The people in Greenbelt are not racist and there is a little village atmosphere which makes it safe and pleasant. Every year Greenbelt has the most spectacular fireworks display over the lake. People come from all the surrounding neighborhoods and there's never any trouble. The only reason the Greenbelt city council stayed all white was because they did such a great job and the voters were the homeowners. To Mr. Jordan, my congratulations and I hope to see more participation from the community. thanks Sylvie
