Subject: IMPORTANT: for Texas Seniors...
You may be 65+ or you may not be 65, but you will be one day.
Even if not 65, you may have a parent or grandparent who is
and you need to vote for this issue for them. SO VOTE!
FOR US OLDER FOLKS!!
If you are a Texas homeowner then this
is important to you. If you agree, please
pass along to all in your email list who
are Texas residents.
Everyone needs to be aware of a
constitutional amendment that will be
on the ballot at the May election
It is an amendment to correct an
error made by the lawmakers when
they voted for a reduction in school
property taxes in 2005. When the law-
makers voted for a one-third reduction
of school property taxes beginning in
2006 and to be completed this year,
they forgot about the homestead
exemption for senior citizens and
people with disabilities. The state
constitution caps school property taxes
for homeowners 65 years or older
and those who are disabled. However,
they DID NOT get the same reduction
when the property tax cut for schools
was voted on two years ago. So an
amendment is on the May ballot to
correct this error.
The problem is that most voters who are
younger than 65 or not disabled probably
won't even notice the amendment or care.
PLEASE get out and vote for this
amendment ... if not for yourself, then for
your parents, grandparents, aunts, uncles
and friends. We would really appreciate
your getting the word out to all your
friends and families to vote for this amendment.
(VOTE FOR THIS AMENDMENT, if you meet the requirements,
if not DO NOT VOTE ON THIS AMENDMENT, PLEASE).
The fear is that with a low voter turnout,
the amendment could very well not pass.
So, please, please pass the word and vote FOR the constitutional
Early voting will take place
April 30-May 5 from 7 am to 7 pm
May 6 from noon to 6 pm, and
May 7-May 8 from 7 am to 7 pm.
Election day is
May 12 from 7 am to 7 pm.
Spread the word
