What a Shame

It is a Shame that the people in charge of the city and the pay they get, and yet Morganton is still boring and some parts very ugly to look at. You got Gary Leonhardt-( derector of recreation ) and yet there is nothing really to do around here. Just look at some of the parks- over grown trees, knee high grass, nothing for the youth to do. the city could use a big dog park for everyone dogs to run around in and such. Could use a place like a skate area for all the youth to use with skate boards and bikes. and a lot more. After all he is making $76,375 a year. Our tax money well spent??? you tell me.
Then you got Lee Anderson ( director of devlopment/design who seems to be doing nothing with making Morganton a better place with things to do or trying to help bring jobs in by going after companys to come to Morganton by making them some sweet deals if they they come. And not to mention that Morganton just doe's not look apealing to these companys. Morganton looks like it has been stuck in the 80's and don't want to move forward. Make it better for jobs to come not for another church to build, that wont pay any taxes or help with the community. There is way to many church's in Morganton. After all she is making $77,485 of your tax money to do nothing. Money well spent??? you tell me.
The city brought in Michael Berley in to help make Morganton a place where people would want to come and enjoy the things that Morganton had to offer, how can that be when Morganton really has nothing to offer. No out door stuff really, lake james looks nasty in a lot of places, a zip line, that I nevery see anyone at. No atv trails that are worth riding, nothing that stands out and say's WOW lets go to Morganton to have some fun. After all he is making $52,358 of your tax money to have no ideals on what to do. Money well spent??? You tell me.
Morganton needs to change for the better, a better quality of life, things to do, especially stuff for the youth to do, not make Morganton a city full of old folks home, and more churchs. With the tax money that we are paying these people - they should do better then they are and make Morganton a great place for all and for the future. I would bet they don't spend their money in Morganton, I bet they go somewhere else. If you want people to buy local they have stuff here for people to spend their money on and things to do.

I agree 100%. The corrupt Melganton regime needs to go. It ain't gonna be easy. Voter apathy, I don't wanna make waves, Sentimental folks will vote for DR.Hamer, and just plain ignorance will be hard to overcome. But it CAN be done. Lets get some new blood on the Melganton city council. No more "I don't own any property Cantrell", Or Strom Hamer, or Alfred Thurmond.

If Dr.Hamer really cared he would not want to be paided, he already has lots of money, y not let that tax payer money go to something for the city... But nooooo he needs more..
