Hello Kitchen Table!
I would like to discuss how we get an atmosphere in this city where we all work together and stop talking about being Democrats and Republicans.
As a Republican, I can't understand why every single issue becomes a big fight to wrest any credit or attention away from the people who do the real work. It's always about grandstanding and making sure the right person swipes the credit.
I know Doug England is out of office, but for some reason, his name is mentioned in the Tribune just about every day. Why? I want to know, is England planting this? Or is the Tribune just struggling to fill space? And if the latter is the case, why on earth did they do away with Ed Clere's column?
Right now, we could stand to have some first hand information on the right - to - work bill they're all talking about and that the unions seem so up in arms about. But I don't have enough information to go on.
Back to the city of New Albany, I wonder why more people don't help Jeff Gahan, since he's making so many mistakes. Why are we just sitting here letting him make the mistakes? He must be listening to someone, right? I also wonder if we're going to continue to see city streets and sidewalks torn up. Why the selective sidewalk projects? In some of the areas, I didn't see any great need for a new sidewalk. In other areas, someone had the great idea to put all those bump - outs. What for? I find it all very confusing.
