Letter: City leaders must put needs of the people over abuse of personal power
Lula

We as city officials need to get together for a long-range planning meeting to plan the course for the coming year, as well as for our future. We need to come to the conclusion if we are better off keeping our sewer plan regardless of what Hall County and possibly the other cities are doing. We have a great possibility for growth and expansion of our own city that benefits everyone. We as city officials need to be acquainted with our city’s charter laws to understand what our duties are.

What we don’t want is to see anyone abusing their power, and if it happens, we should ask them was it because you didn’t know or you didn’t care? Do we have leaders who can open a door for our future growth that we may be overlooking that we haven’t had in the past?

Whenever we want to make a situation better for all people in our community, we need an encourager when conflicts arise who can relate to others and smooth the waters.

I believe the time as come that we have people in our city, community and government who can make things better for everyone. We were elected to make things better, not to destroy.

Mordecai Wilson

Lula city councilman
