A TEXAS SIZE THANK YOU
AT THIS TIME, WE WOULD LIKE TO THANK EACH AND EVERYONE OF YOU WHO HELPED US FIGHT H.B. 1309 IN THE TEXAS HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES. ALTHOUGH THINGS DIDN'T WORK OUT THE WAY WE WOULD HAVE WANTED, THE FIGHT STILL CONTINUES. HUNDREDS OF YOU TOOK TIME OUT OF YOUR BUSY SCHEDULE BY SENDING US YOUR EMAILS, LETTERS, AND MAKING PHONE CALLS. AND WE APPRECIATE EVERYONE WHO TOOK THE TIME AND EXPENSE TO TRAVEL TO AUSTIN FOR THE COMMITTEE HEARINGS. GIVEN ONLY 5 DAYS NOTICE BEFORE THE COMMITTEE HEARINGS, YOU TOOK THE TIME AND MADE THE SPECIAL EFFORT, WITH MANY OF YOU TRAVELING FROM QUITE A DISTANCE TO AUSTIN. UNFORTUNATELY, WE CAN'T LIST EVERYONE AS THE LIST IS EXTENSIVE AND QUITE IMPRESSIVE. HOWEVER, YOU KNOW WHO YOU ARE AND SO DOES EVERYONE ELSE!
SPECIAL RECOGNITION GOES TO
DAVE BARKER - Dave, you were the VOICE OF REASON throughout this chaotic time. You spent countless hours traveling from your home to Austin for special meetings and hearings, as well as taking phone calls and answering emails from those who were concerned.
DON SODERBERG - Don, you were the VOICE OF CALM throughout this chaotic time. You also spent a lot of time traveling from your home to Austin for special meetings and hearings while keeping our group calm, in spite of everything that was thrown at us.
RALPH ALDIS - Ralph, you were the our VOICE OF COMMUNICATION throughout this chaotic time. You took a great deal of time visiting individually with House Members and Senators communicating our concerns.
Randal & Bonnie.
