To the Editor:

To the Newton City Council, I agree with your tough decisions recently and you are going to make some people mad, but you also need to look at your position in the future if you can promote other facilities to build here. Please do all in your power to help and look at the big picture in the future.

I believe we wouldn’t have all these budget cuts; more corporate taxes would be paid. Like in past years, we had Saturn, 3M, Barella, all three major industry providers wanting to build here. That would have created more work force locally and more local revenue. But being so Maytag-whipped, our city council voted not to make things possible to accept them.

I believe these hardships have come from bad decisions in the past from all aspects of the community not being more inclined to opening our doors to new industry and welcoming change.
