'Yes, we'll remember. We most certainly will.'

My letter is in response to last week's self induced United Monroe pat on the back for all the fantastic things they've done on our behalf.

Tardy in their reaction some taxpayers are now questioning this political committee's agenda and they are feeling the heat.

It will take another couple years but I patiently wait for the day when voters and the media see through the shroud of United Monroe and the damage they've caused:

164 acres that started the whole ruckus, an additional 56 acres to compensate for KJs legal fees, 1000 acres mapped out for another village, increased tax burdens, street lights shut off and now the 79 acre Smith Farm development lawsuit.

That's a very big bill we got stuck with all in the name of a set to fail movie theater and a group of enthusiastic locals that don't demonstrate the ability to work and play well with others.

For a political organization that wanted to stop high density housing they did an outstanding job at urbanizing Monroe and putting local government's hands into taxpayer pockets.

Yes, we'll remember. We most certainly will.

When enough of us do remember then it will be time for taxpayers to take back control.
