In April 28 Issue
The past few weeks, this community has been in quite a discussion concerning the budget, taxes and etc.
The budget is in needs of funds and we all know the rest of the story. Raise taxes.
We certainly have feelings for the County Judge Executive and our magistrates. They have a hard seat to occupy and definitely one that will leave some very irritated, no matter what road they take.
At least, the community seems to be getting involved and various opinions and suggestions are being voiced. The same is appearing within the columnists of this newspapers.
It is always good to share opinions and discuss our concerns, but sometimes we must filter our political views.
We have always offered an open editorial page, although the conservative nature has been very obvious. Presently we are more open to publishing both liberal and conservative views.
We believe everyone should have the opportunity to express their opinion regardless of whether we personally believe with them or not.
There is one segment within the mix of all of this, is the fact that liberal or conservative, we should be able to our distinguish our differences and we should be able to separate them for the betterment of our community.
We all live in the same community and have the same neighbors and friends. We must learn to separate our political views from what is best for our community.
Washington has drawn a hard line between conservative and liberal politics and it certainly is not working.
Maybe we can take a closer look here and work together for the benefit of our community.
