Universal City's $30 Million Dollar Street Bond Proposal

Lack Of Fiscal Transparency · Controlling The Narrative

This will be on the ballot in November 2022

What Does The City Of Universal City Not Want You To Know?

City Manager Kim Turner believes the list of streets potentially slated for work should not be released to the voters, as they will likely vote against the proposal if their street is not on the list.

Public Works Director Randy Luensmann questions how supportive voters will be if their street has already been done.

The people, in delegating authority, do not give their public servants the right to decide what is good for the people to know and what is not good for them to know. The people insist on remaining informed so that they may retain control over the instruments they have created.

Public Works Director Luensmann read off a list of streets, while the city’s attorney Megan Santee looked on attentively.

City Manager Kim Turner displays a list of street names, streets in “poor or very poor” condition. City Attorney again looks on attentively.

City Attorney Megan Santee’s colleague, Cynthia Trevino, submitted written arguments to the Office of the Attorney General seeking to DENY CITIZEN ACCESS to ANY AND ALL of the lists cited above, claiming that for residents to know which roads are considered to be in poor or very poor condition would expose the city to a potential risk of terrorism.

"The Requested Information contains details of road plans. These assets are vital to the public health and safety. The responsive information identifies the technical details of particular vulnerabilities. The release of the data would unnecessarily expose the details and thereby expose the City to a potential risk of an act of terrorism."

The response from the Attorney General’s Office will likely come AFTER the election.

City Manager Kim Turner acknowledges that resident Bernard Rubal has already reviewed the comprehensive street condition list with the Public Works Director.

What Is The City Of Universal City Trying To Hide? Good Question!

What happens if the bonds are voted down? Look at Judson ISD. What did they do? They brought it back again. UC can do the same thing. Streets need to be fixed, of that, there is no doubt! Do we need to approve $30 million dollars now for 12-15 years? Could we approve less for a shorter time span? Do we perhaps need to approve MORE?

Please keep in mind when you read the glossy Gateway "Voter Information Material" that this will likely be the SOLE SOURCE of information you will have access to, because, that’s all the city wants you to know. The citizens have a duty to cast an "informed" vote. Do your due diligence. If you can...
