I believe it matters who is on your city council because its members decide on annexations, growth, and development.
How a city develops should focus on improving neighborhoods, traffic, services, and commerce. Last Thursday, Greenville's council went against reasoned objections to grow the city without concern for the future residents in that area or the burden it would place on the city's current population.
We're all in this together.
