Austin American-Statesman ABSURDLY tells voters to approve ALL 10 Proposed Constitutional Amendments
In my humble opinion, it seems as though the City of Austin, Travis County and the Austin American-Statesman want to force-out the poorer and middle classes from their homes and property to bring in the more wealthy residents these entities would prefer living in the city and county.
The only proposition worth any merit on the November ballot is Proposition 1, which transfers a 100 percent disabled veteran's total property tax exemption to the spouse after the veteran’s death for as long as the person resides there.
The rest of the 10 Proposed Constitutional Amendments are special interest directed and are NOT in the best interests of the Texas community at-large.
The Editorial Staff of the Statesman are either themselves motivated by special interests, or they may have been duped by the wording of each proposition, or they are inept as thinking editors.
Of the 10 Proposed Constitutional Amendments ONLY Prop 1 is worthy for voters to approve. ALL of the remaining 10 Propositions are special interest directed and voters should vote AGAINST them.
To read my opinions on all 10 of the Propositions and how I see them, please go to:
