Live Oak —
I want to give Johnny Bullard special thanks for writing such a good column every week.
Many papers have a venue like R&R, some writers need to do homework prior to writing, but subjects are about our community & all have the right to speak up. Hopefully leadership reads it, getting a clue on what's often the majority view. Signatures aren't needed in such cases. Those who reject this forum are probably the ones who want to control everyone else's lives. People can't sign comments due to reprisals, a situation opposite of what America stands for. Maybe that's why the ones griping about signatures don't sign them either!
Like it or not, what may have worked 50 yrs. ain't cutting it today. Leadership,(civic & political) needs to listen up & fix it. Most of this column looks to focused on practical land use reform, updated economic & political management & a more equitable tax base. Something wrong with that? The world is constantly changing, always has , always will. Those that refuse to adapt become irrelevant.
I believe Senator Porter has done us a great service in pointing out the misinformation that certain people use to try and make themselves look important. The facts people not distorted, made up 'facts' that are not true.
This message is addressed to Mr Wainwright County Commissioner. I have attended many of the County meetings and there are a few things that trouble me. Mr wainwright, you have show little or no patience for people in this county who are opposed to your agenda. If it was in your power you would cut off anyone who doesn’t agree with you. Also, you keep speaking of your invisible majority, who never come to any meetings, never sign any petitions never hold any rallys and never ever reveal themselves. You try to belittle the real majority with your well skilled manipulation. You try to bully and put pressure on your fellow commissioners. You called them all weak because they didn’t agree with you and in reality they showed strength to stand up against your pressure and influence and take a stand with the majority in the county concerning the infectious medical waste incinerator.
