House District 17 Debate

As you know, we have endorsed John Cyrier for reelection for his first full term. Why? Because we know that he works his…you know what off, he cares about his district and he went to bat for us on the water front.

That said, we hope you will make up your own mind and attend this debate.

The debate is tomorrow night, Monday, February 1, starting at 6 pm (details below) OR you can watch it online at This event is sponsored by area Chambers of Commerce.


Monday night’s debate between John Cyrier and Brent Golemon starts at 6 pm sharp at the Performing Arts Center at 1401 Cedar Street in Bastrop. That’s right next to Bastrop High School.

Also! The questionnaires that both candidates filled out for us are on this page of our website page “HD 17” here — click on their names in the second paragraph. They are revealing.

Got questions? Just ask us.

Thanks for paying attention to this important race for us, our water and our future!
