Democrats don’t care about Princeton

— — When are the citizens of West Virginia going to wake up. By now everyone should understand that Princeton is the low city on the totem pole. All of the 2,000 folks who signed the petition to have the sewer system upgraded on Stafford Drive should not have voted the Democrats back into office. This is the reward you get for being true blue Democrats.

Why do the people of this state continue to put career politicians back into office year after year? Haven’t you ever heard that variety is the spice of life? Whenever politicians continue to do little but still get re-elected back into office they figure the electorate is just plain stupid.

Do you all know or understand that Stafford Drive was built on a swamp and the officials at the time didn’t do a good job and yet they, too, were Democrats. Doesn’t this tell you something about a party who doesn’t give a darn about little ol’ Princeton.

Some day you people of West Virginia will wake up but I do not believe I will live to witness that heavenly event. Both Gov. Tomblin and Rep. Nick Rahall came to Princeton and gave us lip service in regard to this problem. That is how they respect and thank you for voting them back into office.

Wake up, they do not care about little ol’ Princeton, we are like backwoods people who don’t mean a hill of pinto beans to them.
