Letter: Doughnut hole resident happy to be annexed to Pasco

September 11, 2013 

I am a 20-year resident of Pasco and I am currently a doughnut hole resident. I own two houses that were initially in the county and then were annexed into the city of Pasco.

In both cases, I have been happy to be upgraded from a county resident to a city resident. City services are excellent, especially the garbage service. Animal control, code enforcement and police services are also strong benefits to being a part of the city of Pasco.

Being our own city within Pasco is a terrible idea. I will be voting no to forming a separate city, and I hope that those who have remained silent in the midst of all the noise about withdrawing from the city will share the opinion on the other side of this issue.
