Dear #FIRST_NAME#Friends#: click here to share this message from our blog

You know how sometimes, in the middle of a fight, you miss the forest for the trees?

San Antonio Water System has yet to explain -- or remedy -- the loss of 32 million gallons per day of water in the SAWS system. Meanwhile, at the behest of the real estate lobby, the San Antonio City Council is about to vote on 50%+ rate hikes mostly dedicated to purchase 44 million gallons per day of NEW water -- Vista Ridge.*

San Antonio Mayor Ivy Taylor needs to have her phone ringing off the hook today before the vote tomorrow -- as well as appropriate City Council members.

Here's the number:  210.207.7040

Is it not time -- long overdue -- for a united movement of rural, suburban and urban Texans to cut off the perpetual hogs at the public trough?
