Looking Back: 2007 Reader Comments For The Village Board
Seven years ago, in July 2007, we published the first of our "Suggestion Box" series. These posts provided an open online forum for readers to offer suggestions, complaints and compliments for village leaders.
Today, we decided to dust off that very first "Suggestion Box," which was entitled "Comments for the Village Board."
A lot has changed from seven years ago. A lot has not.
The key topics of concern back then, according to reader comments, were:
1.) Paving (or not paving) Dorchester streets.
2.) Illegal immigration. (And that was during the Bush years.)
3.) Water quality.
4.) Condition of the business district and water tower. (Hey, one of those has improved.)
5.) Did we mention paving?
In the comments section of this post, you'll be able to see all the reader comments -- good and bad -- left back in July 2007.
Which ones are relevant today? Feel free to add your 2014 comments for village leaders.
