700 show to help clean up West Mesa!

The community spirit is alive and well in Northwest Mesa. More than 700 people showed up to participate in the Top 2 Bottom clean up on Saturday. In these tough economic times, its easy to worry about our own problems and not care about the community as a whole. That is why it is even more remarkable that so many people turned out to participate. Congratulations to Councilman Richins, the West Mesa Community Development Corporation, the Boy Scouts, and everyone else who participated. Thank you for taking pride in your community.

Let's hope that the rest of Mesa gets the hint and follows suit. There are plenty of places throughout Mesa that could use a little clean up. Even in nicer neighborhoods, foreclosures can be a real eye sore. I hope the other councilmembers will place their attention to other community building projects.

Richins is a great leader and a great asset to this community. he is young, energetic, loves mesa and is a hard worker that wants to see positive change. he is open to ideas and in thinking outside the box. I hope he runs for Mayor when his terms are up to keep the momentum of what Smith is doing.

Only great community leaders can get 700 people to go out and clean up the community.
