The recent letter to the editor from Bob Edwards, former Payson mayor, is on target for every point made from both a federal and local level.
Current public policies and actions are leading to loss of individual freedoms, irresponsible financial management and social unrest.
Responsible citizens are left in the positions of pay and pray. Continue to pay for all of the government inefficiencies and pray that the outcome of the 2014 and 2016 elections will result in leadership that will at least attempt to put the country on a responsible, moral and logical future course.
