Fix pot holes in Hope properly

Don't just dump a shovel full of sand in it and call it fixed

In the 1970s, ’80s and ’90s, Hope was a vibrant community. What has happened?

Our town is dying and all the current council is doing is raising our taxes.

How many officials have worked a short time and then left with severance pay?

They have not created a single job for our kids. Well I must retract that, they have a disc jockey driving a very expensive fire truck and running circles around town burning up hundreds of dollars worth of gas a year, and you and I are paying for it.

Why are they not fixing the pot holes in our streets with that money? Fix them properly not just dump a shovel full of sand in it and call it fixed.

I live on School Road in Silver Creek and this road has been in very bad shape for 10 years now. Pot holes are 6” deep.

I ran into one of them recently and broke a spring on my car. It cost me $69 for towing and $419 for repair.

Now the spring on the other side is broken and Gardner Motors is waiting for parts that will cost me another $417.76.

What a joke this town council is. They’re costing us a lot of money and we get nothing for it.

I ask all citizens of this town when elections come up not to vote for anyone who is on town council now. If you see the words re-elect, don’t check mark that box.
