Waking up, Smelling the Coffee!

Today, Tuesday, May 2, is the last day to vote early in local municipal and

school district elections. Election Day is this Saturday, May 6th.

All elections are important. We have focused on the city of Bastrop for a reason. If you cannot vote in Bastrop, think about what you can do to help after you read this.

Bastrop demonstrates what is going wrong in an entire region, as Austin forces modest income folks and retirees to flee it’s affordability crisis. Bastrop County is the 6th fastest growing county in the state. It is under siege by assorted scoundrels looking to cash in. Will voters wake up and smell the coffee, or simply drown?

We have been on the phones talking to them. Every indication is that they are waking up.

This opinion editorial by Glenn Johnson,

in Saturday’s paper is the latest alarm.

Three seats out of 5 (correction: 6) on the Bastrop City Council are contested in this election — for Mayor and City Council Places 3 and 4. We are working feverishly to persuade voters that denying these seats to DeLaRosa, Ennis and Harle is crucial.

The good news is that there are some VERY good people running. Though this is not an endorsement, we have done our homework. These leaders — Connie Schroeder for Bastrop Mayor, Lyle Nelson for Place 3 and Nancy Wood for Place 4 — deserve full consideration. Go to our page dedicated to this election. Tell us if you think we got our homework right.

Please share this post!

Regardless of the outcome, we do see a future for ordinary Texans. They (and we) can continue to self-organize and unite independentlty of both parties.

United we stand, divided we fall.
