This is an open comment to Cheryl K. Sanders, county commissioner for District 2 in Franklin County. Commissioner Sanders, even though you continually remind us that we, the residents of Alligator Point, have neither the influence nor the votes to impact your position, please do not forget us. While our numbers may be few, our contributions to the tax base are statistically significant. My spouse recently said, "I had no idea we'd ever pay so much to live in a place where the county wouldn't repair a road destroyed by a natural disaster."

Please help us. Not hearing from you is being interpreted (correctly or incorrectly) as lack of interest and/or inability to impact positive change for us. Thank you.
