Our Town has always been held back by our city government.. All that they will not allow because it may put out some of the local business. It makes me sick.. wish we had a Mayor that would get companies to come here. We definitely have the work force to support.. One should ask why do businesses move to Nashville.. Maybe we should look into their city government.

I agree 100% Our city government sucks. It's like living in the early 1800's. No wonder we can't get more industry in... No wonder all the young people are moving away and looking for work elsewhere.. We really need a reform in our city council and a Mayor who truly wanted to see the town grow... Not be invaded by illegals. geesh!

What ya'll got to realize is that the great city government has helped out industry in one respect. Pilgrim gets a wholesale discount on their city water costs because of the large amounts of water they use daily. In turn for that favor Pilgrim encourages illigal aliens to come to work for them (just like Tyson does) which forces our schools and police department to have to hire multilingual personnel, burdens our school system, food stamp program, ect. because they sure don't pay their fair share of taxes. Not to mention the increase in automobile insuraunce rates (because most illigals son't have it so the others pay for it in an accident)and so on. And lets not forget to mention Pilgrim burdens their growers more every year by making them do expensive,unnecessary upgrades to their chicken houses without increaseing the amount they pay the growers per pound except maybe once every 10 years or so. At the end of the day the only ones who have made out are the illigals in DeQueen and Bo Pilgrims family who proudly call Pittsburg, Texas home.
