Tea Parties at Odds on Candidates – the rest or the story

Dear Weatherford Citizens,

Eric Matthews

I am copying the written statement I sent to Margarita Venegas, Editor of the Weatherford Democrat on Friday, May 6th that was supposed to be printed in its entirety in Sunday’s frontpage article entitled “Tea Parties at Odds on Candidates”.  I don’t quite understand why bits and pieces of it was printed instead of a verbatim of what I submitted.  By leaving out the facts I submitted in my written statement, the reader does not get the full truth of my side of the story.  Therefore, I am taking this opportunity to share my statement in its entirety to Ms. Venegas.
See below verbatim statement I submitted to Margarita Venegas, Editor of the Weatherford Democrat on Friday, May 6th:

City Council’s Three Amigos of Tax and Spend

by Eric Matthews

Well folks it seems more spending is coming our way if we don’t speak up. There are two items on the Tuesday, December 8, 2008 City Council Agenda to be voted on at 6:30pm in the City Council Meeting.  Those items are #8 and #9 on the Consent Agenda.

Item #8 Discuss and consider Resolution R2009-29 authorizing the city manager to make application to the Statewide Transportation Enhancement Program for funds to construct Phase II of the Hike and Bike Trail system.

In 2006 the City of Weatherford applied for Statewide Transportation Enhancement Program (STEP) funds to construct and extend the hike and bike trail from the Santa Fe Depot northwest to Cartwright Park. The program was receded the following year. The Texas Department of Transportation has again issued a call for projects to be funded through the Statewide Transportation Enhancement Program and a resolution authorizing the city manager to nominate this project for funding is submitted for council discussion and consideration. The deadline for submission is December 11, 2009.

Total cost of the proposed project is estimated to be $3,164,800.00 and the city will be required to pay 20% of the total cost. The city’s match would be $632,960.00.
