It is time to choose
Original post made by Leslie Stowe on Sep 4, 2007
All has been said about incorporation, all expertise distributed, and now Alamo residents must decide to lead or follow. Does Alamo want a citizen-led municipality or do we want CCC-BOS, a town council or another city's council to decide our future?

Thank you, Leslie, for stating clearly the issues that separate thousands of Alamo residents from the Alamo Incorporation Movement's petition to establish a town council that has the sole authority to create the future of Alamo. Whether the CCC-BOS or its MAC, an Alamo Town Council, or another city council that annexes Alamo, the result is quite the same. Alamo residents will not have citizens' oversight in determining the future of Alamo.
Your clarity was amazing,

Last night, Alamo made its choice.
Alamo Incorporation Movement, as AIM, has now defined itself among 90 or so volunteers that have been leaders in Alamo community groups. The absence of neighborhood and homeowners groups, as the majority in Alamo, clearly shows Alamo's majority has made its choice.
Incorporation is broadly supported in Alamo, but AIM's concept of a town council planning Alamo's future has been rejected.

It would be more productive to engage all of Alamo in a designed city that would serve everyone's interest as a voice in our community planning. I appreciate AIM for their wish to use political avenues to create such an opportunity and I understand my neighbors' concerns for the lack of assurances of a plan for our future.
Let's sit down and create that future now. Then we can put it in place by a carefully selected city council that are our neighbors and supporters.
Yes, let's make the young people our council because it is their future and let us be their guidance.
Is that too easy?
