I have spent a little time reflecting this weekend as to some of the things that go on around Havre and peoples response to those same things. For instance, the Corrector has posted numerous stories about many of the questionable decisions that the Havre School board continually makes, yet the filing deadline came and went with only one challenger to any of the board positions. A hearty thank you to challenger Mark Magelsson for stepping up to the plate. Judging by the scores of comments that were posted on each of those stories you would have thought we would be beating off challengers with a stick yet that isn’t the case. Fridays HDN reported that one of the incumbent candidates stated that they were running again because they wanted to make sure the school budget stayed on track and wanted to help the students. The HUH? heard here in blogger land sent all of us into a weekend depression. (keep the budget on track by wasting 200 G?)
What do you think it would take to get people to get involved with what is happening about town? A quick tally amongst our blog contributors found that we average 2-3 night at home and not involved in some meeting, function, or other because of concern for the community. As we attend these meetings and so forth we find there are a very small number of people that actually care enough to get involved. We are at a loss
WHAT IS THE ANSWER?
