Good example. I have bin on a volunteer fire dep for 4 years. The mayor of mobile wonted to annex a (not so good) area we covered. He promised better fire and police protection, sidewalks, street lights, a park with a playground and free garbage pick up. Now the nearest city fire station is about 20 min away running code 3. If that truck is on another call the next responding station is about 40 min away and city police station over 30 min. At this point city and county responded to this area. Our station is right across the high way with this area on the other side of the high way. The sheriff office I can hit with a rock from the bay doors. It takes us more time to git in the fire truck than it dose to drive to the seen.
They voted for the annexation. Guess what they got. Not crap no sidewalks, no park, no lights, and definitely no free garbage. Now when they call 911 and we hear it on the scanner all we can do is walk out side watch and make bets on when the fire dep and police will get there. And they come over and ask why we are not helping. We say we cant y'all voted us out.
