Think of days/years that when you hear the date, they bring back memories…good and bad.
1908 – Model T
December 7, 1941 – Pearl Harbor
December 25 – Christmas
Easter – Christ’s Resurrection
July 4 – Independence Day
September 11 – 3000 citizens die at the hands of a madman and his pawns.
November 22, 1963 – JFK assassination.
April 4, 1968 – MLK assassinated.
May 2, 2011 – The day YOUR voice died.
Last night at the Lee County Board of Commissioners’ meeting, YOUR voice, your say in your government, and your government’s trust (if there ever was any) in YOU – died. The board said no to a citizens’ panel. They said you don’t matter. They said you are not intelligent enough to recommend sound fiscal solutions to the problems we have. They said they knew better.
This probably comes as no surprise to most. After all, we did elect them to do a job. It’s also interesting that on the same night they defy you of forming a board that is organized and willing to spend your precious time to help our county, they blast Moss’s budget as being insulting!
That all being said, please stay tuned to this blog and other local blogs. Notification will appear soon on how to join the group. We will be seeking those from the left, the middle and the right to participate.
Their denial does not shut the door. It only makes us stronger and ever more diligent to hold them accountable to their “campaign” promises.
