Letter to the editor: Ask candidates questions on transportation, training, accessibility for disabled residents


I’m regularly amazed how the county’s chairman and the town’s mayor sleep at night time whereas numerous Sumter residents are struggling to outlive and acquire fundamental dwelling. The questions for elected and people in search of our vote ought to be: What have you ever achieved or will do to enhance Sumter? Allow us to check out accessibility and transportation for the disabled residents. As soon as once more training in our county.
I’m a disabled veteran in Sumter and upset that the town’s HOPE facilities, the town’s Liberty Road workplace constructing together with the brand new police station would not have automated doorways for wheelchair-bound residents. The query is does Code Enforcement test for correct doorways on buildings to fulfill ADA requirements or enable public buildings to function with out working restrooms?
The individuals working our public transportation on this county are doing an excellent job transporting our disabled and folks needing to go to their physician’s workplace with a restricted price range. I consider the town and county ought to complement their price range to supply bus providers on Saturdays, extra Repair routes, and the buying of latest buses.
I’m so upset that the mayor and chair don’t have any opinion or enter in our youngsters’s training aside from stopping by annually within the election cycle. When there isn’t a millage enhance for the previous 15 years, that has the impact of a price range reduce for training. I’m deeply involved in regards to the new racist 10-point grading system. I fastidiously hearken to individuals towards the 50% grading but help giving extra weight to superior lessons. It astounds me that the identical individuals towards the 50% grading had no downside accepting and receiving 400 factors on their SAT rating to assist them get into school. The ten-point system helps chosen college students get the Palmetto Scholarship: paid for by the poor taking part in and shedding with the lottery.
I nonetheless consider we should always vote towards the Penny for Progress if filth roads, new public transportation buses and routes and faculty millage aren’t on the agenda. Why did they schedule the primary penny tax assembly on election day? Do they need your enter?
