When SAWS CEO, Robert “what-me-worry?” Puente, was asked about the possibility of an open meetings violation this week, he suggested that we — the folks living over the aquifer he plans to raid – might be living in a “cave”. (It’s on the last page of this article).
Also, take note on that same page of the $1.25 million SAWS is giving to a number of organizations to make themselves look like the great benevolent conservation organization that they are NOT. (We say to those organizations, good for you and take the money and run. But please, realize SAWS wants to alienate you from other environmental organizations opposing Vista Ridge. Instead — consider using those funds to help us beat the SAWS buzz saw and save your city from being ridiculed as the water grabbing baron of Texas.)
Now, we take these SAWS people very seriously.
Watch this 1-minute video to see our very statesmanlike response to SAWS Chairman Berto Guerra who shares his conviction that SAWS has channeled divine intervention in the Vista Ridge deal to benefit San Antonians. (Berto’s rapture simply overtook him just before he leaves on his most recent junket to Spain.)
Sincere thanks to Terry Burns, Alamo Sierra Club Chair, for the best testimony yet on Vista Ridge. We, on the other side of the pipeline, appreciate you so much.
Please share this video and get your Texas friends to sign the petition right here.
NOW, WE HAVE VERY IMPORTANT WORK FOR YOU TO DO. Please do this!
