Good Citizens of Rosalia

Unlike more progressive cities with established goals and realistic expectations, Rosalia has been hobbled for years by questionable financial expenditures that may not have received the much needed input of interested town folk. This has resulted in wasted effort, ill conceived and executed building projects and a general feeling of discontent by locals. Several recent examples come to mind such as the loss of critically needed parking to host tournament and large function events that only the school facilities can accommodate. This needs to be addressed and reversed. Work to Whitman Avenue was not to specifications. With more work planned utilizing the same Spokane engineering firm that has received large sums for consulting fees on many projects that have proved to be less than satisfactory to the community interests, including a questionable GRANDIOSE state funded airport project that will probably generate zero net capital for the region and yet BIG DOLLARS continue to flow into this "Bridge to Nowhere." Receiving grant monies should not make anyone less fiscally responsible or careless. Every dollar needs to be accounted for before proceeding with what appears to be less than common sense planning.

Starting immediately, local talent and resources should be consolidated and utilized whenever possible. I would like to encourage anyone wishing to see real, long lasting change under the current new mayor to attend city council meetings and voice your opinions since that is your right.

--Warren Strohl, Rosalia
