Freedom from Corporatocracy

@bexarkat: taken from where I live, the name Béjar is of pre-Roman origin. The original form was Bigerra and is said to mean "place of the beehives." "Béjar" could be an adaption from the Spanish word abeja, which means "bee." An older spelling of the city's name is Béxar.

But most Texans get it, that water is not a commodity, it is a natural resource, and it’s sinful to squander it. Most […]

Under Extras -> Downloads – added a four to page, letter-sized, double-sided, campaign flyer that you can download and print if you have the means. It is in color, but prints just fine in b/w. Since I don’t […]

Are your public officials’ emails public information?

Commissioner “Elizondo’s assertion that a public official’s e-mails and telephone logs have “nothing to do with government,” is at best ignorant and at worst, arrogant.(1)” I think this quote speaks for itself. Transparency is vital for democracy and open records requests are a vehicle for that transparency. Having recently had some work emails subpoenaed in […]

Reasons to Run for Commissioner

My sole opponent is a 24yr incumbent. His website as of today (August 15, 2010) does not have any issues posted despite starting his campaign in November of last year (2009). He feels secure in keeping his seat without going to the people. He believes you will elect him because of his name, his incumbency, […]

the US Supreme Court decided that restrictions on ballot access will help maintain a two-party system and is therefore constitutional to prevent other parties from having easy access. Does this piss you off? Then sign our petition! We’ve put up an online petition for you to sign to get the Green Party and all of […]
