Letter: Broken promises

Enid News and Eagle

ENID, Okla. — Lies, lies and more lies. Promises broken from City Hall. As I recall, City Manager Eric Benson said that they were going to at least use the facade of the old Kress building when they build the new hotel.

Now I see in the Nov. 6 paper they are going to demolish the entire building. What a shame, more and more of our historic buildings are falling under the bulldozer.

City Hall is becoming more and more like the White House, with Benson starring as Obama. They don’t give a hoot what the people want, they just do as they please, all the while saying it’s for the good of the people.

I, for one, don’t need you telling me what you think is good for me! Why don’t you start working for the people instead of running this city government like a dictatorship? We are getting enough of that from our federal government!
