Trying again for what’s ‘right and just’

FI-Letter-to-the-EditorTo the Editor

Even with all my efforts to contribute, I still get no regard.

Circumstance and struggles with health and family problems have kept me in Glenville too long. But I feel I have responsibility to this community and to finding justice. I need to contribute and I still wonder why Reilly energy should be spent going down a political road.

I recall the pain of what happened to my parents after their years of service to this community. But I did well in 2003 considering I ran from nowhere.

Politician? No. I am a idea man. And I feel a responsibility to try one more time, especially for my parents, memory and justice. I’ll spare father right now, but there were times that my mother felt she lived on a island.

I’ll try, even with the grief. Even after what the Reillys endured and the lack of response by town leaders and even with complaints and requests unanswered, I feel another try. Even after being left high and dry by leaders I had been associated with after their many empty promises of commitments to everything from saving “my Greenwich Point totem pole sculpture” to projects I had started with Reilly funds.

My ideas should be heard even though speaking out has cost me dearly. I should get out. I will try again for it’s “right and just.”

I’ve had good ideas most of my life. Running for office just might help throw some good points out there for people to build off of.

I have ideas that will not only help our communities but I know will help all the communities that make up this great country. These ideas can be catalysts to improve “government and thinking.” I hope to start a new way of politically thinking.

I proposed boot camp for first time offenders in 1978. I had such hope. Ted Kennedy got on board, yet it was not until 1982 that Oklahoma instituted it. And “my boot camp vocational training,” that I felt important never happened!

I have not heard of any training, that would help people and country.
