Solving the mystery of the AIM Incorporation supporters' list

Original post made by Oxymo Ron, another community, on Apr 13, 2008

Dear neighbors,

It is quite simple to explain that one can be listed by AIM as supporting incorporation, but does not support the AIM incorporation proposal.

A joyous oxymoron.

In fact, all you have go do is say you support incorporation in any form and AIM will put you on the list. You need not be a resident within the boundaries of AIM's Town of Alamo. In fact, you need not have any interest in supporting the incorporation of the Town of Alamo.

All that is necessary is to ask to be put on the list. There is no test, no review, no qualifications, and no limitations.

I support incorporation and now all you have to do is guess what I mean by that.

Dear OX and neighbors,

We should not wonder about who might be on the AIM supporters' list, where they live or what form of incorporation they support. I suggest we should be more concerned about the regional political interests that are supporting AIM's incorporation of an autonomous council and government. SRV YMCA and other organizations at-odds with the interests of neighborhoods in our region have participated in various support activities and key individuals do not appear on the AIM supporters' list.

Be concerned, neighbors,

Who are you, neighbors?

The many Alamo residents that have listed their names on the AIM supporters' list are making their support for the Town of Alamo public. There are many differences of opinion on the government that will be created after the incorporation vote but all expect the creation of our town government to involve all interested citizens in the various taskforces necessary. We agree that a town council is just a starting point for coordination of such citizen involvement.

Clearly, we understand your concerns. If we could just agree to trust each other, we could agree on a town government that is very receptive to all neighbors' needs.

Dear Carol and AIM supporters,

There cannot be any doubt or mistrust when an incorporation proposal is specified for the resulting organization and operations. All discussions end with that simple reality.
