To the Editor:

Killeen is big and modern enough to have seven districts represented by seven council members elected at-large. Electing council members under the same criteria will provide a better representative government for all of us.

        What exactly are their minority political objectives? Let's be real. Seven at-large members is a formula to ensure city's players get what they want as city grows to south. North Killeen already gets overlooked as it is. How much improvement has happened in terms of infrastructure and amenities for those living there? Everything is run down and falling apart but Killeen wants to gloss over that and look towards the south as the new frontier. Demographics on Rancier may be diverse in terms of color. But there's no denying that the person living there likely will not be the homeowner in a subdivision down Hwy. 195. That's where all the new amenities and growth are projected to occur & players need an at-large council with their people at the helm to make that happen.
