To the want to be mayors and councilors:
I’m inviting and expecting each of you to spend two hours at the Food Bank on any Monday, Wednesday or Thursday.
If you think it is a small space with six people working, try 18 or 20 on any Wednesday. Unloading stock while other people are trying to help in other capacities in our small space becomes unbearable most days.
Our problem is increasing with more people every day, and every week. Come see for yourself.
More likely than not, we will not have the big room in the school this winter where the firefighters and school students usually bring and count their collections. This means no room for mega vegetables, or beautiful gifts for all at Christmas.
At 74 years young and 26 years working and worrying with a smile (most times), and no wages to anyone, it is time we have a decent 3,000 to 5,000 square foot space to do a decent job. It is time in my book to take this load off me.
You want office?! Come meet us all. Poor people vote too. Remember your wages are our tax money. Also remember we are our brother’s keeper.
