This group of determined Bell County residents was formed to end the practice of unilateral (forced) annexation under Texas State Law, Chapter 43, Texas Local government code.
The mission of Empower Bell County Texans is to give a voice to Texans who object to laws that give elected officials in municipal government organizations more constitutional rights than the voters who elected them to office.
To form partnerships at all levels (city, county, and state) that protect the constitutional rights of Bell County residents and create solutions to preserve our heritage and develop our community.
2018 GOAL: Collect 20,000 registered voter signatures to petition the Bell County Commissioners to add a ballot measure for the November 6, 2018 election to END FORCED ANNEXATION IN BELL COUNTY, TEXAS!
Assist in collecting petition signatures and seeking partner businesses to host petition binders for a county wide vote in November 2018. Petitions are being printed by Bell County Clerks Office and should be available in early December 2017.
