"THE ANSWER IS BLOWING IN THE WIND"
Tuesday's meet the candidate night is just a few days away. I wonder what kind of questions will be asked from the people who will attend? Softball questions, or straight forward ones that let you know where the candidates stand and who they side with. Questions like;
Do you agree with councils plan to invest in a 50 year 50 million dollar plan for a coal fired electric plant in Meigs County that we will be obligated to pay for no matter what the cost?
Do you believe the proposed use of the hospital site for 22 single family homes 67 townhomes, and 70 apartments is a good use for that property?
Does it seem strange to you about the holdup of the transfer of the Millstone property. Could there be a problem the city isn't letting council know about?
Do you think the city has responded to the concerns of the Cobblestone Apartments properly and in a timely manner concerning the 9:14 respond time? Are you comfortable with whats going on concerning this issue?
Are you concerned about where the city is going to make cuts in next years budget and do you think it was wise to give any raises this year?
Do you believe we have an illegal immigrant problem in town and does it affect the city as a whole? Do you have any ideas what to do about it?
Questions like this, not Can you get Doug Nagy more money for bigger planters downtown?
Sorry, I should have added feel free to post your own questions! Show up at the candidate nights also to ask them.
Did you all read the article in Fridays News-Herald about Grand River wanting to annex acreage that is a large part of Headlands State Park. Here is a Village that is on the brink of bankruptcy wanting to annex park land? Who owns property there?
Commissioner Troy remark in the paper made me very curious. Troy said there might be other factors to consider that haven't yet reasched the surface.
"I'm just sensing a little cloak and dagger here involving other communities." he said "I think before commissioners make a decision, it behooves us or we should be entitled to get all the information."
Yes commissioner something else is going on here and it could only be Mentor, or Painesville you speak of, Isn't that the location of Painesville's water department water intake facility?
To the Painesville Township Trustees don't let either of them steal anymore land from you! We can't afford a 15 or 20 minute respose time, O.K.
