You make us all more aware of what's going on that the mayor and city council are NOT running to the press to say "LOOK AT ME!!!"

I'm not interested in the counterproductive comparative stuff. My mistake for mentioning it. I love College Station. Raised my family here. Grew a business here. I love Bryan, too. We're all very blessed. I was just pointing out the two cities have a different strategy to get at the same goal: quality of life. No one is running laps around anyone, in my opinion.

Where we could definitely improve dramatically for the taxpayer is working better together. I try everything I know to do to get us there, and always will.

Duly noted but will have to agree to disagree on the topic of the first sentence. I work with both cities every day and see it vastly different.

I agree with your second sentence and appreciate your efforts. Hell if it were up to me the cities would merge and really save the taxpayers some money!

Our favorite councilmember poster was on WTAW this morning and this board was discussed a bit. Great job, Councilman Yancy.

So, so true. It's way beyond time to create a county wide Fire/EMS entity and stop all the chargeback debates and slow response times to incidents that occur near city limits because the 911 operators are not sure where a person is EXACTLY. Having lived in a county on two occasions where the Fire/EMS were one, it makes way too much sense. Eliminate one management multi layer, and spend more on field coverage. Stop the "turf" issues and put the citizens first.
