aae1049.. What are the higher priorities ? Isn't keeping businesses in our area a top priority? You say only for the elite rich enjoys the culture of Chattanooga. Are poor people a second class citizen to you ? You mean a poor person won't want to go to the Zoo, hear music, go to the Creative Museum or Hunter? Because they are poor they don't enjoy things that other people like? Are you the judge of all in Chattanooga? Have you asked them?
Soaka..again, poverty means you can't enjoy the non profits?
If you don't like what's going on in Chattanooga, elect local politicians that will create jobs, that in turn will help in revenues for the city. If the city doesn't make money our infrastructure does not get fixed, our home prices go down and we are left with a city like in the 70s.
A city is like a relationship..put nothing in you get nothing back. If both work for the greater good, the whole city wins.
It's sad to lose the very things that people come to Chattanooga for because we don't want to shell out $5. Tell that to your kids when you try to go to the zoo!
