I would like to see some more comments about the candidates running for Mayor. Can you hear me out there?
Also, if anyone goes to the council meeting Monday, can you let us know about the parking pass vote for J.P.? I would like to know just in case I need to get prepared for another community uprising.
I would encourage ANYONE ( especially the ones that have a vested interest of where our tax dollars go relating to services ) to attend the next meeting and all subsequent meetings of your local government where your attendance and voice may make a difference!!!
As for the best next mayor of our city, I will merely state there will be other choices then the MEN reported for every elected office and my only requirement of their qualifications lies in their ability to read and understand.
In particular READ and Understand the un-bias $77,000 Operational Assessment that reveals more then most of us even suspected about being over staffed , over funded and the inefficient and personal pading of salary,wages and benefits that has gone on for years at the demise of our infrastructure and resident services.
You can gain access to this study by going to the city of Monroe web site , going to City Government and scroll to : City -Wide Operational Assessment.
Regardless of the gender of the mayor or the council , this UN-BIAS paid by tax dollar study is like a doctor's prescription to better health.If we choose to ignore major portions of the remedy given because they are to painful or are not politically correct or wish to delay the inevitable ---don't worry about turning out the lights and living in an adjoining township ( that's where you will find most of the city employees ) because a city that has died has no need for electricity.
If you do as I suggest and investigate the results of the operational study, ask yourself what you would do if you were the C.E.O. of a business called the City of Monroe with the results you were faced???
Be Informed --Be Involved
Expect Responsibility & Results
