The founder of TexasTollParty.com shines a light on the dark corners of special interest boondoggles: Double tax tolls and Trans Texas Corridor tax, toll & debt schemes.
The Voice of the Taxpayer blog has a good article called "Waaaaaa Watson", on how Sen. Watson is a damn fool. And....learn how Watson is crooked.
A chance to speak up. My personal opinion- monorail, light rail, heavy rail that doesn't compete with automobile traffic. Run it until 3am to cut down on drunk driving and the need to park downtown in the first place. Run it to and from the airport. Every other major city in the world has efficient mass transit. Austin doesn't. We're stuck with an airport flyer bus that's so slow it stops at 15th street for 3 cycles of the stoplight. Unacceptable! Mass transit is possible without succumbing to toll roads. St. Louis, MO has a very efficient metrolink with ridership exceeding expectations and no toll roads. Metrolink goes to the airport.Please join us for a public workshop concerning Downtown mobility and public transit connections between Downtown and significant city destinations.Downtown Austin Plan – Mobility WorkshopTuesday April 22nd, 20085:30 to 8:00 p.m.First Floor Conference Room, Town Lake Center Building712 Barton Springs RoadAustin, Texas 78704The Phase One Report of the “Downtown Austin Plan,” which can be viewed at http://www.ci.austin.tx.us/downtown/default.htm#dntnplan, identified access to and mobility within Downtown as one of the most significant challenges facing Downtown Austin.
