As the saying goes this too shall pass. The feeling dread and despair I had when it was realized that Hillary had lost to trump is the same feeling that I experienced when Cheryl Mayes lost to Joy Styles in the District 32 Council race.
In my opinion District 32 will suffer for the next four years as an individual with little to no experience as to how a City functions starts her reign. I have this feeling of hopelessness as District 32 begins a downward spiral. I fear individuals, such as, John Ingram, Roy Dale and other wealthy Republicans who now realize there is money to be made in Antioch and they now have a council person that may well sell District 32 for profit and gain; with little regard to District 32 residents.
Time will tell if I am wrong and my prayer is that “I am”, but that trump feeling of hopelessness from 2016 has now engulfed me once again in 2019.
