What to Watch For
In order to understand Lovejoy politics and real estate purchases, the reader must first educate themselves on Plunkett of Tammany Hall, especially the chapters on
Honest & Dishonest Graft.
Trends to keep an eye on..
Lucas residents strongly oppose tax increases and infrastructure costs brought about by allowing sewer into Lucas. (more houses, overcrowding in schools, more traffic, more roads, increased utility costs, more crime, more commercial needed to support all the infrastructure costs) Lucas was established as a city with room for kids to roam with 2-acre lots.
Lovejoy ISD superintendent has requested that Lucas supply sewer to the middle school site in Lucas, and now a proposed elementary site on 2170. Hart elementary right down the road with more students runs fine on septic.
Developers have been trying to get their candidates on council to push for sewer for years, and Lucas residents so far have outsmarted them.
Spring & Summer 2010
Lovejoy ISD runs two LISD employees' husbands for city council, claiming it's NOT ABOUT SEWER!
The husbands are defeated by city council incumbents with a strong anti-sewer voting record.
Lovejoy ISD ignores Lucas resident wishes and goes around the city of Lucas directly to North Texas Muncipal Water District for sewer.
