The subject of my letter was to bring to light how inefficient and uninformed Midway's city council and mayor are. I compared Midway to Pooler to show that Pooler has professionals on their city council, while Midway has a mayor and city council with absolutely no concept of how to handle money, develop needed businesses and plan for the future.
