TOP Endorses SAWS Accountability Act!
San Antonio, Texas: The SAWS Act PAC, which leads the petition effort for a public vote for the SAWS Accountability Act, issued the following statement about Texas Organizing Project’s endorsement announcement of the SAWS Accountability Act.
Alice Canestaro-Garcia, active in TOP’s climate justice campaign said, “Taking on a billion dollar agency – SAWS – that has become a loyal cash cow for developer interests requires all communities to come together, so we welcome TOP’s endorsement. TOP’s values are the communities’ values, Agua Es Vida.” Alice also serves as the co-treasurer for SAWS Act PAC
Reinette King, a spokesperson for SAWS Act PAC said, “We are excited TOP has endorsed the SAWS Accountability Act and the petition. In the midst of a very partisan election, we are conservatives and progressives working together in unity for one thing: transparency at SAWS for 1.8 million rate payers.”
