There is going to be a meeting on the 1st of December at 5:30pm at 1607 E. Houston (Warrick’s office) to start campaigning for Alan Warrick who is in a run-off against Toney for the District 2 city council seat.
Alan Warrick, if elected, will put up a little fight against the Vista Ridge pipeline. This is much more than we have out of any city council representatives right now. A statement will solidify his position on the matter.
Folks should bring their phones and laptops as we’re likely to start making calls that evening for Warrick and/or get set to do some block walking.
