Why Care About Flemington Now?

As a resident of Flemington Road for nearly 8 years, I can say that the quality of water here is bad and I don't think has been tested since I moved back here in 2004. Also, those who decided this don't realize that this is a blue collar, hard working, poor community who do not have the same benefits of those who live in Wilmington. We can't even get TimeWarner cable or Charter here. New Hanover County barely knows we exist as a community that pays taxes and contributes to this county. The County does not meet it's end in making sure we have the same services as the rest of the county like having bus service. Many think we are part of Brunswick County! Considering what is not offered to us since we live across the Cape Fear Bridge, the least they can do is offer free water! This is a tacky time to be greedy in light of the economy and seems the County used a magnifying glass to squeeze all the money they can gain from a 'unique' community that consist of mostly elderly people and blue collar citizens who don't even feel that New Hanover County even cares about them or their needs in 2008! By the way, when was a WATER TEST last done on Flemington Road? When was bus transportation offered? When was cable TV offered? When did WWAY TV 3 or WECT TV 6 come in clear with rabbit ears on Flemington Road? Did the County care when tropical storms and hurricanes hit Flemington Road and caused floods and damage? Does the County care about the industries across the road that blow an awful lot of smoke drifting in our area when the wind is just right? The county thinks we are fools and the County just don't care or think with their hearts or brains. Why don't they go pick on Landfall and those rich communities for the extra money they think they need so badly!
