More to ETJ bill

This is in reference to the story about the extraterritorial jurisdiction Senate bill 949 from State Sen. Dan Soucek (“State Senate OKs bill ending Boone ETJ,” June 22).

First let me say, “thanks” Dan, for now I am an Independent. After you really pushed this to pass, it tells me that there is more than meets the eye for you wanting this bill to pass so badly. Someone will definitely benefit, and we will watch to see who will benefit by this, financially or otherwise.

But I can tell you this, I will work with others to see that you will not be re-elected, and that is for sure.

Second, I sure hope that Sen. Tom Apodaca of Hendersonville did not have a vote, since he does not like Watauga County because of Boone (not a very professional statement to make).

 Boone Mayor Loretta Clawson must speak up. This whole thing sounds like some back-room dealing and she must check it out and see who is at the bottom of this.

 Anyway, I hope it does not pass and contractors who continue to build will be restricted so as to not ruin the area and beauty of this land just for monetary reasons.
