Welcome to AboutMesquite.com. Our commitment is to bringing the City of Mesquite, Texas, surrounding communities of Garland, Sunnyvale, Terrell, Forney and Balch Springs residents the most up to date information on current events, community life and many great resource links.

 

AboutMesquite.com is proud to endorse Wendy Davis for Governor of Texas. It's time that someone cleans up the messes and corruption made by Governor Rick Perry and Attorney General of Texas Greg Abbott. Have you ever asked yourself why Texas has the highest insurance rates in the nation? Have you ever asked yourself why we now have some of the worst doctors in the nation because of the Tort reform that Governor Rick Perry passed capping settlements of $250k or less. That means they will never get sued in Texas for malpractice!!!

It's Time For A Change To Clean Up Texas!  -More at Wendy's Site-
