I am most intrigued by a comment sent in by Jennifer Wilson on the Purchase vs. Rent post. She has more questions than I have time to address at this point, but certainly she asks some very good questions.
I wish that you would go to the last post and read her comments. Just click on "comments" and scroll to the bottom of the page. I think my readers would like the thoughts Jennifer offers. I can answer a couple of easy questions. City Council members are elected "at large." Even though they are assigned Place numbers, they represent no specific geographic area. To use Jennifer's words, its a "mish mash." Also, no public money should ever be used to maintain any private parks, unless there is a very specific agreement whereby the public's interest is protected and preserved. This would be rare. Very rare.
I was delighted to get Jennifer's comments. That is precisely the type of interest I was trying to ignite.
I hope to finish up my business over the weekend and get back to writing the blog. I am way behind. Bear with me.
