The column in the newspaper written by Matt Nash bashing Steve Price still has me fuming. Steve Price is not my council representative but what the hey? England has the majority of Council reps voting for his agenda so what does it matter if Price doesn't agree with England about the taxpayer's money?
I found this article to be unconscionable, rude, uninformed, detrimental, and uncalled for. Does Nash live in Price's district? Didn't Nash lose his own election? We all know about him being mentally unstable and the dirt with his personal life. Do you think he would appreciate someone writing about that?
I called on Steve Price after reading this article; mainly wanting to know his reaction. Price is educated and a real person (as I call him), and I admire him sticking to his principles no matter what. This City is in the red to the tune of $12 million dollars. Nash makes no reference to this issue. I maintain this is the real issue and the Administration is simply trying to muddy the waters so we won't talk about it. Well, I say Steve Price and all of us need to be talking about it. Not how much more of our money can the City spend but how we can make up our budget shortfalls and require the City to be more accountable for their actions. Matter of fact, I can not understand why there has not been an emergency meeting of the Council to address the shortfalls. Maybe Mr. Price's district can talk him into forcing the Council into a meeting for this purpose. I would like to see the looks on the other Council people's faces when they finally admit the shortages on the books.
I urge Mr. Price to stand firm and to stand tall. What do you think about this hogwash?
Is there a need for another blog in New Albany? Why, sure. There is always a need for people to stand up and be counted no matter what. Too many issues; too many people ignoring the issues for the sake of their businesses; too many people beholding to people in office.
Our monies spent by local government will always be a hot topic. Too much of it is missing and unaccounted for.
I only ask you to try and stick to the issues or topics at hand; keep an even tempered keel; try not to cuss; and don't worry about who set this blog up. This blog is the peoples' blog and enables them to have a voice without fear of retaliation. It should work better than the other blogs where people do know who is publishing, I feel.
Not to change the subject, but a Political Action Committee (PAC) has been formed in New Albany and the powers to be would like nothing better than to figure out who belongs to this group. There is no way a PAC will ever be favorable to our local officials when it's purpose is to root out corruption, ignorance and greed. I say more power to them.
