Of Austin Bondage

Those crabgrass reactionaries at the Austin Neighborhoods Council are hosting a review of the city's bond election tonight. Planning Commission chair Dave Sullivan will describe how $90 million for a new, central Las Manitas is money well spent, while Carl Tepper will argue it just isn't enough. (Disclaimer: None of the above arguments will actually happen. Consult your doctor if swelling or leakage occurs.) Also on hand will be the Bond Election Advisory Committee's Tom Terkel, and North Austin Civic Association president Linda Moore. NACA is especially wed to Prop 3's $8.9 million for a North Austin Community Center.

"Networking" starts at 6:45, program at 7pm. Austin Energy building, 721 Barton Springs Road
