The link above was removed by user. I copied it from a facebook event that Tammy Sharp posted.

I found the new link:

Before I confuse someone and crap gets started-

The facebook event was not started by Tammy Sharp, she just posted the video in it.

Good video! I think if we do get blessed by Ft Polk remaining here, Leesville / Vernon Parish needs to clean up there act. The rich wants the troops to remain due to this making them richer, just look at the cost of rent, and the price of vehicles. That needs to stop!! Why do we have to have bars along the highway, move them off the highway due to being an eye sore. Let Leesville grow, bring stuff in to allow family outings. There is nothing around here for a family to do. There is so much Leesville / Vernon Parish could do to make troops want to come here yet they don't, instead they just over charge everything!!

What happened to Mayor Rose saying that he would do more for the children? That is one of the reasons why I voted for him.

Yes I wish they would do more for the children, Yes the water park is nice, but they could do so much more to keep our kids active in the outdoors or indoors other than the bowling alley and skate palace. Honestly my child will not go to skate palace unless I am with him.

If they (the City) really want to show DoD that they stand behind the post then, the city has to cut taxes for new builders from out side the area like cut the cost of build fees and if a land ower is asking for more money then what the land is worth then the city needs to step in and I hate to say this but take over the land via Public domain.

Step like this is whats going to help build outside the base to make sure that the money spent by the troops is not taken outside the city as of now they drive to outside parishes as that is the only place they can do anything.

Until things like this is done the town of Leesville is going to be left behind greed from the land owners around here is whats going to drive the comanies out of here and the mom and pop stores can not handle the service when a larger crowd comes in.

Or we can keep doing this and after they say ok the DoD is going to stay, they run up the cost of everything and milk the DoD for our tax dollars, like they have been doing for so many years.

The greed in the area has to stop and GOOD OLD BOY Shit also need to stop !!!!

Heres an ideal why not ask one of the gun makers to move into the area hell cut them a tax break let them build a plant for next to free and then let the jobs grow.

Leesville is close to a sea port and can be driven too with ease as there is lots of room for a test ground for new weapons hell if they sale to the DoD what better place to be but close to an army base !!!
