Locals share hopes for upcoming year
Many people form New Year’s resolutions but don’t necessarily see them through to fruition.
The New Year’s “Man on the Street” poll posed a different type of question.
“What would you like to see change in 2019?”
Those answering were told the question could address any category from personal to city, state or U.S.
Even though there were similarities in some of the replies, varying points of view were given.
A matter of opinion
Rory Jens, Imperial, would like to see less harm come to cities, states and the nation through misuse of funds and general discord.
“I would like to see our elected officials, on all levels of government, become more efficient and less wasteful in what they do,” he said.
John Vogt, Imperial, said, “I want to see more attention go toward the school system and the kind of stuff that will benefit kids and give them more things to do.”
“I wish we could get the economy figured out. That’s my big thing right now,” said Carol Macklin of Enders.
Each new year is a beginning and a chance to effect a change in one’s life or community.
