Bladen County Commissioners will never address issues of importance. Our impoverished county is too poor to support an automotive dealership, but we have dozens of used-car lots. In fact the county looks like it is turning into a huge used-car lot.
Bladen is dirt poor. But are the commissioners or any other organization attempting to attract industry? I don't think so.
The county government allows the county to become more blighted with each passing day. Ride down some of the major highways, and you will see what I mean. No wonder industry does not want to locate here.
If you live in Bladen, you are free to junk up your yard. It's a redneck privilege. And when passersby see the junk in the yards, they throw their trash out of the windows of their moving vehicles. That's why Bladen has so much litter.
Robeson used to be the armpit of Southeastern NC. Now Bladen has achieved the honored title.
My son attended Bladen Community College. But is there a job for him in Bladen. Hardly. He is going to adjoining counties to look for work.
Shame, shame, shame on Bladen leaders.
