Thank you, WWAY, for focusing on problems in Bladen County. So much that is wrong with our county government is swept under the rug, just as the sheriff's department would sweep the jail controversy under the rug, were it not for the attention you have focused on it.
County officials, content to allow things to go on "as usual," make little effort to improve conditions for Bladen residents. Little is being done to attract industry, and when it comes to properties, owners are allowed to do as they please even when it harms the environment.
The county is deteriorating at an alarming rate. Most of its residents rely on government entitlements to get by, and the county commissioners and Bladen Community College could make a difference by joining together to try to attract jobs.
But in Bladen, it's business (the do-nothing political kind) as usual.
Thanks again, WWAY, for reporting Bladen's faults.
