This borders on absurd, but since people have been contacting me about it, perhaps you can decide.
First, take a good hard look at the following logo for Media's newest women's boutique, Sassy Girl. Anything stand out or wrong about the silhouette caricature?
|Don't hate Sassy Girl because she's pretty|
I couldn't find anything wrong with the logo and many others couldn't either, however, Media Borough Council President, Brian Hall doesn't like it. From what I'm told, its apparently too provocative and the skirt is too short. Truthfully, I wouldn't have though twice about "a skirt being too short on a silhouette caricature," especially when it's up on an awning making it even harder to see.
The issue has been worked out and the logo is now up on the store's awning, but this just further illustrates how mis-managed Media's priorities are.
If he wants to ride around in a car and look a logos, fine. But perhaps it's time borough council elect a new council president who can get Media's priorities in order and handle real issues that have and continue to affect this town:
- A CMAQ project that has languished since 1999 at the cost of $1.5 million, with approximately $200,000 costing Media Taxpayers. This is the project that included the new traffic lights. Problem is, there still not hooked up or synchronized. See how long you wait at one of these traffic lights, when there is no perpendicular traffic.
Brian Hall and Monica Simpson both had two terms to manage this and it's still not working. Springfield completed a similar project in TWO YEARS!
- Publicly speaking up for a school like Nativity, or any entity that's been in this community for 100 years.
- Making sure people show up to committee assignments and meetings. Eric Stein didn't show up for 5 months to his MBA meeting and when he does he's late an unprepared. Is Peter Williamson still the treasurer?
- Being forthright with information on legal lawsuits (Third St. Bridge) instead of placating groups who's petition he signed.
- Better understanding the difference between a "Golden Opportunity" and a sales pitch from infomercial salesmen.
