In the face of the long term denial and interference by the Railroad Commission, there is finally proof that fracking is contaminating our groundwater. Our keynote speaker tomorrow night, former Mayor and League Board Member Calvin Tillman, will explain this to you — and read this!
We really hope to see you tomorrow night from 6 to 8 pm at the American Legion Hall in Bastrop, next to Bastrop State Park. Details here. (Read on even if you can’t make it).
A few days ago, we told you about this outrageous shell game that Hays County officials are playing with private water profiteers (Forestar Real Estate Group) with public money and how they’re messing with rural Texans who live east of the IH-35 growth corridor.
Today we are telling you that this isn’t a rural problem. It is a rural, urban and surburban problem. (The Trans-Texas Corridor wasn’t just a rural problem either. But it took us years to build a unified rural-urban revolt.)
We don’t have that much time now. We need to be ready for the 2015 legislative session with a full blown movement for local control that unites citizens across the state and across party lines.
Come tomororow night to learn more about what how we can do this, but NOT without YOU!
If you can’t get here, watch for a report next week and get ready to bring us to your community.
