In a previous blog post, I reiterated the seriousness of Plainfield's financial predicament:
I am also focused on finding additional ways to mentor young people (this is part of what I do in my professional life as an educator)--specifically, getting them to focus on education as the way to "win the future." I think that the hierarchical structure of our priorities is out of whack--education remains the key element in engendering success.
A focus on protecting cronies and jobs and maintaining the status quo sends the WRONG message to our young people and hurts our city as a whole. We need to change how we do business, stop playing politics, and demand that the focus be shifted toward true reform.
What are your thoughts in attempting to answer the "WTF" question for Plainfield?
