I understand that you are probably thoroughly frustrated with our country’s current policies on energy. That is why we are here at PickensPlan.
I represent a blog about local issues. It is called the Hickory Hound (http://thehickoryhound.blogspot.com/). I have grown tired of the lack of direction here in our local area. Our economy has been stagnant for eight years. We are continuously told that things are on the upswing and that this is going to be our year. We have been told that to the point where it has become meaningless. I never hear many (if any) solutions from our city or county governmental leaders
I don’t know if you’ve checked it out, but none of our local leaders have joined this plan. That’s fine, but the problem I have is that they won’t show leadership on anything. These people have become way to comfortable and they don’t understand how the average citizen lives. Our local officials need to take a chance and lead. We need to be innovative. Why can’t our local leaders get out front on this issue?
The fruit of this energy crisis is ripe for the picking. Our local government needs to take a chance and lead. Why can’t we get in on the ground floor of the energy revolution? I think we should push for alternative energy and future transportation companies to locate here.
If you agree with where I’m coming from and believe that there needs to be some checks and balances on our community’s direction, then please join me at http://thehickoryhound.blogspot.com/.
Our objective is to get our community more involved and put power back into the citizen’s hands. We need to wake our local leaders up. We need to shake up the good ole boy network that has basically allowed this town to stagnate. We want our local government to become more responsive and user friendly, so that we can get more participation in the process. That is what representative Democracy is all about.
