To The Editor:
Now is the time for Lehigh to be first! Please contact the Economic Development county of Lehigh Acres through Mike Swords via email at: MikeS@sdstaxes.com and lend your support to our local EDC who is working diligently to improve our community.
Join the EDC and make a difference. I know each of you have deep feelings of what you'd like to see in Lehigh's future. You can be a part of shaping our community's future. Help stop the negative and promote the positive. End the blight.
Encourage businesses to come to our town. Make an economic impact that will improve the quality of life for all who live here. Encourage our local realtors to form a realtor association in Lehigh Acres to help. Demand the cleanup of blighted homes through code enforcement.
We gave county government the money through our taxes. It's not coming back in the way it should. Make Lee County accountable by putting Lehigh first. Economic impact is the only way to create jobs, provide facilities for our residents to enjoy, and allow us to live, work, play, shop, go to school and pray IN Lehigh Acres.
The EDC is creating a call to action. Get on their train and help, instead of criticizing or just talking about what's wrong. Be a part of what's right.
My Pastor John Baschieri always tells us, "If you always do what you've always
done, you'll always get what you've always gotten." Well, look around our community and see what we've gotten and what we could get if we gather together to make a difference.
