Charter Propositions

WATAUGA ~ PLEASE REVIEW & PRINT TO TAKE TO THE POLLS WITH YOU!

Watching Watauga

Here’s a link to the existing charter.  http://www.ci.watauga.tx.us/DocumentCenter/View/1039

Proposition 1:  I’m for this.

As the Charter reads now, a sitting Councilperson must resign their seat to run for Mayor.  This is needlessly stringent.  Running for office in a small town like ours really isn’t a big burden.  One could do so and still satisfy all of the requirements of a Councilperson.

Proposition 2:  I’m for this.

I can see an argument for possibly keeping this one, though I tend towards freedom rather than not.  If someone has more than a year left in their term and wants to run for State Rep or something, they have to give up their spot.

Proposition 3:  I’m for this.

Regular Council meetings are held in the Council Chambers.  Special meetings, as the Charter dictate now, are not able to be held anywhere outside of the City.  This would allow the Council to attend…

Early Voting record for Watauga

Evidence of LOTS of Hard Work by Bob Daniels for Mayor & Jo Lynn Haussmann for City Council and our Helpers!!!

Watching Watauga

Tarrant County Elections have some interesting reports up about the Early voting for Watauga.  You can’t see the votes, but it’ll show you how many people have voted so far.  The County is showing that 648 have cast a ballot, which I understand is a record for Watauga, at least in the last 5 years.
 
That’s a link to the page where you can see the numbers and get some of the information that they’ve put out so far.  It makes for some very interesting reading.  One of the reports actually shows the names of the people who’ve voted.  !!SWEET!!
That’s a link to the page that will show you the vote totals by city.
Cool stuff.  If you care. 🙂

Birdville Bond – Vote AGAINST

VOTE AGAINST the BISD Bond!!!

Watching Watauga

You probably already know I’m against this.  I’m against the socialistic funding of education and I think anything and everything that can be done to get EVERY level of government intrusion in education out should be done so with all the speed that we can muster.

Until that time, stopping stupid bond issuances for things like this that represent poor management of the worst kind is likely the best that we can do.

 

For BetterBirdville.org Website

Birdville ISD claims that a bond is ESSENTIAL to continue to operate and maintain our schools. Many citizens believe that a bond which raises taxes on the residents and places the district in $679 million dollars of long-term debt is not the answer. There IS a better way to provide the quality education our students need to achieve academic excellence.

Their claim – Eliminate more than 50 portable classrooms across the district.

EARLY VOTING RECORD FOR WATAUGA

EARLY VOTING RECORD FOR WATAUGA

I am sharing a post from another blog.  VERY EXCITING!!!

Ever Wonder Why Conservatives Are Called Right & Liberals Are Called Left?

BISD Brad Greene, VP Argues With Me &…..

I spoke with a homeowner across the street from Watauga Elementary on Monday evening, April 29 to obtain permission to place signs for my campaign, as well as Jeff Ritter for BISD Trustee and a sign to vote against the BISD Bond to be seen at the elections being held at the school on Tuesday.  

Late morning on Tuesday, BISD School Board VP, Brad Greene  pulled up the “Don’t Vote for the BISD Bond” sign I had put in the yard across the street the evening before and threw it on the ground.  He then came over and started arguing with me about voting for the bond!  I got really upset and he gave up trying to convince me to vote for the bond of “wasteful spending” and walked off.  We didn’t argue, as I wouldn’t.  It was just a heated debate.  He kept telling me it’s all lies the other side is sharing.  All lies.  He just kept saying lies, yet he had nothing to prove they were lies although we have “proof” to show what they are saying and sharing is not complete truth.

This is his BISD Profile:

Elected to the BISD Board of Trustees in 2009,    Greene is married to Amy and has three children-Grace, Caroline and Thomas.   He attended Birdville schools and graduated from Haltom High School in 1986 and Baylor University in 1990.

Greene is vice chairman on the Parks and Recreation Board for the City of North Richland Hills and is a former member of the Gas Board of Appeals for the City of North Richland Hills. In addition, he served as a member of the naming committee for Birdville High and was a member of the City of North Richland Hills’ bond program for roads and new city facilities. He is a member of North Richland Hills Baptist Church and the NE Richland Lions Club.

I would HATE to think about what is going on with our tax dollars in these committee’s decisions if he and his “cronies” are out pulling up signs and lamblasting people to TRY to get them to vote FOR the Bond! 

“100” signs have come up missing throughout the area!   hmmmmm – Wonder where they are?  I wonder who even wanted them?  I am NOT saying it is Brad or even alluding to that, but I know he pulled the one up across the street from the school.  I couldn’t believe it!  A VP on the School Board!  What are our children learning if their parents and our school board does this kind of stuff!

Several investigations are in place right now as well as security throughout the area watching to see who the person/people are.  There is a $600 award for the first person to “see” someone taking one up or stealing it.

Greene is an agent with Farmers Insurance since1993. (I sure wouldn’t want him to be my insurance agent if he displays the kind of behavior he did with me all because I wouldn’t agree with him.)
