Elected leaders must hold themselves accountable

Published 9:10am Friday, September 13, 2013

My opinion on the state of the county government would be that several individuals need to stop blaming others for the trouble — financial, legal, etc. — and do something to better the situation and their environment.

People have been fooled since the beginning and some need to be taken serious due to certain standards we face in the world we are living in at the present time.

Community service should be mandatory by all that are able to do so and much more.
