Polly Perry started this petition to Mayor Dee Margo and

I need your help. My swimmers need your help. ALL the competitive swimmers in El Paso need your help. I know and understand where we are and the seriousness of it. I also know that our current mayor is fighting to keep EVERYTHING open , except the pools. I know that Judge Samaniego has ordered everything shut down except high school and college athletics. He has left that up to the districts. It is my understanding that football and volleyball will resume next week. Cross country is competing at Regionals soon. I support that and I want all of those athletes to be able to compete. But our sport will get left out if we don’t get the pools open now. We can’t wait any longer because the rest of Texas has never stopped. Our athletes can’t just go outside and practice like runners can. They can weight lift and run and do all that but nothing replaces pool time. When we were swimming for 1 month we had strict protocols that worked. We had no Covid cases, thank goodness. I feel strongly that shutting the pools was a budget decision and not a Covid decision. Why else can questionable businesses stay open, but not pools that will only be for competitive swimmers in a strictly controlled atmosphere. Please consider signing this petition and sharing with your friends.This is not a Franklin issue. This is not a Westside issue. This is an El Paso issue. The swimmers in these pictures appreciate it and swimmers all over El Paso appreciate it.
