I don't know how to get in touch with her personally, so I figured she probably reads this site as well. I have a few questions/concerns that I would like to voice:

1) why does the tall, black, police officer who works days, have to work by himself? There is never another patrol car or someone with him. What if he pulls over a car full of people with guns or drugs and has to let them go or needs backup? What if there is a car wreck and someone is being robbed at their house at the other end of town?

2) can something be done with Moore Park? It looks raggedy with their sagging fences and their broken basketball goals. Also, that pavilion, is where crowds of people go to drink and smoke. I have seen the city workers in the city trucks go down there to drink on duty many times.

3) lastly, is there something to do with those housing projects on1st Street and Magnolia Ave? The police are always there when I drive by and were there six times this week! I dont know if the tennants dont get along or not, but even Charter guy was there 5 times this week arguing with them.(probably stealing cable i guess, there were 2 Charter vans there one day).

These are questions/concerns that I have and would like to bring to your attention because I love my city and would like to see it flourish as you do.

Thanks

Actually, I pass those streets everyday on my way to work. I live on Raulston Town Road and have been a part of this community for 30 years. I just want it to grow and prosper and not be referred as 'the ghetto.' South Pittsburg can be a better place if people can work together.

the question isnt why isn't Moore park fixed up.. the question is why don't they stop people from tearing them up sitting on the benches drinking and smoking dope! here is why the park isn't fixed.. because the people that live around there has no respect for anything or anybody they would tear up an anvil if they could!! if the park was fixed up it would be right back in the same shape in 3 months!!! you don't stand City money in a neighborhood where people are tearing up things! Jane Dawkins is a smart businesswoman she's not gonna just throw away money..
