I have heard some residents in North Riverside asking for change for change’s sake. I do not believe this is good. I want a government that is fiscally responsible and finds creative ways to pay pensions, cares about the people in our town, listens and is transparent.
So I care that the people are served. And it so happens that this is the government we have with the VIP. I have read the mission statement and read the concrete actions; it is true. So to change for the sake of change would not be good.
