Voice of the People
Am I the only one that has to wonder just how dumb things can be? I am
talking about the $130,000 spent on colorful flyers for the South Shore
Extension that the vast majorities seem not to want. This compared to a very
good service for the area that really helps people and is going down the
drain. ADULT EDUCATION needs $110,000 to keep operating.
So which one better serves the tax payers that has worked hard for the money
that funds different things around the county. It seems to me that the real
goal is go for flash and what the politicians think we want and not what is
What would I rather have, a flashy flyer in my mail box and an uneducated
person that will more than likely turn to crime to survive? Or a good
educational program that would help people get their diploma, better
themselves and end up with jobs that in turn help support the community?
So far it looks like we will be stuck with $130,000 worth of nonsense. Anyone
that is opposed to how our money is being handled should take note of our
elected officials stand on all this. When it comes time to vote it will be
the best voice you can have, even if the person making the not so bright
decision is holding an appointed office. Vote out the person that did the
appointing and bring in new.
