Subject: Macquaire Media Group acquisition of American Consolidated Media

The recent offer by Macquarie Media Group to purchase American Consolidated Media (including Valley Newspapers Holdings) raises considerable concern in Texas. represents thousands of members who reside in 199 counties across Texas who are challenging the wisdom of the Trans Texas Corridor.

We bring the following facts to your attention:

All of this generates more questions than answers.

Naturally our chief concern is that Macquarie Bank, though one of it's MMG subsidiary, has put itself in a position to attempt to manipulate public opinion by using a virtual monopoly of rural Texas media to improperly benefit another of it's subsidiaries, MIG.

Your consideration is appreciated.

Respectfully Submitted,

David Stall
