The paper (May 29) reported that a county agency is getting involved in helping citizens deal with problems with trash collection. It is admirable that they say that they are addressing this problem even though it is really not their job. “Who else would they call? They can’t say ‘No’ to citizens,” the spokesperson said. The agency is addressing a legitimate concern.
What county agency is addressing the concerns of the thousands of hungry children in the county since the health department has shut down the preparation of sandwiches for them while school is out? Practically every church in the county contributed to this effort, which has created no problems for years and years.
What county agency is addressing the concerns of homeless citizens who have no shelter, no food, no bathrooms or showers, no health care, etc.?
These citizens of Cobb County have more serious problems. Programs they have depended on for more than 32 years, with no problems, have been ended by health departments regulations. These citizens have life-threatening issues.
Who speaks for them?
