In response to Adam Panish’s letter “Love this town” on May 1, 2013.

His statement that city government is truly responsive to its residents made me laugh. Roads are well maintained, true. Buses run smoothly. I assume that is true; I don’t take the bus. Growth is well managed, false.

Then his statement that anti-growth letters to the Daily Press don’t represent the majority of the residents, another laugh. Who likes traffic and uncontrolled development?

His last statement — “To say our City Council is in the hands of developers just doesn’t mesh with the facts” — makes me laugh even harder. He must be an employee of some developer. Open your eyes. Hopefully voters will next election.
