Local politicians' actions louder than their words

I help senior citizens with medical bill problems. One senior citizen from the Miller Beach area of Gary told me she could not come to my office to get my help until she got two new tires. Two of her tires blew out because of the terrible potholes in her area of Gary. That caused me to realize something.

Local politicians’ actions speak louder than local politicians’ words. The local elected politicians say they care about senior citizens and working people. But then they don’t promptly fix the potholes in their jurisdictions.

If these local politicians really cared about senior citizens and working people, then they would realize how much money and time a senior citizen or working person loses because of pothole damage. The local politicians may say that they care, but their actions tell the public – especially the voters – they don’t really care.

Remember that at election time.
