The Texas Supreme Court has denied our petition to ask the City of San Antonio to clarify the confusing and vague ballot language on the Annexation-Proposition A.  It is troubling to know that questionable actions by our municipalities continue to occur.  Sadly, litigation seems to be the only method we have to fight the injustices that we face on the San Antonio Annexation proposition this midterm election.  When we don’t succeed, we must stay motivated and determined and we must keep fighting!

A heartfelt “thank you” to everyone who contributed to the lawsuit.  This has been a testament to the strength of our grassroots efforts to keep big government in check. We must seek out leaders who value the ideals of our Constitutional Republic.  We should all be proud of our efforts!

As a reminder of how government entities run amok or lead us astray….

  • Fair Oaks Ranch forcibly annexes more than 10% of their land area the day before the Texas Annexation Right to Vote Act goes into effect.  A clear violation of Texas Local Government Code.

  • City of San Antonio asks residents outside of their electorate to choose between fees, fines and other charges AND fees, fines and other charges on the ballot.  If this is not a violation of the Title 5, Chapter 52 of the Texas Election Code, then it was written to be intentionally ambiguous.

  • The letter that the City of San Antonio sent to all registered voters in the annexation areas stated:  "Leaving the ballot blank or voting for both Option 1 and 2 will result in authorization of Option 2."  The Texas Attorney General has concluded in his Opinion (KP-0221): Election Code section 65.009 provides that a vote for a measure shall be counted if the voter's intent is clearly ascertainable. The City's plan to count ballots voting for both propositions or left blank as a vote in favor of Option 2 is contrary to this provision because such ballots do not indicate a clearly ascertainable intent for Option 2. 

Let’s remember that it hasn’t been that long ago (2017) that we fought for and won the right to vote for or against Annexation!  ** Vote NO Annexation - Option 2**.  Next, we focus on the upcoming legislative session to strengthen the Texas Annexation Right to Vote Act which will strengthen our rights.

Let’s celebrate a “No Annexation” victory at La Hacienda Scenic Loop on November 6 between 6pm - 10:30pm.  If you mention “HAA” or “Homeowners Against Annexation” when you order your food, they will donate to our cause. You can either just show up for dinner or RSVP at:
