In the interest of better informing voters where candidates stand on issues related to open-pit mining, quarries, and other aggregate plants, Preserve Our Hill Country Environment, Stop 3009 Vulcan Quarry, and Friends of Dry Comal Creek have developed and sent a candidate questionnaire to eight candidates running in the upcoming November 2018 general election.

Candidates are asked to answer four questions and state their positions on issues related to the protection of residents and natural resources from the hazards of aggressive expansion and insufficient permitting, monitoring, and supervision of the aggregate industry.

All candidates certified by the Texas Secretary of State and/or Comal County Clerk, including third party and write-in candidates will be included in the results:

The questionnaire was sent to the following candidates:

Candidates have until October 15 to submit responses, which will then be included verbatim in the results we compile and report on our website, email lists, and social media properties in late October. Candidates who do not reply will be marked as “No response received.” Any candidate not receiving a questionnaire should promptly contact stop3009vulcanquarry@gmail.com.

Preserve Our Hill Country Environment is a nonprofit organization (501(c)4 status pending) formed to restore, protect, and preserve the land, water, air, and other natural resources of the Texas Hill Country.
