Demand an acceptable Incorporation Proposal

Original post made by Alamo neighborhoods forum, another community, on Nov 19, 2007

Alamo Incorporation Movement (AIM) is starting their fund raising drive to fund AIM Incorporation Application, Review and Approval, and Election. Looking beyond the issue of the petition’s misrepresentation as “only requesting a feasibility study,” each neighbor must now consider what will be AIM’s terms of incorporation within the application’s Incorporation Proposal. To fund the application, review and approval, and election without knowing the terms of incorporation to be considered could have Alamo neighbors funding an autonomous city government without citizens’ participation and oversight. As all neighbors now recognize, the incorporation proposal summary within the AIM petition, that most of you never saw or were offered review, clearly states that Alamo will be ruled by an autonomous five member city (town) counsel.

Dear Alamo neighbors,

Beyond the obvious interests of AIM committee and supporters, there is little to fear in the result of AIM's efforts. They are less than 1000 residents in Alamo that do not have majority support for their fund raising or any eventual incorporation election.

We, in the Tice Valley neighborhoods of the Alamo Region, have not been lied to by AIM petition volunteers. We have been excluded from AIM's special definition of THEIR town, whatever that is, and the opportunity to consider signing the petition.

So let's just vote no! No money for incorporation application, study and approval. A majority NO vote if AIM gets as far as a incorporation election.

James
