Maybe the mayor and the commission have been so busy arguing that you haven't noticed or is there some other motive? In the contracts maybe???
Interesting enough, it appears our medical facilities may need your intervention if the rate of departure of staff is any indication that there is a problem. I would highly suggest that you and the city commission become more involved in the workings of our community other than making sure the local police have their instructions to hide and catch all the folks they could in order to boost the revenue.
Was speeding all right before you needed money? Were the other traffic violations all right before? Consistency is important in any endeavor of our life ... especially where multiple people are bound together in a society. Where is ours?
Heart of Danville faces huge cuts, and the Humane Society and the YMCA revenue is cut completely. Was the money that was budgeted before wasted, or we didn't care, BUT now, all of a sudden they don't need it?? How responsible is it to say you had it, but now you don't. I see a pattern much like writing traffic tickets.
Biven named to state post appears in the Advocate. He couldn't manage the little town of Danville, but he can be a director at the state level? Which one of you guys would he not agree with? Am I ringing anybody's bell?
We are being paralyzed by over analysis and roadblocks by personal agendas. We have all read in the Advocate about the commissioners and what they believe and where they stand; however, very little is being accomplished. If talking could put a plan into motion, we would be world leaders. Please show our community what the meetings and closed-door sessions have produced. Elected city leaders are for the good of the whole not individuals.
The mayor of New York City donated $5 million of his own money to equip planes to protect future investors traveling to New York from possible terrorist attacks. This is someone who not only "talks the talk but walks the walk." Can anyone from our city say they have that kind of unselfish leadership?
Some leaders with foresight have served Danville, in the past. It is obvious by the amount of industry, businesses, Centre and other local interests. They were not controlled by their own interests and inability to get along with others to accomplish the objectives for the benefit of the local community.
I challenge all of you to reevaluate your job description and your focus. Danville can be better, but it takes a vision and leadership working together to get us there. A true leader can listen and apply all of the best to accomplish the objectives. Can the mayor or city commission members honestly say this applies to them?
