Terri Hall and The Muckraker Team Up to Trash TTC in BusinessWeek.

BusinessWeek has come out with a good article called, "Meetings begin in Texas toll road plan" that helps to expose the TTC (Nafta Super Highway).

CLICK ON THE COMMENT SECTION to see the whole schedule. Each town hall meeting will begin at 6:30 p.m., but registration begins at 5:30 p.m.

I figured they would do a good job on it based on the questions the reporter asked me last week.

It's rare that Terri and I get to double team, but I like it. It seems like just yesterday that Terri Hall found me at the Capitol lawn during a TTC rally in 2005, searching for advice on how to stop the road and land crooks in San Antonio. She's come a long way, and it's good to know she's out there giving em hell on a regular basis.

Here's some of the article:

Backers of the TTC already have been accused of backroom political dealing, mounting a propaganda campaign and caving to foreign ownership.

"We really are getting ripped off," says Terri Hall, of San Antonio, who heads TURF -- Texans Uniting for Reform and Freedom. The group is suing the transportation agency, alleging its promotional campaign violates a ban on state officials using their authority for political purposes.


"Hall argues elected officials in the counties affected by the project have "sold out to the road lobby" and succumbed to courting.

Sal Costello, whose Austin-based Texas Toll Party has been opposing the TTC, speculated transportation officials should expect a cool reception at the meetings, which he said he won't attend.

"These meetings will change nothing,"
he said.
