In my opinion what people want is something spectacular which does not equate to neon. I think we should even think about something creative like maybe using LED lighting.

I am very proud to have called Cary my home for more than three decades. Here my wife and I, along with many other Cary citizens, are extremely fortunate to have realized the American dream: We live in a beautiful place where we can raise our families, work in satisfying jobs, and enjoy the good things that life has to offer.
In other emails I received a solicitation from Goose Busters III. This business uses border collies to chase away geese which I think is an interesting idea.
Cary was named the third safest in the nation among municipalities with populations of 100,000 to 499,999 by CQ Press.
There were several notables in the crowd including former mayors Booth and Ritter. Mayor Ritter told me that he brought in the first tree for the first tree lighting 24 years ago. I would like to know more about that event.
I expressed my displeasure with the direction the consultant was going and that I would find it difficult to support anything that would lower our standards or place more of the infrastructure cost burden on the citizens.
Cary’s ordinance only allows animal control to give callers one option when reporting a stray. That is to have the animal carried to the shelter to be euthanized. If the ordinance were changed to allow TNR as an option then more cats would be saved and the costs of the animal shelter would be reduced.
Wednesday I met with the CEO of the Triangle Sports Commission. He is currently working on getting the 2018 Youth Olympic Games to the Triangle. Economic benefit to this area would be roughly $260 million.
Because of the holiday schedule in November, I had to write the December version of Cary Matters early. The main topic will be on cell phone coverage in Cary and what we are doing to resolve some of the issues.
This week was another busy week as mayor. It included a work session on the future of parks, a taping of Cary Matters, and a short council meeting.
