On June 30th Linda Curtis made the contest for Texas House District 17 (Bastrop, Burleson, Caldwell, Lee, and Milam counties) a three-way horse race by entering as an independent.
"Both parties insist on making Central Texas one big real estate play, using our tax dollars, water, and land to subsidize unbridled growth. Our choices are this simple. Let the Big Growth, Big Problems two-party political machines ruin our lives OR join the independent electoral revolt." Linda Curtis, independent for Texas House District 17.
Linda wants to:
Make growth pay for itself and harness property appraisals gone wild.
Keep our water local -- audit and cut back Vista Ridge, the San Antone Hose.
End giveaways to corporate interests as they destroy our land and water future.
Secure an independent review of how growth challenges our electric grid.
Open up Texas elections to electoral competition -- to more than two choices!

Remember Rich Strike, the 80-1 shot that just won the Kentucky Derby? Linda's odds are better, with 43% of Americans identifying as independents.
In November, whoever gets the most votes wins. That means with as little as 34% of the vote, Linda can win HD17, leaving her Republican and Democratic opponents in the dust.

Former Governor Rick Perry loaded up his longtime employee, Stan Gerdes, with $600,000 from DC and Austin lobbyists to buy Stan the Republican nomination for HD17. Don't let them get away with it. Share this, donate & volunteer!
