Ask The Mayor


Mayor Hal Richards

Q - With the Trans Texas Corridor gaining some steam, and with the help of Lou Dobbs making this a nationally known problem, what is Terrell doing in order to keep this out of our back yard?


It's very obvious that Gov. Rick Perry is not listening to the citizens of Texas but rather listening to his bank account get bigger with the help of Guiliani. What dothe citizens of Terrell need to do to stop this travesty?


Answer - Thanks for your question.


This is more a State of Texas issue than it is a City issue, but I will be glad to share what I know about the situation.


I think most observers would agree in hindsight that the presentation of the Trans Texas Corridor concept to Texas Citizens was poorly done. As a result of the poor presentation it seems that the Trans Texas Corridor as originally presented is a dead issue.


The challenge for those who oppose the Corridor is to come up with a plan that will provided the mobility that is needed in Texas, particularly in that I-35 corridor. Something will have to be done soon to alleviate the congestion that will only get progressively worse.



Hal Richards, Mayor
