"I like the size and location of Mount Pleasant. We are growing, but not too fast. Geographically, we are located close to Longview, Dallas—even Houston. You can take a five to six hour trip and then come back home to a small town."

"Looking ahead, our future looks good. We can attribute that to the people who work for the City of Mount Pleasant. One asset I am proud of is our new airport and what it will mean to our city and county in promoting business to our area. We're proud of what we have and we're striving to do a better job and reach our goals. One of our many goals is our street program—over the next couple of years, every street in Mount Pleasant should be overlaid."

"I like the influx of people into Mount Pleasant. We have a good nucleus in our mayor, city council, city manager—and our staff is second to none."
