This town and others like it would lose its tag as a po-dunk town if it would get rid of the old leadership and vote in New and younger ones. How about an up and coming 18 year old, couldn't hurt it any more than it is. When we can get rid of those who are stuck in the past, this town can move into the future. The reason I mentioned the age 45 up top is they'll spend their life here and at 45 still have nothing to show for it.
I've only pointed out the problems in this town to illustrate the lack of opportunity for our young people and how a town that lives in the past cannot offer a future.
