Missing deadline, annexation group eyeing May 2019

After missing the July deadline to get enough signatures to place it on the November ballot, proponents of an annexation petition are now turning their sights to May. Louis Ponder, who has been at the forefront of encouraging Ellis County residents to sign a petition to turn the county into a “Tier 2” county, is more than familiar with city’s ability to annex land. His largely undeveloped ranch land was annexed by the City of Midlothian. Ponder said voters can find petition books at locations throughout the county, or, they can simply download and print the blank petition from the website www.StopAnnex.org. Sign it, get others to sign it, and contact the team to pick it up, petitioners encouraged. Some in the petition movement call it “taxation without representation,” a notion that sparked the original American Revolution. Others echo the founding fathers’ demand for “consent of the governed” recorded in the Declaration of Independence. Read stories like this and more in your latest edition of The Ennis News.
