Carter Casteel runs away from her record of tolling

It’s always interesting to watch a politician who has sold out his/her constituents in favor of special interests back pedal in an election year…Rep. Carter Casteel, District 73, is officially one of them. She’s on Mike Krusee’s Transportation Committee, voted to toll us for FREEways we’ve already paid for, voted AGAINST accountability to the voters for tolling, and had her colleagues at the Comal County Commissioners Court convinced she was against tolls. Well guess what? We’re happy to spread the word about her very UN-conservative record. Comal County and the other rural counties in her district are all dependent on highways to get into San Antonio to go to work. In fact, 67% of Bulverde residents commute into San Antonio EVERY DAY, the majority of them take US 281 which is scheduled to be the first toll road in SA!

Sorry, Carter Casteel…the cat’s out of the bag. We know the truth about your record and we’ll be shouting it from the rooftops to make sure you don’t go back to the legislature to betray us again! One of the questions in the survey revealed her record voting to toll existing freeways and further proliferate tolls.

State Representative Carter Casteel (R-New Braunfels) responded today to a “push poll” being conducted in House District 73, which includes Bandera,Comal, Gillespie, and Kendall Counties. The polling questions misrepresented Casteel’s conservative values and voting record as a member of the Texas House of Representatives.”I have had many calls about the ‘push poll’ conducted last week,” Casteel said. “‘Push polls’are political telemarketing, not public opinion surveys. The ‘poll’ questions were designed tomisrepresent my conservative values and voting record as your state representative.””I have always had an ‘open door’ policy. If you want to know where I stand, just ask,” Casteel said.
