Time to wake up and smell the coffee

COMMERCE — It’s time to take a vacation from negative thinking.  

“Is the glass half empty or half full?

“What is good about our town and what can we do to contribute to its longevity?  

“It is easy to criticize our city’s leadership – but I ask what recommendations do you have that will make things better?  

“What evidence do you have that your ideas have merit?  

“Do you believe in compromise?  If so, what kind of give and take might you recommend to further our city’s growth?”   

Commerce – it’s time to wake up and smell the coffee!

Dr. Robert E.L. Johnson, Jr.
