id=12436 Among other things, the
original version of the proposed ordinance subjects some minors to the
daytime curfew who are not even required to be in school under
Alabama's compulsory attendance law. (Please see our 8/4/2011 e-lert
entitled "Alabama - Proposed Mobile Daytime Curfew Changed"
http://www.hslda.org/elink.asp?id=12437 for more information on some
of the differences between the original and amended versions of the
proposed curfew ordinance.)

While we have already defeated one daytime curfew proposal in Mobile,
it is important that you contact your city council members to let them
know that you also oppose the original version of the proposed daytime
curfew ordinance, if you have not already done so.

Action Requested:

1. Please contact the mayor and members of the Mobile City Council
and express your opposition to the proposed ordinance. The names and
contact information for the city council members
http://www.hslda.org/elink.asp?id=12438 are available online. The
mayor's contact information http://www.hslda.org/elink.asp?id=12439
can also be found online.

2. Attend the meeting of the city council tomorrow at 10:30 a.m. at
the Government Plaza Auditorium at 205 Government Street to
demonstrate your opposition to the proposed ordinance.

3. Forward this email to other homeschooling families who are not
members of HSLDA and ask them to take the same action.

-> How long are you in for?

Some families are facing what seems like a lifelong commitment to
homeschooling, with children at both ends of the spectrum -- some
graduating and some just reaching school age. If you're going to
be "in" for a while, consider a lifetime membership with HSLDA.
It's a good deal for families with more than 10 years of
homeschooling ahead.
