Cynthia Alvidrez started this petition to Abilene City Council

The Abilene City Council has chosen to invest millions, upon millions of tax payer dollars into a downtown hotel. Meanwhile, Abilene city streets continue to be in disrepair, local fire and police departments are fighting a loosing battle when it comes to crime rates, and programs similar to the city's after-school care program, that provides affordable childcare to both working and middle class families, are on the brink of being shut down at every budget hearing.

Sadly to say, it is obvious that infrastructure and safety are NOT a priority of the Abilene City Council.

This hotel project will provide a thick lining for the pockets of the private sector.

Materials used: hard earned tax payer dollars. 

Millions of taxpayers monies will be issued in the forms of Certificates of Obligations. One common form of borrowing which some local governments can use to fund public works WITHOUT VOTER APPROVAL (https://comptroller.texas.gov/economy/fiscal-notes/2017/january/co.php

Abilene citizens will NOT have a VOICE.

Reclaim your sear. It's time your voice be heard.
