I have a question for Ms. Kinietz-Boyden, who recently wrote a letter to the editor. In her letter, did she say she moved to Carmel before Jim Brainard was elected? So, she agrees it was the best place to live then before the mayor was elected? Just like it will continue to be the best place to live after Fred Glynn is elected, except our debt won’t be growing at $100 million a year and our tax rates won’t double again in less than a decade.
Carmel’s greatness is mostly the result of the people that live here. We are responsible for our kids excelling at school with the help of the teachers and schools that our school taxes pay for. Carmel Dads’ Club is great as a result of the parents and other volunteers that keep it going decade after decade. Our roads are the best maintained roads in the winter because of our great road department employees.
Just like in Washington, the biggest threat to our way of life is the debt that politicians build up, and just like in Washington term limits are exactly what we need to bring a fresh look at things and see what is hidden in the proverbial closets. Twenty-four years is too long to have one man in power. It’s time for new leadership.
