As election day draws near, I can't help noticing all of the "re-elect" signs of our city commissioners. Now would be a good time to pause and reflect on how the issues, hot or not so hot, were resolved and expedited by our current elected officials.
Do we want the same mindset that dragged its feet for almost two years just to build a basic skate and rollerblading area for the youth in our community? Do we have to picket city hall and assemble in the streets to get our point across? Let us remember and stand behind our elected leaders who listened to the voices of the community (even the ones not old enough to vote), and cut loose the ones who flipped, flopped, back-pedalled, or just waited to see which way the mayor was going to vote. (The only thing missing in that circus was the popcorn.)
