You don't know what you've got till it's gone

We will sincerely miss Dr. Bob Cluck, our mayor of 12 years.  The election results are in, and Jeff Williams, civil engineer and businessman, received 58% of the vote.   As Joni Mitchell wrote, "You don't know what you've got till it's gone."  

So now, as Arlington, TX changes regimes, we'd like to dedicate this song to Jeff Williams.  He plans to develop the City, particularly the area around AT&T Stadium.  We also suspect that the Oil & Gas industry will continue to experience a very favorable climate in Arlington since word has it that many industry men helped with his campaign.

This song is also dedicated to our friend, Carol, who supported our efforts and loved walking amongst nature and the wildflowers.  She left this world on May 4th after a battle with cancer. 

Democracy in Texas also died on May 4th when HB40 passed in the Senate.  Denton citizens fought long and hard for their fracking ban, but our State will not have the people deciding what is best for their communities any longer.  How ironic is it that 58% of the people could vote in a new mayor, yet 58% are not allowed to say that zoning heavy industrial mining next to communities is unacceptable.
