The Anti-PSB People Aren't Telling the Truth

When our Representative, Susie Byrd, filed an ethics complaint with the Texas Ethics Commission against the group that is putting a referendum before voters to take the stormwater utility away from the Public Service Board, she may have just touched the tip of the iceberg.

According to David K, Gerald Miller's group has been spending a lot more money quite illegally and telling people one big lie: taking stormwater management from the PSB and putting it under the City will reduce people's taxes.

Meanwhile, Open Space advocate, Rick Bonart, describes himself as a reformed PSB hater. He wants to keep stormwater management with the only group that can truly, effectively, and cost-efficiently manage stormwater: PSB.

By the way, Rick Bonart carries a lot of weight with me. I serve with him on the Open Space Committee and I know him to be a man of integrity who cares deeply about our environment. He and Charlie Wakeem have done so much for preserving our open spaces and our arroyos. They have cared so much for our beautiful part of the Chihuahuan Desert.
