We’re still petitioning!

WE ARE STILL PETITIONING! SPREAD THE WORD and help a city in crisis!

Wetiger_run_md_clr have a tiger — the Bastrop good ol’ boys — by the tail, y’all.

We’re not letting ’em go!

Despite slow mail we have had EXCELLENT!!! response to BOTH petitions:  #1 for more reasonable citizens petition requirements in the city of Bastrop and #2 to recall Bastrop Mayor Ken Kesselus.

What can you do? Help us reach out to city of Bastrop voters to let them know we’re still petitioning. Get the petitions to them or call us and we will. Due to mail unreliability, we are also now scheduling drop offs and pick ups. You can help deliver & pick up or go get folks to sign the petition or call us with your ideas. (We have the voter registration, so we can tell you who’s eligible to sign.)

MARK YOUR CALENDERS FOR THIS MEETING!

Topic:  Status of the petitions and what’s it got to do with our water?

Monday, July 25, 6:30 pm
First National Bank Community Room
489 Highway 71 W, Bastrop (the main bank across the street from HEB)
This meeting is for petition signers only as we will have limited seating. Reply or call to reserve a seat.

Our response to Mayor Ken Kesselus: We have read and listened quietly and patiently to your response, Mayor Kesselus. After calling us liars and bullies, you continue to mince words about your brazen attempts to thwart Bastrop’s Ethics law (on multiple occasions) in support of your then employer, Mark Rose. You continue to defend appointing Joe Beal, a water marketer, to the Bastrop Economic Development Board and giving Beal a pass when he tried to deal water to Austin from the dais as a Bastrop City Councilman. You clearly bungled an attempt to violate the Texas Open Meetings Act. You cannot even muster enough decency to apologize to the City Manager and the city’s attorney that you have publicly berated. You are their boss and the crisis of confidence in the city of Bastrop is squarely due to your own shortcomings. Get it together Mr. Kesselus, or leave.

Sludge Goes Bye-Bye, Petitions a’ flying’

Yippee!  Late yesterday, Denali Water Solutions withdrew the permit to spread sludge on the Wallace Ranch in Cedar Creek!

Thanks to a great team of very willing affected landowners, local residents, volunteers, and the VFW in Rockne together with elected officials — Judge Paul Pape and the entire Bastrop County Commissioners Court, State Rep. John Cyrier and State Senator Kirk Watson.  We now need your help to spread the word that this is over. Please tell your neighbors in Cedar Creek, Rockne and Red Rock. Read the great news details right here on DontSludgeBastrop.info. We suggest you stay engaged, folks. This area of Bastrop County is slated for continued likely high growth since Austin can’t seem to break the growth lobby-hold wreaking havoc on their affordability.

Bastrop Petition Update! Both petitions are getting traction for 1. establishing fair petition requirements for petititions and 2. recalling Bastrop Mayor Ken Kesselus. BUT due to slowness of mail, please help us reach CITY OF BASTROP VOTERS. The cover letter and petitions are on this page. And yes, despite what the Mayor is saying, we stand by all we have written and there’s more coming.

That’s all for now, folks!

PS Please keep those donations comin’. We need small or large.

PPS Bring us to you to help you wherever you are.
