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. 

"Neither the Republican or Democratic candidates are addressing the growing cronyism upending our lives in HD17, so get in the saddle with me, folks. We are going to have to take care of this the independent way." 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 cutback 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!

Will Texans, including those who vote in the major party primaries, elect the first independent for a full term in the Texas House since 1959?

With 43% of Americans identifying as independents (voting for the person, not the party), Linda's odds are better than Rich Strike's, the 80-1 shot that just won the Kentucky Derby!

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.

Linda helped found Independent Texans PAC in 2001. She wrote this article in March about her Republican opponent, "Rick Perry's Poodle."
