If elected, what Leon Tuttle will do

I interviewed Rockwall County Commissioner Precinct 3 candidate and former three-term Rockwall Mayor Leon Tuttle two days ago on my weekly Sat. 9-11 am talk radio show “When Love Hurts” on AM 1400.  I was impressed with his interest in establishing a safe house for family violence victims, for finding or creating a budget to educate the community to combat family violence plus draft an ethics code for all County elected officials and employees, especially in view of the troubles we’ve seen with our District Attorney indicted on numerous financial charges and the County Treasurer “borrowing” funds for her personal use. “Mayor” Tuttle may be retired but has plenty of energy left to add to his long list of accomplishments in Rockwall, it appears to me. He also wants to develop a five and ten-year plan for expanding County facilities to keep pace with the rapid growth, work together with the State and County committees to repair and build the necessary roads, plus keep taxes low. That will be a challenge! He told us that it took 25 years for voters to finally decide to allow the City and County to make the current highway and road improvements. They didn’t want to tear down trees, change the landscape or have so many one-way streets! Can’t blame them on the one hand, but now that traffic is such a mess, officials and voters should have better planned for the the future.  They certainly haven’t discouraged growth, which now seems almost out-of-control, much like Frisco.
