 Problem: In Fall 2009, LCRA needed to replace an inefficient power plant built in the 1970s on Lake LBJ. Horseshoe Bay, one of the most affluent and politically connected municipalities in Central Texas, had grown up around the plant, with homes starting at $1.5 million.“Robert’s disciplined, but passionate approach to public input made the difference.”

 Case Study #2:

Laying the groundwork for an historic, $2 billion regional water-sharing plan

Problem: A series of town hall meetings in 1995 surfaced deep hostility and suspicion in the Colorado River Basin about the possibility that the City of San Antonio would appropriate the river’s available water. The steward of the water, the Lower Colorado River Authority, believed it would be legally and politically impossible to stop San Antonio from its intention. A negotiated settlement was the best answer, but public opinion opposed dialogue.

“Robert Cullick is better than anyone I’ve seen at bridging the gap between the public and the technical issues. He is a two way translator…”

Problem: As Texas moved toward a competitive electric generation market in the late 1990s, regulators and consumer interests continued to demand public involvement in electric resource choices — whether utilities should invest in coal, gas, nuclear, wind or conservation.
