It appears to me that the current leaders in control of transforming the city of Kerrville have their own private agendas.  The members of the city council, as I recall, either work in or are associated with real estate.  I have not read anything about a possible “conflict of interest” but I suppose that had already been discussed prior to the acceptance of the new housing addition.  These individuals would naturally have an interest in the possibility of 500-plus homes that would require selling — and generating revenue.  Insuring more opportunities for Realtors and real estate services.  

 The other leaders of the community (EIC and KCVT) have their own agendas pushing for new businesses and homes for the incoming masses of workers.  Although there may not be an obvious monetary value, it will provide major accomplishment for personal resume’s and personnel records.

 I am sure there will be future discussions by the above mentioned leaders to discuss retailers.  A retailer that has not been mentioned would be the Sam’s Club wholesale store.  I think it would surprise everyone to know how many people make the trip to San Antonio to purchase food items at a tremendous savings over the local stores.

The self-serving agenda is obvious to those that are not low information voters and we WILL reflect our disgust at the voting booth.
