These are tough times, and people want their elected leaders to do more than blame things on the county or state.



They want their elected leaders to take more action, not less.



Work harder with the county and state to create jobs — not issue demands for an apology from citizens exercising their First Amendment right to free speech.



The people of Crestview should be seeing a city council that looks outside city limits to create a healthy environment for the business community to choose Crestview — not seek friendlier climes at the south end of the county.
