Olney resident, and former school board member, Jeff McClatchy, speaks at Seymour ISD’s Special Meeting on April 21.  Seymour ISD passed a motion to annex 34.89 square miles of Baylor County land that is in Olney ISD. Landowners in that block of land initiated a petition to have it annexed. The landowners would benefit financially from lower taxes, but that tax revenue would be taken from Olney ISD and given to Seymour ISD. Photo by Kurt McCord
