Of the seat that is contested, there is a very clear division between the two candidates regarding the future growth of Rowlett. One is for almost total urbanization of Rowlett, a la Rowlett 2020. The other is for selected urban type development only in suitable areas and the balance of Rowlett's development as determined by market conditions.
I will soon post the two opposing views and my opinion of how the candidates will fit into their position, if elected. The citizens of Rowlett will have an excellent opportunity to cast their vote on the future of Rowlett. It will not be divisive in immediately changing the course currently in practice. However, it can certainly provide a signal of any displeasure in the way things are going and change the course in the next election. Any message that change is desired is going to have to involve more voters than the 1500-2000 that usually control Rowlett. This would be a great time to "get involved." Important voting is good heart medicine and you feel a part of your community. It keeps you young. You begin to whistle while you work. And, if you can't whistle, go buy a new Corvette. .........right after you vote.
