I am a Union County public school teacher who lives in the Somerset neighborhood. I have been involved in the Wal-Mart fight for so many years...as we have been residents since 1999.
Now that Parker Mills has been elected, I only hope that Mr. Openshaw will work doubly hard to provide a balance and convince the county that this unrestrained growth is only hurting our little slice of heaven in Union County.
If the residents could only see the swelling halls in Sun Valley High School, or how the fields that used to be fallow are now huge subdivisions. They are cropping up EVERYWHERE and there is no financial assistance for the schools to handle the influx. A Wal-Mart SuperCenter is not the answer...especially when the proposed site behind our subdivision would require 18-wheeler trucks to zoom past our playground, tennis courts, adn swimming pool where our elementary-age children play. How could the county advocate this? Surely, Union County is not becoming anti-family. It is mindboggling. Please, Mr. Mills, I beg of you to recognize that pro-growth can be done in more family-oriented ways. Help our children and our schools. Don't let Wal-Mart come to Marvin!
