People over Politics?
As I walked door to door last fall, the overwhelming feeling in the 2nd ward was, oh great, another politician, or why bother voting, city hall does not care. Or lastly, politicians are out for themselves and we the voters have no voice, I am staying home! Well as someone who does care about local issues and hoped to better our community, I tried to stay positive and tell voters that they do have a voice and everyone counts. I guess I was wrong and the people were right. The politicians are out for themselves and the last election proved it. I speak of Mr. Trompetta and his run in the 2nd ward. Knowing he was moving and for the sake of his party, he stayed in the city council race to keep a seat for the Mayor. Once the race was over, he would let the mayor pick someone to replace him, say a “Horace Miller” type. Some in his party tell a different story but the facts are the facts. His house was off listing in October, he signed over the warrantee deed election day and after being sworn in, he resigned. Some in city hall do not see the problem and many just choose to look the other way. Say what you will, but Mr. Trompetta had to know he would not be able to serve long before the end of the election. The bigger issue is that the people were deceived and to this day do not know who will be representing them. In the end their vote did not matter but moreover is it too much to ask for a little honesty and transparency?
