This came in the other day:
[P] Here is another website you might consider adding to your list — since in this ongoing Texas Legislative Session — legislators will be looking at reducing the property roll back cap trigger down from it’s current trigger level of 8-percent — to a 2-percent trigger cap. See — https://www.gregabbott.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/01/PropertyTaxReform.pdf
[P] Our local legislative delegation members will fight against lowering the cap — and Sunday night on the KVIA TV News Extra program — Senator Rodriguez indicated he is against it. As he goes, the other members of the delegation will follow. In addition, the city, county, UMC and school districthired lobbyists — will also raise objections and fight against any lowering of the cap. The reality is — individual voters’ and property taxpayers — do not have hired lobbyists and others fighting for their interests. Bottom line — that’s where your blog can create an impact!
[P] The 2-percent level is most likely too low — so that cap trigger level may possibly be only a negotiating point — so legislators can compromise at a 4 or 5-percent trigger cap.
[P] Since many of your faithful blog followers’ and creatively blunt posters — are pissed about always rising local property taxes, plus associated stupid spending — here’s a chance for them to get their ‘oars in the water’ — and let those state legislators outside El Paso who are pushing this issue — know there are El Paso voters’ and property taxpayers — who approve, plus appreciate and support their efforts.

POST SCRIPT: Since you keep your blog updated each day — with a fresh topic for public thought and discussion — it is certainly better than the stale blogs of David K, Max Powers, Zorro and some of the others. Therefore, it certainly seems you have a daily opportunity — to make your blog an action site — by posting interactive web links as you have just started to do.
He is of course right.
We need to speak up and let the legislators know how we feel.
We deserve better
