Slow down and smell the roses!
I really appreciate the information on Lynchburg's financial stress rankings that was made available by Jim Weigand at lburgareava.blogspot.com. I can't help but wonder if that is why so many candidates have come forward. On the one hand, it reinforces that each candidate cares enough to take a stand on what they feel is most critical. On the other hand, it also exposes how badly our government has taken care of this great city.
As a long-time citizen of Lynchburg, I am saddend that in just 4 years of democratic control our budget has sky-rocketed the way it has and yet I just sat back and let it happen. Well...no more! Nowadays it seems [we] live in such a mad rush of life that it's become so easy to overlook or just accept something for the sake of being able to move onto to the more immediate things in our life. So, we trust those voted in to make the best decisions for us - the taxpayers. Stop the budget from spinning out of control. Give us time to slow down and smell the roses!
