I read in present tense on the Chattanoogan.com this morning and I see two stories about water issues in Chattanooga. My wife and I, amongst many others, are constrained in work. My two daughters are out of work today because of the absence of this utility. The water company budget on infrastructure rebuild and repair is akin to a band aid brought to a bike crash on a gravel road. This is the second time since Aug. 22 we are without water.
Yet when I see opinion pieces in this publication none point out this deficiency at the local level or the national level. Funny, you who gnash your mouths at future candidates for president say nothing about the guy who won on infrastructure spending among other things.
So please pick up the phone and call your liberal conservative senators and congressmen, they are the ones that approved the trillion dollar deficit spending, and ask them to push your president into supporting our water company.
After all we live here in Tennessee, not some swamp in Virginia or Maryland. Politics are local, that is where I live, that is where my income tax, sales tax and property tax are generated. And while I’m on this box, call your liberal majority in Nashville. You know, the guys who voted $60 million more for their personal State House and Senate spending. With the windfall of sales tax income they should be rainmakers to Chattanooga or at least to our water utility.
My reality is this is where I am, not where I dream to be. I live today, not yesterday or the day after today. Speaking of rain, oops, that is topic drift.
