Letter about library and response to Drue Fergison

To the Editor,

In the paper last week, Drue Fergison said that the Rushford City Council looks down right disdainful because they chose to tell the library board that they (the city) just couldn’t take on any more projects to add to the already large debt that the people of this city are going to have to pay.

It’s very easy to yap about something when you have no idea what is going on.

That would be like me telling her that she should buy her kids something that the kids would really like even though I have no idea what her bills are, how much she is making, what future expenditures does she have to come up with, or anything else for that matter.

I didn’t see a lot of people from Rushford writing a letter to the editor.

I would like to see a new library, I would also like to see a new school, something we need more, in my opinion. The state also thinks that the dikes need to be redone plus a community center that isn’t finished, plus a lot of other issues.

I would say our City Council is being very responsible, most of them would probably like to see a new library too but like a good parent, if you give your child a new toy then can’t come up with enough money to feed them, are you doing the right thing.

I personally think, that the council was just trying to stop all the work if there is no way that they feel that they can come up with the money to help them.

This way, like a child, if they want the new toy and will go to work to find the money themselves, the parents taught the child a good lesson.

Our government and parents need to quit letting their kids come to them with their hands out, and allow them to say I want it, I deserve it, I don’t care how much money you have, you better give it to me.
