Would love for them to attack the problem of all of the prostitutes between the hotel and the gas station right before the bridge on 19. The same ones are out even during the day now, and for people like me who live in the area by Astor, we use these roads all the time. Why not go after the hotel like Walden Pond? They will linger in the road and rush up to any car that drives up to get to 19.

Jobs..make this a number one priority. This city is not going anywhere, because of the long-term unemployment of millions in this country and our little town.

I'd like them to look into abandoned properties that are allowed to deteriorate. I have a few on my block with broken windows, roofs that have been tarped so long that the tarp is rotting off, broken garage doors, and the city says nothing can be done. The only maintenance is the grass is cut every few months. The investment firms that own these homes don't care, meanwhile they're killing everyone else's property value. I hate to think what the insides look like with leaky roofs & kids breaking in to do drugs & such, at this point they probably need to be condemned. I also wish they'd pave a few roads, like Gulf!
