Light entertainment at council

TAHLEQUAH — Editor, Daily Press:

I went before the city council Monday, Oct. 7, with a signed petition of everyone on our street, except two residents, who want a speed bump installed on our street.

It took one woman telling her life story and friends on the council (including the mayor) to get a veto on the bump. A council woman wanted a man’s house demolished, rather than give him repair time. Queen of the council did most of the talking, mostly negative replies.

For light entertainment, go sit in on a council meeting. If you go for a personal reason, be sure you have friends on the council or a life story to tell.

When re-election time comes again, we hope to make some replacements.

Both states and cities should be allowed to raise their minimum wages.
Cities should be allowed to raise their mimum wages, but not states.
There should be no minimum wage at all.
