I want my town of Indian Trail to be known for positive things, such as our Pow-Wow, the new movie theater and the multiple events the town organizes at Crossing Paths Park. But time and again, we keep coming back to the cartoonish back-and-forth accusations. New council members are mocked and labeled as characters from fiction. Old council members are accused of corruption, over and over. Why? The town council approved one deputy now and plans to look at adding one during budget season. OK, that makes sense to me. The council decided to hold off on a leash law until the public safety committee could craft one. I’m more in favor of doing something right now, but again, I’m not going to scream at them over it. The town is looking to use the 51 acres it has to keep Carolina Courts and bring in new commercial. That sounds fantastic. I, along with several of my neighbors, just don’t see why there has to be so much drama over everything. The council can’t solve every problem within a few months. Granted, I didn’t vote in the last election, because I haven’t changed my registration to Union County yet, but I plan to do that and also get more involved. If we could get past the cartoonish accusations, I believe more people would join in.
