    Not that I dislike Shari, but the fact that so many folks with deep local roots have been in charge for so long is exactly the problem, not the solution.

    Actually you probably have to live here more than a few months to understand what is going on. Or anywhere for that matter. What’s it been for you 5 months?

    People like yourself who have only recently moved here, yet seem to have all the answers (that seem to always involved more taxes and social programs) should be and are viewed with great skepticism.

    Furthermore judging from your many spiteful personal attacks and and angry comments, you may not have the maturity or temperament to be deciding for others what the problems are or how to fix them. Regardless of how long you’ve lived here.

    Really odd how many very vocal rec center supporters have been popping up lately, who magically just arrived in town and know all about how we need to fix things.

    In your opinion maybe. I would prefer someone who is rooted in the community. Deep local roots is not the problem. Native perspectives can give a unique understanding of the area and the people. It is easier for some to direct problems where they don’t exist, instead of contributing to society in a positive way.
