Who is speaking for us?

I attended the Downtown Roanoke Inc. public meeting last night. Earlier in the day as you might have read two Councilman held a press conference to propose valet parking service to alleviate downtown parking issues.
Tell me, do you remember any Councilman holding a press conference to support Countryside remaining a golf course? The answer is “no”. Those of you who were actively supporting the tickets that supported Countryside last year recall who did openly support us.
I know most of the Countryside neighborhood assumes that we have some support on Council. It is time for these members to come out of the closet and declare their support publicly. If not let us look to those who will support us.
Politicians are gearing up for the next election and jockying for position. I also see us being left out in the cold. It is time for us to show we are a voting block to be recognized and wooed.
