To the Editor:
I'm submitting my opinion to the Beth Stacey roundabout that I read about in The Citizen. I agree with Edd Weiner on how we are perceived and "managed" by the higher powers.
In addition, the conditions of that intersection does not require monies wasted on consultants to achieve a result superior to making this a four-way stop sign intersection.
We don't need to be impressed with design when Lehigh is left to the wayside and proper road signs and lights are a necessity for safety reasons, and when roads are in such terrible disrepair that we look like a third world country.
Please excuse me, but I could go on and on. I am extremely disappointed by the Napoleonic rules and rulers our local government and regret moving here.
I did so hoping, since this is part of the U.S., that change was in sight and I wanted to be part of it.
In nearly three years that I've been here, I can see that this change for the better will not occur in my lifetime, since the opinion held of us Lehigh residents is that we'll get what we deserve.
We are treated as farmland with dirt roads, yet we're not allowed to have a hen for the eggs we consume.
Small and minority businesses are subjected to persecution because they distort the image of the "metropolitan city" of Lehigh Acres.
Only an influx of new blood with progressive ideas in our local government will save us from "ghettohood."
