Spend­ing de­ci­sions

Daily Press (Sunday) - - Local News -

I’d like to com­ment on the ar­ti­cle about the money we’re spend­ing on the aquatic cen­ter and now the pro­posal for the air park. We need to spend some money on our neigh­bor­hoods and get them cleaned up and do some­thing about the lit­ter prob­lem we have and get our cit­i­zens in­volved in tak­ing care of their homes and their yards and rak­ing their leaves so that they don’t clog the drains and flood the streets.

Ed­i­tor: In al­most ev­ery as­pect of life, there’s some­one who will dis­agree with a de­ci­sion you’ve made. I know that’s true of the news busi­ness, and I am cer­tain that’s true when it comes to city ini­tia­tives. So let me get on my soap­box to­day and make a lit­tle plug for democ­racy. While I ap­pre­ci­ate you shar­ing your opin­ion for Feed­back, the best way to share your thoughts about what govern­ment does it to at­tend pub­lic meet­ings, send notes to your pub­lic of­fi­cials and show up at the polls to vote. Then you can be cer­tain your voice will be heard by the peo­ple who make de­ci­sions in your com­mu­nity.
