T eam: Campaigns are won by all the small things people do, such as writing letters to the editor, posting on news websites, such; or A virtual coordinated campaign is as simple as posting on your Facebook or Twitter account to all of your friends and driving them to other websites that support the 2012 Bond Election, Propositions 1, 2, and 3. It is just like block walking, and phone banking. At the time it may not seem like a great

deal but in close campaigns what you do matters. Grassroots Action Plan: Next Tuesday, September 18, 2012, City Council will make the decision to agree to the term sheet for our AAA Baseball Team, our Team. As you know the only ones that you ever hear about and see on the news are the naysayers and individuals who are telling us that El Paso is simply not smart enough or good enough to be a great City. We need a show of support. Look at it this way, if the 66 Miners walked out on to the floor against Kentucky with this same attitude there would not have even been a game. We shouldnt accept mediocrity and status quo. El Paso deserves better, we have a long history of winning and not just in sports.

Our entire region, including El Paso and Fort Bliss won in the Federal Base Realignment Process El Paso won in the Texas Legislative Process by Securing the First 4-Year Medical School at Texas Tech approved in the last 30 years. Spur 601 the First Pass Through Toll Road built in Texas has been an overwhelming success and is a model for other communities on how to build their road infrastructure. These are only some examples of our community winning. We know how to win, this is our time to shine. Take action

Simply stated for an average of $40 a year, El Paso will get over $500 million in new things to do, new places to visit, and a new place to play.
