Opinion: Town to city: Stay engaged


Joe Weingardt, president of the Fishers Town Council, was right on the money in saying last week that community engagement with transition from town to city in a little more than 10 months is critical. The comment was made at the State of the Town Address, the last such event in the town’s history. We’re buoyed by his comment about development continuing unbridled. The activity Fishers is seeing now, with respect to development and redevelopment, is but a taste of what’s to come. We believe such projects will even more put Fishers on the map and make it a magnetic destination for relocating businesses. The schools are top flight, the amenities continue to grow, the retail sector is booming, and all of that adds up to make it a great place to live, work, play and raise a family.

New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie last week conducted his 100th town meeting. Some governors don’t have one in four years. Now, before you go thinking it’s all about the 2016 campaign, think again. He has brought about REAL change (as a Republican, no less!) in a state that previously had shown a certain restraint for such. He says he cares, and he shows he cares. Maybe he actually will be the one to sideswipe Hillary Clinton and gain the presidency.
