Vote for Bastrop to get a reality-TV makeover

Thursday, February 15, 2018

Yay Bastrop! Downtowns are one of the best assets cities have for economic development, and being selected for the reality TV show “Small Business Revolution — Main Street” would be a great endorsement of the city’s efforts.

Here’s how all Central Texans can help Bastrop win a spot on the show and a $500,000 makeover of downtown:

  • Vote daily at between now and Feb. 20.
  • Spread the word of the competition on Facebook and Twitter using the hashtags #MyBastrop and #MyTexas.
  • Sign up for voting reminders by texting MYBASTROP to 48421.

On Feb. 13, Deluxe Corp., a small-business marketing and financial firm, named Bastrop one of the top five finalist to be the star of the show’s third season after narrowing down its possible selection from 10,000 nominations nationwide. The show will stream on Hulu and Youtube and follow the winning town’s $500,000 small-business makeover. The final selection process for winning the makeover is a public vote ending Feb. 20.
