Reading the Wednesday (April 22) edition of the Coastal Courier, I saw the headlines where the mayor is once traveling in Washington. Hidden away on page 9A, you’ll read the story of a concerned citizen, Mr. Stuart, trying to inquire about matters that are important to him.

I think we need a mayor who cares as much for our city as does for the money-hungry people on Fort Stewart.
