An estimated 12,000 people sardined themselves into the stadium, then a fresh batch repeated the process less than 24 hours later to finish off the two-day finale to a nearly monthlong event that could only be brought about by the hottest recording artist of the 1990s.

My personal passion is youth sports, yet, there is no quality of life if a citizen cannot be safe on our streets or in their own home.

    Quality of life is an important piece of the role of municipal government. The City must make sure that we keep our assets such as the Amarillo Public Library and Parks and Recreation strong to cater to people from all walks of life in our community.

    "Quality of Life" seems to be one of the current buzzwords usually meaning it is the government's job to provide for me. IMO we must be very careful what we do with Taxes and Debt within the City.
