Photo Show: The eyesore after the Dedication of National Park Drive
By Branson Hunter ♦ Twentynine Palms – Below are a series of photos taken several days ago. They will authenticate the neglected and critically needed infrastructure in the downtown area.
National Park Drive is an important addition to the city. However this city council has not been paying attention to critical needs of the city. The photos will also document unacceptably-neglected-dangerous infrastructure at confluence of SR 62 and NPD.
Misquite and SR 62 is the direct route to the post office for residents, travelers, pedestrians and wheelchair-bound folks. Dangerously neglecting infrastructure like this in the downtown area is unacceptable.
You know, there is a time for everything. A time to be born and a time to die, a time to be silent and a time to speak, a time to keep and a time to throw away [Ecclesiastes 3 New International Version].
And there s a time for a change on the council this election year. The city’s streets and infrastructure are a manifest embarrassment — especially in the downtown area. The focus of the city is to placating the special projects of five good but incompetent council members who stick together like glue. They demonstrate and practice loyalty to themselves and special friends but not taxpayers or the public.
It is not far amiss to say this city council have become sycophants for a small group of well-meaning cronies who have assisted at every opportunity to drown the city in a debt so unspeakable that no public or elected official will ever talk about it.
I submit this city council will not be having an Candidate forums this year. That would expose them to the public, and having to answer embarrassing questions that have no answers. A dysfunctional city is one the does not make changes in it’s leadership when its leaders have turned a deaf ear to a city’s needs, and four councilmen who who have created more endless debt than the city has in reserve funds or total liquid assets!
It’s guarantee this city’s infrastructure will continue to deterioration and the plundering of city funds continues. The council as a whole did some good for the city. Now it’s time to clean up the city and invest in a badly neglected infrastructure because the entire council can’t see the trees through the forest. That a fact.
Thanks you for your indulgence. Please vote. Please vote wisely. Have a good day.
