If THIS is the message our City's Economic Development Director is sending out and agreeing with, no wonder he is nothing more than a money draining, salary suck wasting our tax dollars when drawing a pay check!
You could NOT make Granite City look or sound less appealing to possible businesses, and future residents, and investors if you were deliberately trying to.
This man, and the company he is keeping and associating with, are advertising and spreading the word that the people of Granite City are "broken" and the city needs "Jesus and the Gospel". That the city is a poor town and it's residents are in desperate need of saving. They're saying Granite City is "trapped in sin". They believe we are a "city of broken people".
August Gate church, Mr. James Amos, what are you saying about all the hard work and dedication that several of our long standing churches and organizations have been doing for our city for years? You are stating that you are here to save us all, not by the way it sounds!
You, and your attitudes toward our city and it's residents are insulting! And the fact that you are circulating this video to spread YOUR opinions is nothing more than deliberate sabotage to any future investors and growth in a positive direction.
Lastly, Mr. James Amos, if you are affiliated with this church or group that is responsible for this video in any way, you should resign from your job, or the Mayor needs to step up and demand your resignation!
With friends like this, we damn sure don't need enemies!
