Protestors to Topeka’s smoking ban extend petition contest

Topeka — Protesters to Topeka’s city wide smoking ban are extending their petition drive competition to Tuesday.

Topekans against the ban is the organization fighting the smoking-ban.

It started a contest last Wednesday with prizes for whoever gets the most signatures.

The contest was scheduled to end today, but organizers extended it to allow more time for protesters to collect signatures.

The prizes include a $50 cash prize, two free tickets to a Topeka Roadrunners hockey game and a free disc jockey service.

“People think that we were just going to die away and go away on this,” organizer Andrew Gray said. “Since we have been focused on property rights issues, people are still supporting it. They’re still signing it.”

The organization has more than 4,000 signatures.

To overturn the ban– it needs 5,700 by April.

Organizers say their next step is going door-to-door for signatures.
