Our Water Our Future Ironically Delivered By Fort Worth's Former Mayor & Rosie
Anonymous has left a new comment on your post "A Comment From A TRWD Progaganda Shill Has Me Feeling Chesapeake Energy Deja Vu":
Check out the horrible photo editing around the heads of Mayor Betsy & Mayor Mike. Photochop indeed.
I clicked on the Anonymous link, with no clue what "owof" might be, to find that which you see above, a smiling couple, Betsy Price and Mike Moncrief.
Eventually, I figured out what "owof" is via the copyright blurb at the bottom of the website's one and only page....

Our Water, Our Future, brought to you by Fort Worth's former mayor and his wife.
The political advertisement paid for by the Our Future PAC is yet one more shameless, shameful propaganda piece raising the bogus specter of Dallas businessman boogeyman, Monty Bennett's, devious, nefarious plot to take over Fort Worth's water by spending millions of dollars.
The propaganda actually cites the equally shameless, shameful Star-Telegram, as if that newspaper is a legitimate news source saying, "As has been extensively reported in the Fort Worth Star-Telegram, Mr. Bennett wants to take control of our local water board and has already spent an estimated $4 million in election, lobbying and legal costs trying to get control of our local water board."
Extensively reported in the Star-Telegram?
Nothing is extensively reported in the Star-Telegram. And the Star-Telegram's reporting regarding the TRWD board's shenanigans has been particularly weak and one-sided.
Apparently the TRWD board incumbents can not run on their record. And so the Dallas straw man is needed as a bogus issue. The TRWD board incumbents' public relations propaganda people must have done research that has shown them that using the Dallas boogeyman will have traction with those few voters who will bother to vote in the upcoming election.
From the TRWD board incumbents we hear about the evil Dallas businessman spending millions to take control of Fort Worth's water, forcing the TRWD to spend millions to defend itself from the myriad lawsuits filed against them by the evil Dallas businessman.
But, we hear nothing from the TRWD board incumbents about the millions of dollars they caused to be spent suing Oklahoma in a ridiculous attempt to take water from the north side of the Red River.
We hear nothing from the TRWD board incumbents, particularly Jim Lane, about the millions of TRWD dollars spent to buy land from a bankrupt friend of Jim Lane's, with the millions paid being double the market value of the land, some of which was turned into the world's first drive-in movie theater of the 21st century.
We hear nothing from the TRWD board incumbents about the lack of progress of the Trinity River Vision Boondoggle.
How about an explanation from the TRWD board incumbents as to how three simple little bridges being built over dry land can take an amazing four years to build?
Those are just a few examples of the TRWD board incumbents' real record, and that real record is what the voters should be talking about and focused on, rather than giving any credence to propaganda about a Dallas businessman trying to take control of the TRWD board and Fort Worth's water.
Below I will copy all the propaganda from the Our Water, Our Future website for your perusal. See how many lies and ridiculous items of extreme exaggeration you can spot in the following Orwellian propaganda....
WATER IS OUR MOST PRECIOUS RESOURCE
This May’s Tarrant Regional Water Board election is probably one of the most important elections in the history of our city, our region, our future and for generations to come. Truly, our water is our future.
While the rest of Texas has struggled through the sustained drought, our local residents and businesses have benefited from TRWD’s prudent planning and management of our local water supply. In fact, TRWD now owns 4 lakes and has water rights in another 3 lakes across North and East Texas.
HOWEVER, A DALLAS BUSINESSMAN WANTS TO CONTROL OUR LOCAL WATER
Two of TRWD’S Board members are up for re-election this May: Marty Leonard and Jim Lane. Marty and Jim are being opposed by a slate of candidates financed by a Dallas businessman (Monty Bennett).
As has been extensively reported in the Fort Worth Star-Telegram, Mr. Bennett wants to take control of our local water board and has already spent an estimated $4 million in election, lobbying and legal costs trying to get control of our local water board.
You may have received some inaccurate information about the Water Board, please know this FALSE information was paid for by Mr. Bennett.
VOTE TO SAVE OUR WATER
Vote FOR Marty Leonard and Jim Lane in the Tarrant Regional Water Board Election on May 9th. Your vote will keep Tarrant County’s water supply safe and secure for current and future generations.
If we let this Dallas businessman get control, our future water supply will be jeopardized.
