Proposition #1 Vote For; Unifies the local,state and national election into one day in November thereby saving the city money.
Proposition #2 Vote NO; We elect these yahoos to represent us so they should be allowed only once or twice not showing up. They're paid enough so they should show up rain or shine.
Proposition #3 Vote NO; It is a nonsense ordinance.
Proposition #4 Vote NO; The mayor and city council is already paid enough. If I were to vote yes this should also mandate they be in council meeting 5 days a week. and firing the city manager.
Proposition #5 Vote NO;We should already have an Ethics amendment on file.
Proposition #6 The Civil service commission already has it's functions and duties laid out and does not need clarification. This gives the mayor and city manager too much power.
Proposition #7 Vote NO: this is covered by the state and federal government already and would supersede their laws which is against the laws of Texas.
Proposition #8 Vote NO:This puts too much power in the city managers and human resources hands.
Proposition #9 Vote NO: this does not give the voter enough power to override city council after we have voted for certain bond issues.

I had one hell of an experience at early voting yesterday. After I voted, I asked the lady working the table to use the restroom. She replied, "Number one or number two?" I was taken aback by that question and didn't respond so she said, "Do you have to crap or just piss?" I told her I didn't like to discuss my toilet habits with others so she showed me the room and told me to be quick because that was the only bathroom they had for all the workers and voters. I was so incensed that she asked me that question about what I was going to do, so I proceeded to spend the next twenty minutes squeezing out a giant log and didn't bother to flush. I'm she she had one hell of a rude awakening when she went back in there but that serves her right for hassling me about my bowels. Also, I started a new tradition this year of putting that sticker they give you on my left butt cheek. It's kind of like a temporary tattoo.

I voted yes on every damn one of them. I love the government and think they're doing a bang up job. Also, I'm not homophobic like you and think gays should get benefits.
