San Antonio Friends:
Many people are unaware that there is ONE City Council seat up for grabs tomorrow. That is District 2, currently held by Keith Toney. Toney was just appointed tothis seat, after Ivy Taylor was appointed to step into the Mayor’s seat, following Castro’s appointment by President Obama to head HUD.
Independent Texans, has been on the phones to City Council District 2 voters asking folks to consider voting for Alan Warrick, rather than Keith Toney who voted for the $3.4B Vista Ridge water grab last week. All 11 members of the Council rushed through this project — telling all San Antonio Water System ratepayers to take a hike!
If you know folks who live in these District 2 neighborhoods (see list below), please contact them and ask them to vote for Warrick. We spoke with Alan and he readily understands the problems of Vista Ridge, especially that it was such a rushed deal. He is also concerned about gentrification of District 2 and someone we can work with over the coming months and beyond. Remember, we now have 30 months, by virtue of a provision in the Vista Ridge contract, to get SAWS to walk away.
Polls are open 7 to 7 pm. Here’s where folks can find their poll site: http://bexar.org/cfdocs/electionspublic/Where2Vote.cfm
Or they can call this number to find out their poll site: 210-335-8683
Pass it on and Remember Vista Ridge!
