After hearing Billy Shreve remark on the Kojo Nnamdi show that his opponents were less powerful than the honeybee lobby, we got a bit hot under the collar. Some of us have received letters from members of the previous BOCC that stated that our opinions were not under consideration because they were elected with the opinions they held at the time. Could it be that a serious lack of voter participation in the county has perpetuated the idea that constituents’ opinions do not need to be routinely considered by our representatives?
We have created a quick and dirty version of letterhead for our readers. Please consider using it for written communication with council members. People matter.
“I’m the one who gets all the calls when someone needs help. When someone’s daughter runs away or someone’s son overdoses or their neighbor is found intoxicated or near death. I am the one that gets the calls.”
Good news Frederick County! Billy Shreve is the answer to our drug problem. Yesterday on the Kojo Nnamdi show Mr. Shreve informed us that for an entire year, that’s right a whole year, he has led drug awareness efforts in our local high and middle schools. It’s true! He felt compelled to do so because his phone won’t stop ringing off the hook with everyone trying to get him to find their daughters, deal with their son’s overdoses and “Dagnabbit Billy get my drunken neighbor off my front yard”! He had to do something, all these calls were interfering with his skiing and budget meetings.
And it’s working! Even though for some strange reason this recentFrederick News Post article doesn’t mention Savior Billy by name, we have had zero heroin deaths so far this year! The answer to all of our woes was right in front of us the entire time. Thanks Billy!
