It does not make sense to cover good farmland, considering the economic downturn and the issue of food security for many in our community. Maybe if farmers were treated better, meaning that what they do is very vital to the communty as a whole, instead of putting emphasis that the money men are what make the world go around. If we do not eat, then where are we? Why truck in food, when we can grow it right here?

It does make sense to recapture the brownfields in this city and to make this land viable and productive.

Mayor Fred, in his campaign speeches emphasis that the brownfields in this city need to be addressed, if this city is to move forward.

In a brief research, I found that many cities in the US have made significant moves in this area. What is wrong with our leaders?
