Keep Austin Blue 9/28
Thank you to all of you that gave unselfishly of your time and money to help our guests from New Orleans and Houston. Austinites from across this blue city demonstrated to the rest of the country how unrestrained generosity, good government, and progressive values can make a meaningful difference during times of crisis. Great job, Austin!

In the wake of the Citys Gulf Coast relief efforts, the City of Austin recently approved the 2005-2006 City budget and is crossing its fingers for relief reimbursement. To help us understand the Citys $2.1 billion budget, rising public safety costs, and service budget cuts, our featured speakers this month are Brewster McCracken, City Council Member Place 5 and Jennifer Kim, City Council Member Place 3. Well also have a representative from the Save Barton Creek Association who will discuss ongoing efforts to dissuade AMD from moving to the Lantana Tract over the Edwards Aquifer.

In addition, we also have a new shipment of the Keep Austin Blue t-shirts for which we are receiving so many requests. So, please come and join other progressive individuals for stimulating conversation, great speakers, cool libations, and just plain fun!

If you cant wait for our next meeting, check out our witty, funny, and, at times, edgy blog at .
