To the City Council and all of the citizens of Arlington,

We the undersigned believe that the recently completed Term Limits Advisory Committee (TLAC) recommendation to City Council did not properly reflect the views as expressed during the more than thirteen (13) hours of committee meetings held.

We came to the TLAC with a variety of backgrounds and views but realized very quickly that our views were unwelcome. This was due in part to the overly narrow charge provided by City Council to the TLAC and the rest was due to the unnecessary rush of holding four (4) meetings over a fifteen (15) day period, a first in Arlington history for an appointed committee of any kind.

The TLAC’s charge was to solely review the length and number of terms allowed under Arlington’s current term limits, as passed by the voters in Nov. 2018. This ignored a number of points of view that we believed could have improved the TLAC’s recommendations and provided a more comprehensive view of what’s best for the City of Arlington. These points include, but are not limited to:
1. Liability if a vote is held before the constitutionally mandated two year waiting period;
2. A Recall option if term lengths are adjusted to three or more years;
3. Initiative and Referendum to give voters more say in many of the decisions facing Arlington;
4. Campaign Finance reforms that would lower the cost of running for Council or Mayor; and
5. Uniform Election date that would increase voter turnout and ensure improved representation.

Ultimately, this has been a missed opportunity for the City of Arlington as a whole. Instead of having an open and honest citizen-led discussion of ways to improve the city, we had a rehashing of the 2018 election that increasingly led to citizen distrust of the TLAC, and growing distrust of the reasons why the City Council formed this committee.

The final presentation of the TLAC includes one item in particular that we believe stepped outside the charge given to the committee and if adopted by City Council will be seen by the voters of Arlington as an overt effort to completely undo the very term limits they approved.

Twelve (12) out of twenty-four (24) members, or exactly half, of the committee voted to advise the City Council that it should eliminate all mention of a lifetime limit on the total number of terms someone might be in office.

This was the most extreme recommendation the TLAC made and it lacked a clear consensus mandate. It was not a clear majority, as two members of the TLAC were not present. We believe a more reasonable recommendation could have been made, if cooler heads had prevailed.

Therefore, we wish to express in the strongest possible terms our opposition to this extreme recommendation and advise the City Council to NOT proceed further. Our collective opinion is that moving forward will result in opposition by the voters of Arlington to the rest of the TLAC’s recommendations and potentially the defeat at the ballot box of any candidate who supports them or Council members who vote to move it forward.

State Fair of Texas

State Fair of Texas

It is with a heavy heart that we must announce the State Fair of Texas will not open for the 2020 season. Our mission at the Fair is to celebrate all things Texan and with that comes...being friendly, lending a helping hand, and looking out for others. This year, those essential traits of being a Texan matter more than ever. Right now, we must take care of our neighbors and loved ones.

The Fair’s commitment to our nonprofit mission of promoting agriculture, education, and community involvement will continue. In addition, we commit to maintaining as many participation opportunities as possible for both livestock and creative arts - stay tuned for more updates on these contests.

We have been around for 134 years and though we may not see each other in person this year, we can promise you we will be counting down the days until we can celebrate in 2021 and the many State Fair’s ahead of us. We will be waiting with open arms to welcome you back next year in true Texas-fashion with the biggest and best, “Howdy, Folks!”

We appreciate your understanding, and overall love and dedication toward the State Fair of Texas.

End Qualified Immunity - Form Letter

What is "Qualified Immunity" and why does it pose a danger to all citizens and especially those of racial and social minority?

If you agree to the simple premise that all individuals, regardless of occupation in law enforcement or otherwise, shall be held to the same rule of criminal law, please take a 5 minute break to write your US Representative in support of this proposed "End Qualified Immunity" bill. Read the attached letter for more information about this bill and how you can easily act in support of it. I just did!

It needn't be complicated, because if a law is important enough to put in place, it's important enough to apply to everyone.

https://docs.google.com/document/d/10RIF8mjE6nJvDScyfuICsRwXNAbTdNRk_cezbkXXwm4/mobilebasic

The only Libertarian in Congress, Justin Amash, wrote a bill to end qualified immunity. Call your representative and put pressure on them to pass this important piece of legislation if you want the riots to stop.

Arlington Independence Day Parade

Parade Update:

At this time, the Arlington Independence Day Parade is in communication with the City of Arlington, the Emergency Operations, and Medical Staff to plan the parade to conform with safety guidelines for both entrants and spectators.

While this is subject to change, we are still moving forward with the planning of Arlingtons longest running annual event that draws tens of thousands to downtown each year. We will provide another update as soon as we have one.

It is our hope that our community will be able to come together to celebrate on July 4th as we have for over 50 years. Though this parade will likely look a little different this year, we know it will be a fun and memorable event. As always, your safety is our top priority. We are #ArlingtonStrong

Good luck 👍🏽
Out cleaning up the park and shorelines
You were great at ARC this evening! You distanced yourself from those that did not want term limits. Term limits won 2 to 1! That is why we want you!
Very pretty smart, and nice
I have been driving all over Arlington the last two days and have seen your signs everywhere!
Thoughts on AirBNB?
