Texas 21st District Focus: Travis, Kerr, Real, Bandera, Kendall, Comal and Blanco Counties
For all my Texas Readers: CRITICAL: Three things you can do to help save Texas public schools...I will never understand why Republicans hate education so much. It has been shown over and over that strong education programs reduce poverty, crime and drug use, yet Republicans seem to prefer poverty, crime and drug use to supporting education
Here are some Democratic groups and resources in the 21st Congressional District:

ALTERNATIVE ENERGY THROUGH BANDERA ELECTRIC COOPERATIVE:
If you want to support clean, safe, AMERICAN energy that produces jobs right here in America, you can buy wind energy through Bandera Electric Cooperative's WindWorks Program:
By investing in another clean source of power, we are investing in our future. But perhaps most important, by taking a leadership role in supporting renewable energy, we are contributing to a healthier environment for this generation ... and the next.
BEC received an overwhelming response from our Members regarding purchasing renewable energy. At your request, we have purchased over 200% more wind energy than in years prior, resulting in a total of 20 million kilowatt-hours (kWh’s) being bought each year. For more information or to sign up for the BEC Wind Works, visit with a Member Accounts Representative at any BEC Business Office, call 866-226-3372, or download this application and fax or mail to:

BIODIESEL IN THE 21ST DISTRICT:
I also want to highlight Biodiesel stations in and around the 21st District. Biodiesel is less polluting and has a smaller carbon footprint than regular diesel, and is produced right here in the USA. Biodiesel can be used in almost any diesel engine. Up to B20 (a 20 percent blend) any diesel engine, whether car or 18 wheeler or whatever, can use it. Above B20 some older engines may have problems, but newer engines should be ok.
