Thank you, Mike. Many of my neighbors have felt that City Council's office has behaved outrageously throughout our attempts to prevent more "scraping of Spring Branch". Council's office has used many more serious tactics to discourage dissention from her constituents, including public slander, calling resident's employers, or personally telling constituents not to get involved. This is very disappointing behavior from an elected official.

Here's another take on Councilmember Lawrence's behavior:

Also, let me be clear that those fighting making Bunker Hill a 5 lane road through the residential area are NOT against improving local mobility. We have brought suggestions before the Planning Commission that would have substantially improved traffic in the area. That this is true was substantiated by a presentation by LAN engineers at the last TIRZ meeting. Unfortunately, recommendations by the City and Council's office were in opposition. Since Council's office heads up the City's Planning Committee and also oversees all of the TIRZ's, it is very difficult to counter her recommendations, no matter how flawed.

The District A Council Member, Toni Lawrence should be THANKFUL to the SBISD Board of Trustees for sharing their concerns... which she stated during the meeting with SBCA members on AUG 17, 2006 at Woodview Elementary School, Bunker Hill - were also the concerns of the residents of this cherished neighborhood.

Knowing the high level of work load of this board, her GRATITUDE should have been REDOUBLED, considering the extra mile traveled by the SBISD Board of Trustees.

Thanks very much for posting this, Mike. The community needs to see our Councilmember's darker side. I was very taken aback by her attitude and choice of words.
