Commission rude to the
To the editor,
When more than 3,200 city of Nicholasville registered voters sign a community-interest petition for the betterment of the community, someone should take notice. I think if I were an elected official I would pay more attention to the citizens’ concerns than the mayor and city commission showed Perry Barnes, chairman of the nonpartisan Nicholasville Petition Committee, during his presentation to the mayor and city commission on April 23.
This is a link to the meeting where Barnes made his personal invitation and presentation to the mayor and city commissioners; see how he was received: http://vimeo.com/40902149.
What do you think? What is your opinion?
The mayor and city commission could have at the very least thanked him for his personal invitation to this historic event and for representing the people as well. Barnes and the Nicholasville Council Petition Committee have done a tremendous public service for the citizens of the city of Nicholasville.
They have petitioned for a choice in the type of government representation the people would like in the general election this fall. This is a nonpartisan petition. All registered Nicholasville voters are eligible to decide and vote once it is accepted by the Jessamine County clerk and placed on the ballot.
These elected officials, in my opinion, are a self-serving group, incapable of properly serving the needs of the people.
This is my personal opinion and not authorized by any political party.
