Do a little Research People!!!!
Hey...Don't blame a neighborhood that actually out votes the rest of San Marcos in every other election. They also have a Home Owners association and each section has a home owner's leader. Don't knock taking responsibility for yourself instead of relying on a City to do it for you. They out voted the rest of the city and worked together, unlike current San Marcos Residents who don't care. As for the deannexation, the city was providing them with a dog catcher....that's it. They were not putting in sewer or water or electricity. They were making them pay taxes without giving them the basics. Before pct 315 was annexed, they mobilized and contacted everyone from congressional levels to local govt levels to fight for what they believed. Also, Mayor Habingreither implemented many of the projects that we are seeing accomplished today because he was planning for the cities future. he focused on basic needs like a waste water treatment plant (because we are out growing ours), replacing deteriorating pipes in our neighborhoods. Re-building roads and putting in overpasses. He had also secured some of the Toyota 2nd and 3rd tier part suppliers to come to San Marcos, but his plan was not carried on after leaving office and they wen't somewhere else. Before you knock a man that actually understands all the issues, even though they are not the "pretty issues (the ones that you see and make your life nicer to look at), take the opportunity to study the history of San Marcos politics and the issues. For too long, people in this town have listened to the rumors. I feel like I live in a school yard playground sometimes playing telephone. DO THE RESEARCH BEFORE YOU SPEW LIES!
