THIS EVENT IS CANCELED DUE TO WEATHER. Read more here.
You’ll be impressed with the agenda and speakers, Remember the Ogallala, Remember Vista Ridge!
But really it’s YOU that we most need to be there to strategize and plan.
Reserve a free seat now right here, then invite others.
This is the first annual meeting of the League of Independent Voters of Texas. If you like checking your brain outside the polling booth and voting straight ticket, please don’t come. 🙂
Sure, there are still some good people in both parties but look – to put it bluntly – BOTH parties, and the big business lobbies, are turning this state into a virtual kleptocracy.
Sound too harsh? What do you call it when government and business join together to steal what is clearly not theirs and leave the citizenry without the resources upon which their lives depend?
Friends, this is what is happening to our water, our land and our rights to local control.
We have been given a big DUE NOTICE by:
Vista Ridge — the largest water grab in Texas history, pushed by both Ds and Rs.
Lawsuits and backroom deals by water profiteers, while many officials look the other way.
The oil and gas industry and their bedmates — the Texas Railroad Commission — boldly teaming up to overturn local control in Denton and…who knows where next.
The good news is that despite all their money and power, ordinary Texans have these guys just a tad worried. Voters are not finished yet, with runoffs for City Council (District 2, San Antonio) and 8 out of 11 seats in Austin up for grabs in typically low turnout runoffs on Dec. 9 and 16, respectively.
Do you agree that WE — rural and urban Texans — must come together outside the parties — to make our own plans?
Then, what are you waiting for?
Is it not time to stand together and to Remember the Ogallala, Remember Vista Ridge?
PS For those of you who don’t remember, fifty years ago one of the world’s largest aquifers, the Ogallala, was called “drought proof”. In some parts of West Texas today, the Ogallala has maybe 15 years left.
