Due to recent repetitive vandalism of the doors and stalls of many of the public bathrooms in Winnie, Texas, commissioner Jimmy Gore has decided that these VERY public restroom facilities will simply no longer have doors of any kind, as they are tired of replacing them.

Not only is this completely illogical, it's not the way to go about solving this issue, and it's going to end up causing more issues than it solves in the long run. When there is an issue with vandalism, the solution is not to go removing basic public services from the community. The solution is to increase security in the affected areas until the vandalism is under control, or is no longer an issue. 

The back-up plan is no better. They plan to hang TEMPORARY CURTAINS instead of stall and bathroom doors on these very public bathrooms at the baseball park. But these would be temporary, and would only be hung when organized events are taking place at the park. Additionally, I have only heard that the curtains will be hung at the baseball park, and there have been no mention of plans for the other areas where this is an issue. Curtains make no sense for privacy, are even easier to vandalize and ruin than doors, and this is not a permanent solution to the issue.

Upon calling  the commissioners office to discuss this with Jimmy Gore, his representative very rudely informed me that "If [the people] want doors, maybe they shouldn't vandalize them over and over again." So the official statement is that  they are blaming the public for the issue and taking no responsibility in actually finding a solution. I was also told that "the taxpayers probably didn't want to pay to have them replaced over and over again," to which I replied that there were plenty of angry taxpayers online who would love to have a discussion with them about this issue.

If you are as concerned about this blatant attempt to cut costs at the expense of Winnie's citizens, sign this petition to tell Jimmy Gore and the Chambers County Commissioners office that WE DEMAND SOLID AND PERMANENT DOORS ON OUR PUBLIC BATHROOMS, STALLS, AND OTHER PRIVATE PUBLIC SPACES (such as dressing rooms). And we suggest increased security in the areas where the vandalism is most persistent, to help reach a more permanent solution to the issue!
