Ocala will never cease to amaze me. Instead of trying to promote real and permanant economic growth within the community via affordable housing, our lovely city council decided to take up the topic of Golf Carts and potentially allowing them on the streets legally. I have heard some bad ideas in my life, but this is near the top. Introducing elderly drivers on the streets in unprotected sardine cans, called golf carts; only opens them up for immediate certain death should they be hit by anything even closely resembling a real automobile. Ocala, we can and must do better. Hold our legislators accountable. Demand affordable housing and real, significant wage growth. They are the ones “working closely with businesses” after all.
