Almost 1.2 million Texans in addition to myself went online and voted for our new state license plate design. I am proud to say the design I voted for “Lone Star Texas” was the clear winner capturing almost almost half the votes.
I suppose the Texas Department of Transportation wants to make sure no vote tampering occurred because they have yet to declare the results official. It was really all for fun anyway. Since the Texas Transportation Commission will be making the final decision on February 28th.
The new plates are needed because its projected that by the end of 2008 we will have exhausted our current six character combination plates. Its no wonder we are running out since the state of Texas’s population increases by roughly 1,000 people every day. In addition to a new plate design the number and letter combination will be increased from six to seven to accommodate these new Texans.
If you missed your chance to vote you are going to have wait longer than another four years. Based upon population projections, The Texas Department of Transportation anticipates the seven character combination pattern to last 35 years.
Don’t look for the new plates to be on my car anytime soon. Even though my favorite design “unofficially” won, I would have to pay for them since my plates are not seven years old. And I can find other things to buy for my car instead of plates like ….. GAS.

I have had the pleasure of partnering with Jill Wente on several real estate transactions. Her attention to detail and knowledge of the real estate industry are top notch! She is honest, straight forward, organized, and completely in tune with each of her transactions. She asks questions and truly listens to the information given to her and applies it in her future transactions. She is wonderful to work with and proves in each transaction that her top priority is that her clients are given the best customer service and are comfortable with each step of the process. She works proactively rather than reactively, and prepares herself for any questions her clients may have during the process, and does so before the question arises. Her clients are lucky to have her on their side! I look forward to any and all opportunities I have to partner with Jill in the future. read less
