PLEASE NOTE: On Wednesday, Austin Mayor Steve Adler spoke at an event in Bastrop, along with three other area Mayors. Adler offered nothing concrete about his plan to deal with Austin’s affordability crisis driven by unbridled growth. Any hard questions about how to protect Bastrop and Caldwell counties’ affordability, not to mention the aquifer to their northeast that is under continual siege, were not allowed from the floor. Shameful. (Sponsors: United Way, Bank of America, Bluebonnet Electric, Cap Metro, Goodwill, ACC and Community Advancement Network).
Frankly, it’s a relief to get to the next stage of the battle where the gloves come off.
We have expended our funds to get to this point. Please donate, if you can.

PS SA Councilman Cris Medina did say he had been getting 100s of calls. Good for you, San Antonio…the “little people”, that is!
