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.
