As we approach 2012 we here at Freedom of Speech have been pondering about what the new year will bring. Here are some of the questions we need to ask ourselves.

Have we the citizens of New Albany had enough yet?

Will we finally have accountability from the new Mayor?

Will there be an end to the mismanagement?

Will there finally be an audit?

Will there be an end to the conflict of interest?

Does it exist? You bet it does.

Will there be an end to the same people sitting on multi-boards and collecting a salary from each?

Will we have qualified people making the right decisions with our money?

Will we be able to drive down our streets without having to worry about potholes?

Will our sewers finally be repaired?

Will our new City Council President be able to stand up to the Mayor?

These are just a few of the questions and issues for 2012.

As we close 2011 we need to become focused on the future of New Albany. Next year will be very interesting. We need to come together and stand up and be counted, things won't change if all we do is sit and talk about it.

All of us here at Freedom of Speech want to wish each of you a Happy and safe New Year.
