One can only wonder who is buying these grossly over priced homes?.
The black pastors in Tallahassee need to stick to preaching the word of God instead of steering their flock to the plantation owners who facilitate keeping minorities impoverished.
Is there a law tied to school truancy to parents welfare assistance checks? If you are on welfare and your child is truant then your assistance is cut off until your child is compliant. The truancy is a starting point that they need to fix.
It was disturbing to see a black minister in TV ads asking for campaign donations for Gillum. How did that turn out?
Well, why would people flock to a city or county where taxes go up constantly and crime is out of control? Our local colleges have long since dumbed down the curriculum so minorities can pass. Our elected officials are failures in the private sector. I know of one official/politician that did legal work in exchange for used furniture. The only bright side I see to our plight is U.S Rep Al Lawson is likely to be out of a job in January. And maybe Lorrane Ausley, too.
This is what happens to a community that has for generations been soft on crime, that has dumbed down education, that has promoted a “gangsta” lifestyle, that accepts with open arms multiple children born to single mothers and now flourishes in the welfare state.
I’m in the process of painting and updating my home. There are better places to live than Leon/Gadsden County that cost less and are safer.
