| As I write to you on Christmas eve, I am asking for your help after Christmas to make this specially called election in the middle of the holidays Rick Perry’s worst blunder since the Trans-Texas Corridor. He opened the door for voters to unite across party lines to put an independent in the Texas House (HD 17) — that would be me, Linda Curtis.I most need your help to reach voters before and during early voting, which starts onMonday, December 29th! Election day is January 6th.Come to my Bastrop event on Sunday, Dec. 28, 4 to 6 pm at Neighbor’s (formerly Bastrop Brewhouse, 601 Chestnut — on the Colorado River next to Wells Fargo Bank.) Apologies if this conflicts with other events — we tried to rearrange but couldn’t — so come when you can.Can’t make it? Call me or reply to this message.You can now contribute, preferably online on this webpage — see the DONATE button.Merry Christmas y’all from me, Miss Penny and Mr. Boo from the piney woods of Bastrop.Independently yours,Linda Curtis

PS We had a lovely event in Giddings last night. I especially want to thank my friend and campaign treasurer, Gary Gerdes and his lovely wife Dorothey for their help. I have come to love the good people of Lee County, ground zero for the water grabs.
Independent spokesperson & Vista Ridge opponent, Linda Curtis of Bastrop, filed just before the deadline in the Special Election for the 17th TX Rep Dist. The 17th, comprised of Lee, Bastrop, Caldwell, Gonzales, & Karnes Counties, represents the front line of the Water Wars.
(The 13th, to the east, is also significant as those counties represent the ultimate sources of much of the water.)
“I’m running not only to defend our water, our property rights and local control. I’m mad as all get out that the Governor is pulling this election in the middle of the holidays and that Tim Kleinschmidt abandoned District 17 — on the heels of selling us and our water out,” Curtis said.
Linda will be chiefly contending against John Cyrier (“seareeyay” of Caldwell Co, the Republican establishment lackey). Also Brent Goleman, a far-right anti-choice entusiast + Democrat Ty McDonald and Shelley Cartier, who will probably run little more than a FB campaign.
