Rail has been defeated twice by voters. Reasons include the staggering costs and trains would run on city streets impeding vehicle traffic. Not to be denied, our new mayor says rail will soon be on the ballot.
City Council will be selecting charter changes for a vote next year. HTA members submitted changes to the Charter Review Commission to increase transparency in bond elections. Council seems focused on longer terms.
City council directed removal of a confederate monument in the middle of the night and Robert E Lee High School will be renamed. How far will the purge go?
Our guest speakers include District 10 City Councilman Clayton Perry, Reporter Kenric Ward, Conservative Leader Jeff Judson, and Taxpayer Advocate Nikki Kuhns.

RF Meters have been implicated in fires causing DEATH !
Many families in San Antonio reside in densely populated areas such as apartments or closely built homes. Therefore, they are more likely to be exposed to higher levels of RF (a Class 2B Carcinogen) from "banks" of meters all pulsing constantly. Additionally, there are many older homes with old wiring. We believe it is reasonable for residents to be allowed to keep their analog meter without having to pay "opt-out" fees. Pedernales Electric and Austin Electric, both allow residents to have an analog meter. They do charge for the opt-out, however, we believe that policy is in direct opposition to the Federal Energy Act which proposed OPT-IN technology, not OPT-OUT ! We also believe that with enough citizen involvement across the country, Opt-Out fees will be overturned.
The US is an oligarchy, study concludes .. Click Here
"Researchers concluded that US government policies rarely align with the the preferences of the majority of Americans, but do favour special interests and lobbying organisations: "When a majority of citizens disagrees with economic elites and/or with organised interests, they generally lose. Moreover, because of the strong status quo bias built into the US political system, even when fairly large majorities of Americans favour policy change, they generally do not get it."
