I agree 100%. The quality of life has increasing gone downhill in Bladen County the past few years. All the town of Elizabethtown is worried about is being pretty to attract the White Lake vacatiners and their kids to shop in the stores on Main street. Forget the town or the county trying to draw business here for more jobs unless someone they personally know will benefit from it.
There is a reason the County Courthouse is called the "PayDo"....the more money you can pay...the more doors will be opened for you.
I have lived many places but only in Bladen County have I seen actual 'good ol' boy' politics in action. I thought that crap was done with years ago but, then again, Bladen County for the most part is years behind most places.
Bladen County has so little to offer job wise.....most people's life goal here is to get themselves a 'gubbermint chek'.
