I would like to express my appreciation to the mayor of Williamsport, Gabe Campana, for his ability to deal effectively with issues which are very important to this city. The mayor had to deal with the issue of, the destruction of a public park within the city last year. To his credit, he had given the youth that where responsible for the trashing of Memorial Park a chance to keep the park clean and safe. It did not work. Other people promised the mayor they would keep the park clean. I guess they did not mean it.
