Want to help bring crowds and draw more attention to San Antonio's Plug-In 2012? We'd appreciate it! It's six days away. Here is our latest correspondence with San Antonio media, focusing mostly on getting people to attend Public Night. I like to tell people that some 1,300 people attended Public Night in So Cal last year. Scroll down and you'll see the Ride-n-Drive/press conference media alert. Please distribute early and often, far and wide, if you have the time. Use some or all of the below. FYI, the San Antonio Express News plans to attend, TX Public Radio wants an interview on Friday, and Mark Duvall was interviewed by the Wall Street Journal yesterday. I've notified all local media, from TV to online, and all major national EV reporters and bloggers, among others.  Thanks much,Zan
