The alarm has gone off at least for this sleeping giant.
Being an apolitical person, I was drug into the arena when I heard many in our Town of Schroeppel wanted an increase in their wages. What? In this economy?
I’m all for trickle-down if I’m at the top but our community is poor and elderly.
It was clear at the budget meeting how volatile this situation was when the supervisor singled me out and told me to shut up.
The heated discussion was whether to pay a well-connected part-time employee to plant a garden. My big bad comment? How about volunteers?
