Do you wonder what mayor Bailey is up to? You better check. She can't be up to any good for the citizens or the city of Hopewell.

Gripe and whine. The energy wasted on the "poor me' stuff could be used to help. Get involved with some boards or committees. Use your voices and talents to create change. Go to city council and speak up. One thing is for sure this Ain't working.

Hopewell's problem is that it's got too many welfare public housing peeps. Which leads to gang violence and drugs. Close down public housing, get rid of the deadbeats and lowlifes and stop blaming the people actually trying to make a change.

Im sick of the whining you people resort too. You don't like something run for office, or shut the duck up!

I don't understand why there are those who gripe sabout Hopewell. Hopewell enjoys a Sheriff who put out as high as 4 Deputies on the city's 8/10 mile stretch of I-295 to set up speed traps which steals over $140,000 monthly from unsuspecting drivers. That's $1.5 million a year. Heck, being the size that Hopewell is, the streets should be paved in gold and honey flowing into the city's gutters!! I'm sure that the city leaders are reducing proerty tax rates for the citizens as well as building outstanding city infrastructure for the citizens of Hopewell to enjoy with the ill-gotten gains from that 'thug with a badge'. So it seems that not only should there be 'hope' in the city, but high satisfaction as well. OK, so Hopewell has a high crime rate and the worst school system in the state. Who cares that the Sheriff refuses to put deputies on the city streets to help the P.D. prevent crimes. YOU GET money and that is worth much more than helping prevent citizens from being poor crime victims or illiterate from bad schools. So everyone outside of the city knows Hopewell sucks, but they can't enjoy the blessings that creepy Sheriff and his henchman bestow onto the city!! Keep that money flowing and the crime rate grown Hopewell. So LUV your hick town and don't give adamn about the reputation. YOU have a cash cow thanks to I-295!!

Shhh there Freedome 4 All. Do not put the word out, those unsuspecting drivers whose cash we love to have may get off the interstate and go around to avoid our hopsitality. Oh wait, THEY CAN NOT. There is no close on_off ramp on or near that strech of hiway that we own, so they can not avoid it. GREAT. Keep stealing boys. A few crime victims, or a few folks who can not read is a small price to pay for a free millions bucks a year. So go get them boys.

With all the drugs and other crime going on around town, the cops can't be everywhere all the time. Get with neighborhood watch,or just get a gun and protect your own property like I do. Just make sure you kill the little bastuuuurds, or you will get sued(make sure they have a weapon).

I lived in Hopehell for 2 yrs and it sucke because it's too far from civilization, it feels like a forest, too many racoons, the people are unfriendly, everything closes to early, the movie theater is filthy, people can't drive, and it's just plain boring
