A time to say thanks to everyone who voted against the annexation. Now is the time to push for the incorporation of Semmes with no time to lose. Every effort needs to be made to expedite the process and get the incorporation approved within the shortest possible time. We cannot give Prichard or Mobile any incentive to try to take us over, so we must stop them in their tracks without delay.

People in Semmes used to say no to incorporation because they liked it "like it is". I think Mobile's underhanded, sneaky, unethical push for annexation proves to everyone in Semmes that it's not a matter of keeping it like it is. It's a matter of being in charge of our own destiny or being swallowed up on the next annexation push by Jones. The next time, instead of 450 voters that determine our fate, it will be 1/2 that.

Hi Renee -- you are so right! Keeping Semmes "like it is" is no longer an option. I think that the people in Semmes have seen how fast their lives can be changed in Mobile's last annexation attempt.

The only way we can come close to keeping Semmes "like it is" is to incorporate, form our own city, develop our own Planning Commission, subdivision regulations, municipal ordinances -- basically form our own local government with local leadership. We need to choose local leaders who share our vision of what Semmes IS.

Friends of Semmes, we have only a few months ahead of us to accomplish our goal to incorporate. We must not procrastinate, not even for a short break! Sam Jones is now planning a new attack, even as you are reading this today! WE must set a time to meet, organize, and work a plan of action to deliver the fight that STOP's Sam Jones square in his underhanded tracks.

THE TIME IS NOW!

I say thanks to all that have led to this point! I must remind everyone winning is about finishing, and we are not done yet. So letÂ’s keep moving, victory is certain if we will not blink. NOW, IS THE TIME!

MEETING TIME IS NEEDED NOW!

By the way, did I say how important it is to the Friends of Semmes to act NOW, yes NOW! A.S.A.P.!
