Christmas Holiday Party!

Saturday, Dec. 19, 2 to 4 pm

Important News!

Two courageous Bastrop City Councilwomen, Kay McAnally and Kelly Gilleland, stood up for transparent and ethical government on the day before Thanksgiving when Bastrop Mayor Ken Kesselus appointed water marketer, Joe Beal, to the Bastrop Economic Development Corporation. It was reported here in the newspaper. Beal's appointment followed a failed attempt by Kesselus to appoint his boss to the EDC -- Mark Rose, CEO of Bluebonnet Electric Coop -- and Rose's wife, Dianna, to another City Board. Rose asked Bastrop City Attorney, JC Brown, to explain Bastrop's Ethics Ordinance to him. Here’s what Brown wrote in a Memorandum to Rose. Watch the video of this Council meeting (click on that weird looking cat on the right) and share! More soon...

In Memoriam:
