There are rare times when the voices of citizens are heard by our politicians. It is nice to report (Laurel Leader, March 21) that County Executive Ken Ulman has indeed not only heard the voices of the people, but has positively taken action to reconsider the proposed homeless facility in the Beechcrest Mobile Home Park in North Laurel located on Route 1 near Whiskey Bottom Road by looking elsewhere. Mr. Ulman should be congratulated for having the foresight to realize the problems such a facility would create in the neighborhood and the fact it was never a part of the "Revitalization Route 1 Plan."
There is a saying that "action speaks louder than words." In this case the immediate actions taken and the fact many citizens came forward expressing their concerns is a testament that on occasion politicians do listen and act on behalf of their constituents.
