Letter to the Editor

Participate in process

Monday, February 14, 2011

Dear Editor,

It is citizens' patriotic duty to serve our country and to participate in government issues. City officials who have taken an oath of duty to uphold the Constitution and respect citizen petitions as indicated in Amendment One of the Constitution.

2009, 2010, 2011, the McCook Group campaigned through the news and support letters that historic West Ward could possible be rehabbed at the cheapest bid.

Through petitions, the group campaigned to bring the rehab of the building to a vote of the people.

Property owners signed petitions saying they wanted rehab of the building, but wanted the fire and police station located at another location.

The petition states as follows:

"We the undersigned hereby present this appeal to petition not to have the police and fire station at the former West Ward location.

"This concern is from the following residents of McCook and Red Willow County"

For more information, phone (308) 345-6097.

Say yes to a mayor form of government.

Dale Cotton,

McCook Group

  • How many signatures were on that petition?

    .....because if you divide $50,000 by that number, you'll arrive at the amount each person who cared so much would have had to donate to the cause in order to purchase that property outright, eliminating any need for the petition....
