Imitation is the highest form of flattery. I was elated to read the comments of Su Connell echoing Diana Sexton, who has repeatedly stated that she would listen to the people of Payson and although they might not agree with her they would hear the truth from her. As recently as March 4, Diana said that very thing at a lunch table that Su, Diana, another friend, Ruth and I shared at the Beeline Cafe.
It is rewarding to me to hear that we have two potential council members who are willing to maintain a dialogue with the residents of the town and keep them informed as to what is happening.
Is this the year we get a "government of the people, by the people, for the people?"
Is there a better way to maintain the "hometown" climate in the face of inevitable growth?
My thanks to the paper for the coverage, and perhaps we will get the quotes of those that were not included in this issue.
