Letters to Editor today, this one speaks volumes. Also, don't miss the ones about the TCC tax increase.
Fort Worth's public educational system is in shambles, but spending $9.2 million on a new state park is deemed to be more important.
In these fiscal times, do we really need another state park, just 20 miles south of Possum Kingdom state park, more than we need better schools for our kids?
One has to wonder how many other such expenditures are being made with no consideration for whether they could be put to better use, both locally and on a national level.
Our elected officials keep telling us they need more revenue and, when they don't get it, they cut essential services instead of re-examining their spending priorities and cutting or postponing projects and programs that could wait. This mentality has nearly destroyed our economy and sent us into enormous national debt.
We need new leadership, locally and nationally, to rescue us from this abyss.
