My name is Dennis Garrett and I am both a property owner and manage a 500 acre ranch on Middle Creek Rd. My wife and I plus 36 owners of Middle Creek Ranch are against building the proposed bridge. Approximately 92% of the landowners on this road are also against it.

Commissioner Granberg has not been able to prove to us that this project is warranted. Paul told me last month inside Blanco Auto Parts that he was not running for commissioner again; this was his last term. I asked him to do the right thing and support and represent the majority of tax paying/ voting citizens that are against this project. Does he not want to be remembered for doing the right thing as a commissioner?

The bridge being built on THIS road does not make sense. I can think of 4 people who are for it, excluding Granberg. Several people in town were verbally threatened by the few that are for it for simply signing the petition to stop the bridge. When the property owner spoke to the commissioners court in favor of the bridge she was not honest with all her statements and grossly exaggerated many.

I have lived here for 14 years and love this county road, especially the little drive through the creek. There are not many places left like this in America. I have seen it impassable approximately 3 times in 14 years. If I were the county and the property owners I would fight to preserve that area for history’s sake and not destroy the beauty of it.
