Hot Springs Area Residents Fight Annexation



There is a serious moral problem with state laws on annexation in Arkansas. The entity to be swallowed up does not get its own vote on whether it wished to be swallowed! The votes of the entity proposing to swallow up some small place are combined with the votes of the proposed victim in order to determine whether the annexation is to occur.

It seems to me that the citizens of both the place to be swallowed up and the place taking them in should both have to approve such a move. Arkansas' current law on the issue is a law Adolph Hitler would have loved. He could have legally gobbled up all of those little countries around Germany.

It's funny that everyone against this blames the city board of directors. Not one person has publicly complained about Rep. Laurie Rushing, the only representative running for re-election, who voted to enact this law. The city board is only taking advantage of a law. Laurie Rushing helped to create it.
