I would love to see someone elected that has a fresh set of eyes, with a fresh attitude to go along with them. I want to see our tax dollars actually produce some kind of service or benefit to the taxpayers, other than being tossed into some "general fund" that slowly ends up drained with almost zero accountability.
Gone are the days of services for our elderly or disabled. I would love to see some kind of programs created whether it's a weekly game of Bingo, or a monthly pot luck type dinner.
Granite City has dances and trips for their seniors. They also have a meal on wheels program. It sure seems like there could be some kind of activities program set up. My guess is there would also be no shortage of volunteers to help make these activities possible. I know myself and my family would be interested in taking part in volunteering and help to make this happen.
