About followup TTC (Trans Texas Corridor) Meetings

2 August 2006 at 10:46:53 AM

At a number of the TTC meetings I attended, one of the speakers was Linda Curtis of Independent Texans, who was very knowledgeable and persuasive about both the origins of the TTC legislation as well as the direction Texas is going with privatized toll roads. She is also working for the Carole Keeton Strayhorn campaign.  She is attempting to arrange a followup meeting in Somervell County and I was initially interested. I did wonder, however, whether the TTC meeting would be a CKS campaign opportunity and today Linda confirmed to me that it is. I told her that I would be more than happy to help her arrange this if I could also bring in the other governor candidates or representatives of same, and she said that wasn't the purpose of the meeting. However, I don't support CKS, although I respect her vocal stance against Perry and the TTC...  and any TTC meeting that I have a hand in would have to be non-partisan and afford equal time to all. 

I do believe that it's important to have as much information put out locally for Somervell residents as possible about the TTC, because it seems like a lot of people, while they might have heard of TTC, don't know what it is... or what it represents, ie, the taking of people's private land for a private foreign company's use. So I'm going to ponder that some. Wonder if it would be possible to do free speech from the county courthouse square, in the same way that David Van Os did recently?
