Glad she spoke up

To the Editor:

I watched the Fairmont City Council session on TV yesterday. To my surprise, a woman I know, Vicki, was speaking to the council. She was standing up, by herself, sharing her feelings about the issue of businesses closing, lack of employment opportunities that would afford families the ability to support themselves, and recreational facilities that are affordable for families.

Vicki shared that many people living in Fairmont are struggling with the same issues. I feel the City Council placated Vicki, but she held her ground on the issues she is so passionate about. Vicki said Fairmont is a difficult town to live in. I agree with everything you said, Vicki. You are a much greater person than any of the City Council members. Thank you for standing up for me.
