Remember Who Voted to Toll You!

Friday, September 23rd, 2005

With upcoming elections, let’s remember who the bad guys are. TxDOT is just following orders. It’s the Governor, Legislature, County Commissioners (who petitioned to start the RMA tolling authority), and MPO who brought us toll proliferation WITHOUT A VOTE OF THE PEOPLE.

Tolling Authority Failed to Do the RIGHT Thing

Wednesday, September 14th, 2005

Public Outcry Picks Up a Notch!

Thursday, September 8th, 2005

There was great attendance at tonight’s TxDOT public hearing at Specht Elementary. For those who withstood the lengthy and very bureaucratic-speak remarks by TxDOT’s Julie Brown, they got their 3 minutes of comments. Questions will have to wait, however, because the public hearing process doesn’t allow for an exchange of ideas, the elites can’t bring […]
