To the Editor:
John Newman’s response in Thursday’s paper to the “Left Behind” article makes me feel like I was invited to the Range Restaurant for their most expensive dinner and wines, then being told “I am concerned about your finances. To give you a chance to show you are solvent, I am going to let you pay for our dinner.” Please spare me the pretend concern for the south side homeowners.
Rather than presenting citizens in south Salado with a chance to gain liberation and self determination, the proposed dis-annexation boundaries gut the finances of the city and appear designed simply to allow a group to avoid paying for the sewer. Otherwise, why draw the dis-annexation to include all the way to Royal? Why be so eager to litigate liability for the sewer bond that you announce the desire long before the vote takes place?
