That's Guadelupe County

“I didn’t speak up last time because I was just too chicken,” said Poth resident Amber Lyssy, who was wearing a shirt declaring TTC is bad for Texans.

Lyssy and her husband, who ranch about 600 acres, said she would be standing up to be heard because for too long, rural people were not being informed.

“We are really concerned because this isn’t all over the media,” Lyssy said. “This is going to move at least a million people from their homes.”..

David Van Oss, [sic]a candidate for Texas attorney general, spoke as a concerned citizen and like Strayhorn, railed against the proposed highway project and the potential ramifications that could result between the state government and the citizens.

“Forcible imminent domain will fundamentally alter the proper relationship between the individual and the government,” he said. “If this is completed, it will be one of the most gigantic single exercises of forcible imminent domain in the history of the United States.
