I submitted the toll resolution at my very long precinct event last night - it sure wasn't a 30 minute deal - sorry about that folks. : )
A number of you emailed me on your great success in both D and R events across Texas. Congrats! Please stay involved in your community. Here are just a few of the emails. Please share your thoughts and experiences in the comments area:
"I wanted to let you know that tonight,"Just letting you know that the Precinct 460 Republican Caucus unanimously adopted all 3 resolutions. Thanks for all of your continuing hard work in this fight."
I took copies of your 3 resolution to
my precinct caucus and read them and
all three were adopted...I hope many
other's did the same and we can stop
the tolling of our roads & this land
grab. Keep up the good work."
"Thanks to Sal Costello (http://salcostello.blogspot.com/) and his well organized and informative website, I downloaded the three forms, printed out multiple copies and went to caucus. I was the ONLY one who brought resolutions to the table so I was quickly dubbed "TTC Spokesperson / Resolution Person for 4 precincts, mainly because I could summarize it and put it in layman's terms on what they would vote for and what was going on with this....Out of about 600 or so people, all three TTC / toll issues were unanimous votes. People are familiar with TTC by name only; many don't seem to know the details which I guess means more homework by many of us fighting this. When I brought up 's name that pretty much stirred up the crowd and it was funny some of the stuff people voiced (out loud in public) about that bozo."
"I introduced all of my anti toll-TTC resolutions and they passed, even though nobody knew me. They were impressed by my presentation organization. All I did was print the resolutions off of your web site and read them to the delegates. They were intrigued. Many were clueless, and some required a little education. One Obama delegate said he was sure 100% of the gas tax went back into roads. I told the Obama folks they need to look up the Texas Toll Party."
Precinct 3015 report. Democratic caucus adopted all three Texas toll party resolutions."
"I was the only person to bring any resolutions to the caucus. I read them and was greeted to standing ovations for every one of them."
