We all have our pet peeves with Ocean City. And we all have ideas as to what we can do to improve. I have my ideas and I’ve been putting them out there on Patch for years. I want to know what you think too. We have an opportunity as a community to define some of the issues in the upcoming elections. Wouldn’t you like this election to be about the issues that are important to you?
What I propose is a series of informal community meetings at various locations throughout town. For the month of February let’s meet at the new Starbucks in Ocean City on Sunday afternoons. I’ll be there from 2:00 to 3:00 PM to take notes and to report back to Patch on the outcome of those meetings. If we overwhelm the place we’ll come up with another venue. And that invitation extends to second home owners too. You have as much of an investment in this town as the rest of us.
When was the last time anyone asked you what matters to you? I’m asking. Let’s move this town forward. We can implement positive change if we demand it. It’s the citizen of this town that lack a voice and a choice. Exercise yours.
