Over a year ago I was working in my front yard on monroe ave when I heard a woman make a distressed comment when I turned around a elderly woman had tripped on the side walk and fell to Her hands and knees , I rushed over to help Her and she said to Me somebody needs to fix these sidewalks. I called Mayor's office and in less than thirty minutes city worker was here putting up blocks and cones. City worker said we will put this on work order and would be taken care of in a week or two. Well after four or five months blocks and cones were picked up. So now after a year has gone by same little old lady was walking in the street next two the sidewalk looked at me and said hi so i walked up to her and I told Her about what the City of Jonesboro told me and She said it will never happen . I asked Her why ... and She said " Look Around Not Enough Registered Voters Here "

And as long as our city keeps turning its back on neighborhoods because of this, it will continue to get worse. Just because bad people move into a neighborhood does not mean that it should just be written off. All neighborhoods need attention, and the ones that thugs are getting a foot hold on need even more.

They can't ever get enough of our tax dollars for their paychecks and benefits AND for buying up YMCAs and the such and have enough for stupid stuff like fixing sidewalks or cleaning up city properties or anything like that. You must think the city/county/state/federal employees and agencies are actually there to make things right.

All i know is I see the city working all the elite neighborhoods and on sidewalks that we would love to have here. Well I guess our mayor knows where he needs to work to stay in office
Wont happen again

He won't get my vote again. I always see cops sitting in church parking lots where there's not a lot going on instead of doing their jobs and patrolling known troubled areas and high traffic areas.

She should've sued the city. Make it a big number, then when they go to settle, she should've said, OK but you also have to fix the sidewalks.
