How did we get from a little town with so much potential to grow to what it is now? 

Who gave so much power to so few to decide what the resident wanted and needed?

Why there are so many good people with such great Ideas to make this town grow and bring in more people who want to stay?

But aren’t given the chance to voice their Ideas. There are a lot of single parents out there and couples who both have to work who are trying to give their children the things they need and put a roof over their heads and food on the table. 

I have asked many times for the Commissioners to move their meetings to evenings. Yes I know it has to be put in writing and put on an agenda, then maybe it might be considered. What happened to we the people. We pay our taxes, we work hard to make ends meet, yet more people are finding that they have to move out of town to find better job opportunities then what we have to offer. We see what is happening, and want more, will it ever happen? Who knows. Just my opinion.
