Citizens Fight TTC Pile of Crap

“I’ve walked through my cow pasture plenty of times. I’ve seen plenty of piles of crap, and the TTC is the biggest, stinkiest thing I have ever heard of” says Joseph Mathis, Waller County citizen. Joseph reads a letter from his brother, a marine who is now fighting in Iraq, who says, "Leave us the Hell alone!".

CBWC Newsletter Subscribers:

We would like to thank everyone that came out last night to the TXDOT public hearings in Waller and Hempstead, and especially those of you that made your voices heard. We were moved emotionally and spiritually more times than we could count.... Waller County truly is a special place.

CBWC had tables at both hearings last night, in addition to a table at the hearing in Victoria. Rough statistics from last night: 600 in attendance at Waller, with 54 speakers. 200 in attendance at Hempstead, with 44 speakers. 500+ in attendance at Victoria, with 74 speakers. We've posted a few videos from last night's hearing at Waller at
http://www.wallercountycitizens.org/articles.php?ID=385 and on our Youtube page at www.youtube.com/stopthettc. More video clips will be added this weekend.

There are only 4 more public hearings left in our area. Tonight is Navasota and Humble. Again, CBWC will have a table at both locations. We are asking that anyone that can come join us again tonight, please do so. Don & Brenda Garrett are attending Humble and if anyone can assist them, please contact Don at dongarrett@hughes.net. We think there may be some folks in Grimes County that may have given into the NIMBY approach (not in my backyard), and rather than support the "NO ACTION ALTERNATIVE", they may ask that the TTC-69 be routed onto Hwy 6.

While this might help some folks in Grimes (temporarily), it will not be good for Waller County, especially when the TTC-69 hits Hempstead and turns southeast through the heart of Waller County. We all know that for more reasons than we care to count, the TTC-69 is BAD FOR ALL OF TEXAS. No matter where it goes. Please help us spread this message tonight in Navasota and:

ESPECIALLY ON MONDAY, MAR. 3 IN BRYAN at the Bryan Civic Auditorium on 800 S. Coulter Drive in Bryan. Certain Brazos Valley leaders who are convinced that the TTC-69 is good for Bryan/College Station are pushing to get out a large number of "pro-TTC" folks at Bryan. WE MUST RESPOND ACCORDINGLY!!! We need to show TXDOT that there are still more folks out there that oppose this ill-conceived project than want it. We need to let Grimes and Brazos County know how their decisions will affect us.

So, please join us tonight and make plans to definitely join us in Bryan on Monday (and brings all of your family, friends, and co-workers). We look forward to seeing you there!!!

The CBWC Quick Guide to the TTC-69 DEIS which we have been providing to folks at the TXDOT Public Hearing is now available online at http://www.wallercountycitizens.org/articles/cbwc_quick_guide_to_the_ttc69_deis_v002.3.pdf

We are also attaching a revised flier regarding the last two public hearings in Bryan and Hempstead. Please feel free to distribute this or post it wherever you can.
