Weighing in on the mayoral race

Regarding the mayor's race, we have one tried and true mayor, with a good record and accomplishments that can't be denied. John Wise goes out of his way to be accommodating, cares about people and lives quite graciously through some staunch criticism. Older and Wise-r is a good combo. I hope at the time to vote, people will think, not act upon impulse and just vote for a friend, regardless of which friend that may be.

I have an ongoing problem that has me on anti-depressants by day, sleeping pills at night just to cope with a situation that seems impossible. You can’t reason with one with no reasoning ability. John took his time to see about helping me with this, as best he could, and set up a question and answer program for those who wanted info concerning the city. If you didn’t ask, don’t gossip and gripe.

If anyone knows of a solution to 86-year-old people being heckled by people half their age, please let me know. Don’t suggest moving unless you can pay the expense and do the work. Were that an option, I’d have done it. Considering my age and condition of my health, a move would be prohibitive in the first place. The police can’t control it, management won’t control it and the owners don’t want to hear about it, so we have this blight on society to contend with, but how?

Whomever threw that half-starved, blind and deaf cat out on Blake Street recently needs to be hooked up behind a car and drug a mile or two down the gravel road and left there to see how it feels to be neglected, injured and thrown out to die by starving or to get run over. I’m sure there must be a torture corner in hell for people who abuse defenseless animals.

I picked the cat up out of the street, bought some food and a very kind neighbor stopped by who called her veterinarian to see if someone would take it in. These same-minded people take their elderly and dump them someplace, too. I know, as I worked three summers in a nursing home. It is tragic the way some peoples’ minds work, if they work at all.

People, if you don’t want to care for a pet, don’t get one – they are at your mercy. If you can’t afford one, give it to someone who can, or call the Angel Paws Pet Rescue in Kent 206-272-0582 and they will come and get it. Any size or age. Don’t abuse animals, heckle the elderly who can’t fend for themselves, and think on subjects before you vote in your next leader.
