"Why do officials keep on trying to shove the TTC down our throats?"

Letter to the Editor: Public doesn't want tolls

My wife and I attended the Capital Area Metropolitan Planning Organization meeting in Austin on Oct. 10. Most, if not all, of the CAMPO board members have been elected to represent what the majority of their constituency wants.

Since April, I have talked to hundreds of individuals in eastern Williamson County, including ranchers and farmers in the Granger and Bartlett area, and many more people from Milam County, including Thorndale, Rockdale and Cameron. No one from these communities want the Trans Texas Corridor.

Why, then, when the majority of people in Central Texas do not want this massive toll road, do officials keep on trying to shove it down our throats?
