This event: “Building Cross-Partisan Coalitions” is the place to be if you’re concerned about water, land and your political rights.
Also, if you’re near enough to volunteer, join us THIS coming Saturday, September 7, 4 pm, at the Bastrop Library, 1100 Church Street — map here. We’ll be discussing the convention and how you can help before or during this first-ever Independent Texans’ convention.
Read our report on what happened yesterday at the Hays County Commissioners Court. They’re joining up with Forestar Real Estate to take their neighbors’ water without their consent and with little understanding: http://www.indytexans.com/2013/09/04/hays-county-commission-in-cahoots-with-forestar/
Many thanks to the residents of Hays County who are beginning to urge the Hays County Commissioners to stay out of the Lost Pines battle with Forestar (not to mention EndOp). We hope to see some of these good friends at the Convention.
Watch for our white paper on Proposition 6 — the “Water Heist Amendment” — on the statewide ballot this November. It will be a big topic at the convention.
Did we ask you to REGISTER NOW for the convention or forever hold your peace! 🙂 Click here to to register: www.indytexans.com/convention/registration
