Urgent Notice to
Members and Others Challenging the Wisdom of the TTC:

It is extremely important that anyone and everyone who has a concern or issue with toll roads, public private partnerships, and especially the Trans Texas Corridor attend this public hearing and if possible offer testimony to the Senate Committee.

This means you.

This hearing represents the very first time that our state government has asked for input on the Trans Texas Corridor with the express purpose of listening to you.

Please do not squander this opportunity & privilege. calls on all members to attend this public hearing. CorridorWatch leadership will arrive at the auditorium by 8:00am.

While we invite you sign-up to speak, it is not necessary that you speak. Your presence with a Corridor Watch lapel sticker (available for you that morning) will demonstrate our strength and mutual concern.

We need your support.

Thousands and thousands of our members have asked the question,
"what can we do?"

Thursday, March 1st the answer to that question is attend this public hearing.

It may be the single most important thing that you can do this year.

We know that the hearing is on a workday. We know that you have other personal and business responsibilities. We know that not everyone who shares our concerns can attend the hearing, even if they want to.

If you cannot attend the hearing please do three things for us:

1. Call your Senator and ask that he or she attend this hearing. Tell your Senator's office that you will be unable to attend the hearing yourself and that you would like to leave your name and share with them your concern about tolls, privatization and the TTC.
(get the phone number here)

2. Fax a personal letter from yourself to Chairman Corona at 512.463.2840 expressing your concerns about tolls, privatization and/or the TTC; if you do not have access to a fax machine mail your letter as soon as possible to: Senate Transportation and Homeland Security Committee, PO Box 12068, Austin, TX 78711-2068. Include your name, address, telephone number, e-mail address and sign your name with this statement, "I hereby certify that the above statements by me are true and accurate and that the testimony I give before this body will be true and accurate."

3. Fax or mail a copy of your letter to Senator Corona to your own State Senator (get contact information here).

Thank You!

We have expended years of effort challenging the TTC and the hard work is starting to payoff. We are getting the attention of those who can make a real change in the direction of the TTC. Now is not the time to let up.

Linda and I look forward to seeing and visiting with you at the Capitol on Thursday, March 1st.
