C.H. Johnson comments on:
Do we think the mayor is showing his true colors? He apparently has so little regard for the citizens of Weatherford that he insults them, from the dais, in a city council meeting. His petulant comments are like a child that is afraid of not getting his way. The mayor obviously thinks the citizens are idiots, incapable of making their own decisions. He definitely “drank the Koolaid” when elected Mayor and is now convinced the citizens can’t possibly know what’s good for them.
What, or whom, is behind this push for the Zion Hill annexation? That huge development at the corner of Zion Hill Road and the Ric Williamson is currently outside the city limits. Was the developer promised annexation to obtain city utilities for his homes? Who else wants to build what in this area? The attempted Brock annexation was a weird, gerry-mandered acreage. Again, who was wanting this land for what? “Follow the money” seems to be the course of action the Zion Hill residents need to pursue. This newest attempt at annexation must be pretty important for City Hall to be pushing as hard as they are. Why the rush? Who’s behind it? Who in the City stands to gain, financially, if the annexation is successful? What is being hidden from the public’s view?
