Toll Road Party-to endorse anti-toll road candidates

By Yvonne Phelps

The San Antonio Toll Party, which normally meets at 7 p.m. in the Reagan High School Library on the third Thursday of each month, met on Wednesday, July 19th. This keeps our opponents confused. About forty people attended, including Congressional Dist. 21 candidate John Courage.

Party leader Terri Hall announced that the San Antonio Toll Party
would be sending questionnaires to all candidates from both parties to get them to put their positions on toll roads in writing.

The San Antonio Toll Party will then endorse (probably in September) those anti-toll candidates, of either party, who are running against pro-toll candidates. This should be good news for Kathi Thomas and Larry Stallings, both who are opposed to toll roads.

The remainder of the meeting was devoted to finding volunteers to attend the various TxDOT and MPO meetings over the next month, to hand out fliers at those meetings, to hand out fliers along Bandera Road, and to get people to go to the web site to sign the on-line petition.

Hopeully some of our candidates will get endorsed by the anti-toll party and win in November.
