Auld Lang Syne
It's a new year and in a few days we will see if our mayor and board are willing to work to improve conditions in tne City of Lumberton. There's a lot of citizens that want to get the initiative put on the ballots to make Lumberton wet. I was boing to start this process but without the support of the mayor and board, it would be an uphill battle. They got us into this mess and they should look for solutions. The only thing they think about is cutting the police department. Ben is alway assigning projects to the aldermen; maybe he should get Jay McGraw to oversee the process of getting an initiative on the ballots to make Lumberton wet. I think he would be great for that project. Wouldn't you agree? Hopefully, we will have some positive changes this year. It's too difficult to remove elected officials. Now is the time we should be looking for new board members. Ben is planning on running for District 2 Supervisor. Unfortunately, he is not required to vacate his current position to run in a county election. This new year is bringing us closer to the end of this administration. Hallelujah! Lumberton needs some people that can think outside the box; not people with self-serving agendas. In all honesty, we need a clean slate: new mayor, new board and new department heads. So put on your thinking caps and start selecting your new representation and be prepared to support them during and after the election.
It is my prayer that we have a better year. Trust and believe, I will be on the scene, making sure the citizens of Lumberton are informed. Should old acquaintance be forgot, and never brought to mind? Should old acquaintance be forgot, and old lang syne? Happy New Year!
