Needing a commissioner

To the editor:

Why would county commissioner of Precinct 3 pave a street with thick blacktop when it was not needed? Maybe for votes. Why would same commissioner put in a bridge on a private road? Maybe for votes.

 Yet same commissioner put such a thin layer of blacktop on a small portion of Northshore that was rough to drive on and three weeks later when we got the big rain they had to patch holes. He has only topped portions of Northshore saying he was out of money. Yet he topped CR 3602 from 276 all the way to Highway 34 and it does not have near the traffic that is on Northshore.

 The cities of Hawk Cove and West Tawakoni and probably other cities have received any help from him at all. It is time the citizens of south Hunt County wake up and go to the polls and let our voices be heard.

We pay taxes same as citizens near Greenville so let’s get a commissioner that we will recognize when we see them in our area. We should have a commissioner who can stand on his own accomplishments and not the ones of someone else.
