Bastrop Runoff Voting Starts Monday!

The long awaited runoff for the Bastrop City Council, Place 3 is coming with Early Voting starting Monday, June 5th and Election Day on Saturday, June 17th. This is the first runoff election in the City of Bastrop’s history! We are supporting Lyle Nelson in this runoff. Read the rest of this entry »

Enjoy this Bastrop Update…get ready for the runoff!

We took some snippets of the swearing in ceremony of newly elected Bastrop Mayor Connie Schroeder and Council member Place 4 Bill Ennis. Schroeder was a class act and so was Ennis. We let Ennis know that even if we didn’t support him we have every intention of working with him, especially in light of his comments about open and ethical government.

See for yourselves – in these short clips. (Apologies for the lighting.)

The big news is that there was historic turnout in this election. We have the first runoff in Bastrop’s history taking place on Saturday, June 17 with early voting starting on June 5.

Though we are supporting Lyle Nelson against Lee Harle for the Place 3 council seat being vacated by Kay McAnally, we wish them both well… and McAnally a big thanks! We recommend you read this Bastrop Advertiser/Statesman piece about the runoff.

Today, Bastrop Advertiser columnist Debbie Moore wrote a very helpful and critical commentary about the video on the home page of the City of Bastrop and the actions of the Bastrop City Attorney, David Bragg. Moore also announced that the deadline to apply to serve on a city commission is May 23 as requested by Mayor Schroeder. Read Moore’s commentary here.

As usual, we have our hand out.

Yes, we still need lots of hands and donations for the runoff. Click on the hand to give.

More soon…after you do your homework with the contents of this message. Gracias, y’all!

Independently yours,

Welcome the New Bastrop Council!

Just a quick heads up that there’s an important Special Meeting called tomorrow night on the Bastrop City Council. The purpose of the meeting it to set the date of the runoff election for the Place 3 slot on the Council, between Lyle Nelson (whom we support) and Lee Harle, and to swear in the new Mayor, Connie Schroeder and Place 4 Council member, Bill Ennis.

It starts at 6:30 pm at Bastrop City Hall, 1311 Chestnut. Come on over and greet the new Mayor and Council! Agenda here.

Please note that though the agenda states that the Council is going to discuss the runoff election being held on June 6, this may not be the date. The date of June 10th seems to be the most supported date and is consistent with runoffs being held in San Antonio, as well as in a number of municipalities in Tarrant, Dallas, El Paso counties.

Hope to see you there!
