THE PEOPLE SPEAK – County does not need city reject projects

— To our county commissioner Mr. Wallace,

First, we got a hospital in the county that Muskogee didn’t want. Now you want to send us a subsidized apartment complex that Muskogee didn’t want. What’s next, the Juvenile Detention Center now out on Shawnee Bypass or a casino and bar?

I can’t speak for anyone but myself but I sense most people move out to the county to get away from what’s in Muskogee, not bring it out to us.

I hope people in Muskogee County remember this next election time.

DONALD M. YOTT
