Here We Grow
This video was taken during the DeKalb Park District’s public meeting on their proposed $15 million water park. To those who serve, or seek to serve, in public office… please listen. Please listen.
Looks like we we're listening.
When will we see some relief? I hope locally, tomorrow night when the election results are published. Clearly we have not seen relief at the federal level, regardless of the "change" that was promised during the campaigns. President Obama's budget released today only shows incredible record spending, additional deficits, and further government control. It seems so many on both sides of the aisle locally and nationally just don't get it.
My hat's off to these brave souls speaking at the Park District hearing. There are many more like them. I hope the so-called leadership hears and sees how difficult situations are for many, many DeKalb county citizens. I especially hope this awareness and sensitivity starts with Mike Verbic, president of District 428, and then extends to the parks and city administrators.
The other question to ask besides is anyone listening–is anyone seeing? How many see the people around town holding up signs that say will work for food to feed my family?
From the heart is right Mac. Some would say that these feelings are also being stimulated right from the pockets. That really should have been from their empty pockets.
Never sure when that proverbial straw breaking the camels back will rear its ugly and life changing self but it can't be too far with regards to the responsibilities that are being placed on the good, hard working taxpayers of this community. When will they begin to see some relief from those digging deeper each year into their pockets?
