That's just your opinion. I have lived here for 32 years by without any problems and I do have the means to live other places but choose to live here. I'm not "stuck" anywhere. Its easy to come on a site like this where you can remain anonymous and make slanderous and false statements against others without providing any evidence to back up your claims. Just because it gets published on the internet doesn't automatically make it a true or valid statement.

The city of Lancaster does have problems, and that's a fact. I have found city hall to be incompetent, with the exception of my city council rep.(District 2). Since moving here, I have seen the city go down, including the school system. I'm not giving an opinion, it's a fact! I can give you my story or stories of experiences with this city and I can truly say that I am so very saddened and
disappointed in how I have been treated by this city and my situation is still not resolved. I have to go to work now, but I 'll be glad to elaborate at a later time.

Every city has problems, none are perfect. My experiences with the city since I moved here have always been good. When I've had questions or concerns about anything, I can contact any official and get a response back the same day. I can share just as many positive encounters I've had here as well. To just label all city officials as incompetent is unfair to those who are really care about this community and its residents. Instead of making a blanket generalization about all city officials, you should identify those who you have the problem with.

Do you participate in every local election? I've never missed one. While you are satisfied with your council member, there's no rule that says you can't campaign for a different candidate in another district during election periods. As for the schools, they have improved since I moved here. It took a few years to cleanse the school board of its old guard members and that along with getting a new superintendent has been a positive. Its not all negative here and if we as citizens are just going to sit back and bash our own community, we need to acknowledge the good things happening in this city as well. You aren't going to find a city the size of Lancaster where 100% of the citizens are pleased with the local government. I'm sorry that you are experiencing problems, but I just wanted to let anyone who reads these posts to know that there are people like myself who take pride in where they live, participate in civic activities, and do things that contribute our community. I live in the area hit by the tornado and the performance of our officials during that period was excellent. Like the post left by speterson, I have the means to live other places but choose to live here and don't regret my decision at all.

I sincerely hope your grievances with the city are remedied. We may differ in our opinions, but the one thing that unites us is that we are citizens of Lancaster. Take care.
