The Republican 35th district representative gave a very lively and informative narrative on Texas’ recent, and still debated re-districting plan. As the federal government questions the legality of the proposed changes, Rep. Aliseda has hopes that the changes remain to help balance out our districts to a more concise and fair representation of our state.
Eric Opiela, SREC Representative from SD #21, was also in attendance to give his take on the upcoming Oct. vote on 10 proposed amendments to the state constitution, with topics ranging from school and municipal funding to possible water-based tax exemptions. All information was given in a refreshing down to earth dialogue with question and answer sessions throughout the meeting.
Other Tea Party news included congratulating Mrs. Mary Ann Pawlik and all Live Oak County volunteers for the successful 911 Remembrance Ceremony held at the George West High School football field on Sunday evening. Mrs. Pawlik took the reins on this very worthwhile endeavor, and was very appreciative of all the hard work and dedication it took to pull everything together so that we will never forget the lives lost on that tragic day. She informed the group that over $3,000 was raised, divided and donated to five local volunteer fire departments. Thanks to everyone who helped, attended and donated on Sept. 11, 2011.
The Tea Party Patriots of Live Oak County will next meet on Tuesday, Oct. 18th at 6 p.m. at the same venue. All concerned citizens are invited to attend.
