Early Voting begins Monday

  Early Voting: Oct 21st - Nov1st



(we'd like to encourage you to follow the link to read the  the pros and cons in detail)



Monday-Early Voting begins

Every 2 years, we are asked to consider what our state legislators want us to amend in our Texas Constitution.  This Nov 5th, we have 9 proposed changes to consider.  Of those 9, only 4 received a “no” vote in the House chamber, and in the Senate they all passed without one single “no” vote.  So you see, Austin wants you to show up and put your stamp of approval on these amendments.  I am asking you to do a little research on them and decide for yourself.

Here’s a link to an article on all 9 propositions.  Within a few days, the airwaves will be bombarded with ads about “Prop 6”, the water funding amendment.  Please do some homework.  If you don’t have time to do the homework, please show up and vote no.  If your  “no” vote means a good proposition fails, I guarantee you it will come up again and you’ll have another chance to research it more.

Here’s the link to my article, and thank you for taking part in your government.  Your actions are affecting my children’s future.
