    I only hope that the new Mayor and Board of Aldermen remember the people's needs and show a little more respect for the people that have entrusted them to represent them. I also hope they don't forget that they are there not to see how much they can spend but to spend only when it is good for the entire population not certain area's and certain groups or so they can say look what I did.
