It seems a shame that Cathedral city cant manage its own affairs and feels the need to expand its sphere of incompitance even further. Cathedral city has a long history of being small business unfriendly and financial mismanagement. In the past small businesses have fled the city to friendlier desert cities than put up with Cathedral city's shenanigans. In the past their approach to financial management has been turning of the water and maintenance to its parks and recreation centers. Its down town and 111 corridor continues to be an unfinished white elephant for the valley to marvel at. While the city continues to eye residential zones for eminent domain and rezoning into huge developments. The city itself seems to suffer from delusions of grandeur. While the city itself is a solid working class town city hall is trying to make the city into something it is not. Cathedral City fix your own problems before you decide to expand your sphere of incompitance beyond your city limits. Thousand Palms ask you self carefully....will you receive a seat at the board to challenge any decisions that Cathedral city chooses to make in the future? Will we have the opportunity to vote these rascals out or off the counsel board once they are in or are we letting the nose of the camel into out tent, only to find out there is no room for us and the camel in our tent.
If we cannot vote them out later then this is taxation without representation.
Even if we could vote the out do we want Cathdral city to do to us what they have done to their own city?
