Whenever I read people's criticisms of local 'city watchers', I always think of a popular quote by Margaret Mead that reads as follows: "Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world; indeed, it's the only thing that ever has." She's right, and therefore, none of us should be waiting for a groundswell of public support. Armed with solid facts and analysis, we must remain steadfast in our belief that we deserve better from public officials. In this situation, we seek to shape public policy as well as restore credibility to our local governing institutions. The only way this will ever happen is if we continue speaking out.
