One of the most impressive meetings yet, even more enjoyable to me than Fort Worth, which was pretty dang good. Maybe it's because only one politician's representatives FOR TTC showed up, so I didn't have to waste my time listening to even a minute of some yahoo pushing corporatism and stealing people's property for a spanish company. Over 400 people attended, including Leon Smith, former mayor of Clifton and editor of two newspapers, including the Lone Star Iconoclast of Crawford.

I'm not going to put up all the comments in video, but here were a few favorites

Newspaper article from the Clifton Record

CLIFTON — An estimated 400-plus packed the Clifton High School cafetorium Wednesday evening to issue a resounding “no thanks” to the Trans-Texas Corridor 35 running through Bosque County. An open house and public hearing hosted by the Texas Department of Transportation and the Texas Transportation Commission ran into unanimous opposition locally, and citizens almost as strongly opposed the entire project statewide.
Bosque County Judge Cole Word opened the public testimony by reading a resolution passed last year by Bosque County Commissioners’ Court. Word emphasized the court still opposes the project, whether it comes through the county or not.
“We haven’t adjusted yet to the second stop light in our county,” Judge Word jokingly remarked. “We’re not for one inch of the Trans-Texas Corridor in Bosque County. If we wanted to live in the Metroplex, we’d move there. We don’t want the Metroplex brought here.”

Read the whole article for more comments. It was a GREAT meeting.
