Montgomery County Tea Party PAC endorses incorporation of The Woodlands as a city

The Golden Hammer Staff Reports

Conroe, October 4 – The Montgomery County Tea Party PAC endorsed the referendum in favor of incorporation of The Woodlands as a city in the November 2, 2021, General Election, Vetting Committee Chairman John Hill Wertz announced at their bi-weekly meeting on Monday night, October 4, 2021, in Conroe.

The Tea Party explained their reasoning behind supporting the formation of a new city government in The Woodlands:

  •   “Local Control – closest government governs best – local residential governmental control (mayor/city council) is always more effective than a more distant, diluted un-influential county government (commissioners court) inherently influenced by developers and by their own self interests.
  •   “Law Enforcement – 1st year, no change.  Years 2-5: Transition agreement to local control
  •   “Traffic Control – locally controlled by city (except State Hwy 242)
  •   “Road Planning, Maintenance & Speed Limits – Woodtrace (renamed from WPX) controls(no large trucks);

other than some dedicated left-turn lanes and flashing yellow lights, Pct. 3 commissioner really has done very

little for The Woodlands;

  •   “Ordinances – control over taxes, building codes, public safety, parking, noise & fireworks;
  •   “Development of Land/planning & tree preservation – while HHC has reportedly 8 more multi-family

developments in TW, we prefer Mitchells vision of no more high rises like Anadarko towers, only tree-top

buildings max in town center, not residential neighborhoods;

  •   “Drainage/Flooding – as a city, can establish and enforce drainage standards
  •   “Elected town or city officials – by and large, unpaid, like now (exception would likely be City

Manager, occupied now by TW President and other paid employees;

  •   “Annexation by City of Houston or Conroe – permanently eliminated.”
