Re: “On Reinventing Government

I apologize for the typos.

The things that are being discussed in this editorial, is old news pertaining to city and state government issues. Until the people who sat in those thirteen seats are identified as people who are not producing results and are removed from their seats, that will alleviate some of these political issues and social problems that have existed in this city for far too long.

Until we have people from top down in the city and state government, who are willing to listen and act objectively to the problems that citizens of this city are experiencing, the problems will continue to plague us, and Memphis will continue to remain stagnant from an economical, job, health and overall business perspective.

Why is the city constantly having budgetary issues, each and every year? Why are our schools, as well as our colleges in Memphis are one big budgetary mess? Why do we continually have high crime, in a relatively small city? Why aren't new businesses moving, or bringing jobs to the Memphis area? Instead, corporations are moving their operations to rural areas outside of Memphis.

Why do we have the lowest cost of living, but have one of the country's highest sales taxes, high unemployment, and high teenage pregnancies?

Citizens of this city and state, are continually voting people in office, who are not addressing these issues, and the issues I mentioned, are just the tip of the iceberg. The issues are NOT going to go away until they are dealt with objectively and in a logical manner....
