Many perspectives, well-considered at the LAFCO meeting, provided LAFCO commissioners and neighbors in the audience an overall view of what makes our region dynamic. Although Alamo remains undefined, many ideas were shared about who we are and how we wish to voice our local priorities.
We are more a region contained in cities, spheres of influence and county areas than a single community easily described as Alamo. We are many cultures and political preferences. We are not our past as a semi-rural community and we are less together in our moves toward urban luxury.
Considering incorporation has been a catalyst for community definition and voice. In every step over the past seventeen months, a clearer divergence of perspectives has grown and more definition of our roles in government have diversified into many points of view.
Now, we must come together as voters and define our choice for local goverment. As of last night, that definition falls to the voters and must be in place before we cast our ballots. If we cannot define a scope of goverment that serves our diversity, we shall all likely indicate we are not ready for such government with our vote.
