Letter to the Editor 4-6

Dear Editor,
With the vote now in and the election over, I guess we can say the people have spoken. At over a 2-1 ratio to build the Law Enforcement Center as the Board proposed and I would like to congratulate the Board and our County Sheriff Brian Marks for an outstanding job of planning and getting the message out. I think this also stands as a referendum on where our county and the city of Concordia stand on which direction they want this community and the county to go. And that is: Be Progressive and Positive. And that our community and the citizens are fed up with the negative finger pointing and name calling of good people who are just trying to grow and make our county a better place to live. It’s one thing to be against a project. It’s another to use words like Bully and accusing Boards of backroom dealings or to make accusations that county employees are not doing their jobs with maintenance, etc. . . . So, with many future projects in planning stages and on the drawing board, I hope the community and county will continue to get out the vote on the issues as they did April 3rd. And send a positive message to the people on these boards– city, county, college, hospital etc. When you come up with good progressive ideas with best interest of your citizens in mind, you will find overwhelming support.
Thank you,
Todd L. Gennette
