A message to my mayor as follows: "Mr. Mayor: There seems to be so many city patrol cars in Lawton, OK one can practically "trip over them". There are also so many potholes on Lawton streets one could trip in those too. Many residential streets are missing sidewalks in some parts or the sidewalks are in bad repair. Lawton is not particularly bicycle- and pedestrian- friendly. It's no small wonder that former local mom-and-pop businesses have packed up and booked. Lawton is embarrassingly behind the 21st century. There's seems to be a bunch of fat lazy people in gas-guzzling vehicles and less exercise activity about town for good health. The landscape seems to be weedy in many places and there is way too much litter lying all over town. One ought to be embarrassed to call him or herself the mayor of this town. Buildings around town look well-weathered and could use some paint. The sheriff's bus with convicts in orange jumpsuits could take care of street beautification to save taxpayer dollars: litter cleanup for our community and residential neighborhoods. With Oklahoma's new Constitutional Carry law there is greater incentive for more good people to be lawfully armed about town. A well-armed citizenry as called for by our Second Amendment is the single best protection and preventive measure against violent crime. Police all over the world, even with best intentions, show up too late most of the time to save innocent persons from violent acts anyway, it seems. If I were to have my way, we would have the sheriff and the posse as was in the Old West. Please spend more money on construction workers and landscape workers and less on law enforcement. I wish to see more road graders, dump trucks, road rollers, paving machines and hard-hats on our streets and less lawmen. More men dressed in orange and less dressed in blue. Thank you and God bless! I vote in November and always remember."
