Williams hopes to see improvements in the city

 

Editor’s note: The following letter was submitted in May. Due to website glitch, The Record received the letter this month.
 
Dear Editor,
 
I would like to congratulate Mayor Sara Post Meyer for her victory. She taught me in my senior year at Cuero High School. 
 
I ran as a concerned citizen of Cuero. There are issues I was made aware of by several citizens. The Lower Colorado River Authority new utility contract starts in 2016 through 2041. Why is the electric service not deregulated so choices can be made from different providers? There should be a fire station with a couple of fire trucks and an EMS unit west of the railroad. Several streets were torn up when contractors replaced water and sewer lines, but the roads were left in poor condition. We have street signs all over town that are missing or not legible. The inspectors write up properties that need cleaning up but what about the old abandoned railroad trestles that are dangerous if kids play on them? What about the Union Pacific storage yard with old railroad ties and rail switches near the old oil mill ditch? 
 
I hope the councilmen will check out their districts and make improvements. 
 
I would also like to thank The Cuero Record for publishing my profile for the mayor race. 
 
Sincerely,
 
Russell L. Williams
 
Cuero
