In the Chronicle
's Nov. 8 election coverage of Proposition 6 to fund future Texas water projects, your story incorrectly stated that I was part of an active campaign to prevent the measure from passing [“Prop. 6: Rainy Day Flows Downhill
,” News]. This is inaccurate. I was not part of the Nix Prop. 6 campaign, and never actually heard the name of the campaign until I read it in the story.
I did state at a public forum in October that I would not vote for Prop. 6, but would not take an active role in opposition because I did not want to oppose other environmental groups like Sierra Club and Environment Texas. There might have been 50 people at this event.
I have great respect for these environmental groups, who took a principled, though in my opinion, incorrect stand. This fall I was asked to join a press conference in opposition to this measure, but declined.
