WHY ARE WE DOING THIS?
We have heard reports that there are several Texas state Senators or Representatives who are crafting bills regarding smart meters. The purpose of this “Citizen Lobbyist” phase of our efforts are twofold:
1.) We want to be able to influence that legislation.
2.) Educate our Senators and Representatives to be aware of the true nature of the meters so that they will vote appropriately when time comes for the passage of legislation.
For this effort www.BanTexasSmartMeters.com has teamed up with www.Texansagainstsmartmeters.com to begin the training of citizens that desire to help make a real change & impact on our TEXAS legislature regarding the issue of FORCED illegal smart meter installation. This training will teach you how to become a citizen lobbyist (regardless of cause!). Think about WHO has the ear of the legislators ... "lobbyists" !!! The difference in them & CITIZEN Lobbyists is that our special interests are OUR Constitutional Freedoms & the payoff is our SOVEREIGNTY !!!
We will provide you with a presentation packet that has already been given out to people such as the Lt Gov of Texas, the PUC & the Senate Committee that heard the interim charge on Oct. 9th. These Smart Meter Educational Materials will be presented in an organized & unified way to your Texas State Senator and Representative.
Our goal is to have a minimum of two smart meter activists per State Senator and Representative that are THEIR constituents as this is who they really want to hear from.
We will teach you how to present the "white papers" put together by TASMs (Texans Against Smart Meters), & how to do the follow up needed. We also have Patriots that are working on writing the legislation to be presented.
This course will teach you how to make a bigger impact on the Legislation than the "special interest lobbyists". After all WE the People of Texas are who VOTE them in or out !!
So as you can see, covering all of Texas is a lofty goal, and we will need lots of help. It really is not difficult once you are trained on how to approach your elected officials with what to say, and how to follow up. The more teams we can put together all over Texas the stronger of an impact we will make…We need everyone! This is not a new program, as there are already previously trained grass roots groups that made an impact last legislative session. This training is headed by a 'retired" special interest lobbyist that has now become an awesome PATRIOT for Texas & he is sharing his expertise in this area with us.
Thanks to all who are willing to participate. Our freedom to choose depends on it! If you cannot be on the webinar, but are interested in participating- send an email to: email@example.com and let me know so I can get you the essential information so you can have the information packet to give to your State Rep and Senator.
Please distribute to others that you feel might also be willing to help with this task-including posting on social networking sites as well.
God Bless TEXAS
