Just noticed that Ron McGarrity was the person who started this whole thing about hating Hopewell. Heck, has he ever wondered if Hopewell might just hate him as well? Lazy, malingering azz--most non-productive member of society I have met since I moved here. Are they even still around???

You close down the public housing and welfare, the hood rats will be scattering like rats on a sinking ship, only to infest other communities......

That would be a GOOD thing. All these rats came here to get all the goodies and cheap housing. It's way past time to stop all this welfare free-bees, and get rid of the parasites that are sucking the blood out of Hopewell and the country. It is one thing to give a helping hand up, but to allow generation after generation to just keep breeding on welfare is criminal. We need to give everyone on welfare 1 year to get it together, or we cut off ALL welfare to them and take their children away from them and find REAL homes for them. Period.

I've read quite a bit on this forum. Seems many people think this is how to make a difference. Come on here, blame the local government, blame the police, and blame everyone else. Considering the local government and sheriff are elected, who can blame them when it was the PEOPLE of Hopewell that put them there to begin with. That is what needs changed. Go to council meetings, research candidates before voting, and do your part, with your voice, at the meetings to keep them accountable for promises and on focus for the city's goals. Tell them what you want, loudly, at every meeting. Make them hear you. I seriously doubt they read these for advice.

As far as the speed trap goes, blame yourself. If you've been here for any length of time, you know they're there. You know they're waiting, everyday, for rush hour. Drive the speed limit and don't worry about it.

If it's that bad here, move. It's a free country. If you don't want to move, then take your complaints where they can and will be heard; the very people that is running the city. Take pride of where you live, stand up and make a difference.

Damien, you hit the nail on the head. Apathy is the whole problem with the city, state, country, and the world. Here in the USA, people would rather watch crap on TV then learn what our "leaders" are trying to ram down our throats. The parasites are taking over.

What a great thread this is! Clearly balanced by whiners, pissed off loyalists and optimists. So here's a comment from an elderly old timer. Stop blaming the current city council. They didn't create this mess, nor did the council before them, or before them. The mess was created decades ago by the city elders who bought up property and sold it to the government, along with their souls. Check out the the stats on Hopewell. It has one of the largest percentages of renters and government assisted housing residents in the state. And this didn't happen last month, last year or the last decade. It happened long ago. And we're fortunate that we have a couple of big industries in town to generate the tax revenues to offset the drain of the government dependent class.

I truly admire anyone who would accept the modest pay to accept the criticism, ridicule and outright hatred to become a city council member in Hopewell. Personally, I would love the challenge of helping, but lack the patience of putting up with all of the whiners and loudmouth idiots. I'd be in jail within a year. Our council members, past and present, deserve our respect for putting up with all of the crap that we all shell out so easily.

So here's a new thought. Stop blaming the police, the council, Obama, Bigfoot or anyone else. It's not their fault. And it's not really our fault either. Most of those who we should blame are either dead or wearing diapers. So let's try to support those who make an effort, whether we agree with them or not. At least their trying.

The problem started in the 1970s when section 8 housing money brightened the eyes of the city elite. They saw pie in the sky and all that "free government money". It all went down hill from there. BUT, the city fathers (and mothers) today could be working to reverse the trend rather then calling everything racism. Hopewell could and should be a great city but for the lack of true leadership and foresight. Think of the city, not your own greed.

Actually, Hopewell is moving in the right direction( unlike Petersburg). The only bad thing left in Hopewell is the trash that sucks the life blood out of taxpayers. The rental property that the slumlords own need to be torn down, or better yet, tax them for property AND business And mess tax. If they can't act like humans, send them to Petersburg or Richmond.

The chemicals and other industries made Hopewell (and the country). The pay was more than other jobs were paying at the time. It beats being a parasite on welfare.
