Blocked drain a problem


ALVIN — Editor:

I live on a county road and road officials have let the drainage ditch fill up. While the rain continues, I have little yard left. It will not drain.

The drain needs to be cleaned out and it had been done after I contacted former state Rep. Bill Black. I’m now trying to do the same with state Rep. Chad Hayes. I hope he fixes this or we won’t have a home or anything else.

It’s terrible when they know it does this but don’t care about the little people in the small towns such as Alvin. We pay taxes, too, but they don’t see this.
