Comment: Like the man said, "the first step in solving any problem is recognizing there is one". For too many years we here in the Pass have refused to do so. Then with the passing of our former mayor and the election of our current one (who wants to change 'everything' (overnight), while bypassing the wishes of the people in the process) we have gone from one extreme to another. One did not want anything to change, to one who wants everything to change, to the people's chagrin.
To be great one must have vision, have the support of the people, and seize the moment. Changing things for the sake of change doesn't work. What does work is a common vision for the future that the majority buys into.
This mayor and council may finally get on track with the soon to be created Economic Development Committee. This committee, if made up of the right men and women and with the support of council, could very well be the catalyst in recognizing our problem(s), so that we can then go about solving it.
Let's hope so!
In a time of universal deceit, telling the truth is a revolutionary act.
