This election as much about the future as the present

This article resonates with me because I feel strongly that we don’t give enough time and focus on reasoned debate. “Everyone” wants to believe growth is good, simply for the sake of growth. But there are costs associated with growth and we should have honest conversations about who pays those costs. I do not believe the burden should be on the taxpayers. If government is involved – taxpayers are the ones paying!

We also need to consider what are the trade offs? The main road in town is a state road that the town doesn’t have control over or ability to repair. Traffic is also already bad – do we want to encourage growth without proper thought given to the hidden costs?

“While members of Congress do whatever members of Congress do, local mayors and council members pay attention to matters that most may matter. We ask a lot of these leaders and, yes, we can ask. Most seem as reachable as all should be.

Reach them.

Ask them which businesses are coming. I get it. It too is fair, though, to ask both them and ourselves when is enough growth enough? Can we overdose on progress?”
