We Need More Angry Residents Who Care: THE VOTER

Most people who are happy with the state of municipal affairs, possibly because there is some profit or other benefit. Others don’t care and can’t be bothered to be informed.

Lots of the apathetic groups rise up when the city’s activities affect them directly such as increased taxes  or the potholes are bad on their commute. They don’t, however, go beyond their personal concerns other than to mumble bad things about politicians and city staff. So their anger is never directed where it could do any good. They also remain uninformed on municipal public policy.

The other group, the beneficiaries of the failings at city hall, are happy to sit back and reap the profits of the general populace’s lack of knowledge. For them, uninformed residents are a good thing and they work hard to keep them that way,

That leaves a small band of those people who ‘get it’ to constantly fight against apathy and bad intentions. The battles are hard fought and the victories too few but every foot of ground we can protect makes our struggles worthwhile.


The world needs angry men and women who care deeply about their communities. Don’t give up.

    Agreed. At this point a cut from the 1976 movie “Network” directed by Sidney Lumet would have been nice. Any of the vignettes in which Peter Finch shouts “I’m mad as hell. And I’m not going to take it anymore.” Political correctness be damned!!! If city residents are going to get mad at city politicians and city hall staff they need to be all in or the people responsible for the problems will continue to sit in their ivory tower with their earbuds in place touching up their Facebook pages.
