"Oh what a tangled web we weave..."

Public office holders think tax dollars are for profit

Not representing me

Dear Editor,

It has been my observation throughout all the meetings of the past few years, that there are those who consistently present themselves as the arbiters of Oak Hill. They do not represent me (or anyone I know), or my thoughts on development in our neighborhood area. Let them chest beat and rail condescendingly, as I'm sure they will. Invalidating the community activist resident's voices is par for the course.

Enlisting lawyer/ex-Mayor/Senator and ex-Precinct Judges into the ranks of existing toll-developer players on commissions, tells us the stakes for self-enriching are high and they are upping the ante. Never mind the waste for profit--that's what public office holders think tax dollars are for it seems.

We simply want 290 expanded by two lanes with a simple single elevation, or recess, or roundabout at the "Y" to accommodate traffic, with some modest, local amenities, and to leave the beautiful Hill Country we all love clean and open so we can see, smell, hear and enjoy it. These convoluted plans we've been force-fed have too many masters... "Oh what a tangled web we weave.."

Oak Hill Resident
