Q&A: Race for Annetta mayor

(Continued)

I will settle this annexation issue. Right now there are 450 homes in the ETJ (Parker County area and not in the city.) They have 1,200 citizens in them. That would double the size of Annetta and possibly raise Annetta’s taxes. I would put an annexation plan in place. I would do a case study and study the all the facts if this would be good for Annetta.

Are you for or against annexation of area residents served by the city’s water system? Why?

First of all, I do not believe all the citizens of Annetta know that Bruce Pinckard has been trying to push through the annexation without letting the actual citizens of Annetta know. They deserve to know and have a say if they would like to see the town of Annetta double it’s size overnight from 1,200 to 2,400. I am for the annexation if we put an annexation plan in place and do a case study to make sure this annexation is good for the City of Annetta and know the citizens of Annetta would like this as well.

If the citizens of Annetta do not want this and, after studies have been done, this plan is not good for Annetta then no I do not want this annexation. This annexation has a due process to go through. Anyone who wants to rush this through is not working for the citizens of Annetta. I work for and serve the citizens of Annetta. I am responsible to them first.

Why do you believe you are the best candidate for the position? What separates you from your opponent?

I am the best candidate for mayor of Annetta. I have a strong business background, and in managing a company and people and employers. I know how to get projects done. I have immense experience in taking a project from beginning to end. I am completer and a finisher. I know what is good for a city.
