Is Schenectady Cursed?

Sometimes I have to wonder with all the bad news from here. If it’s not the school board it’s the police department. Or it’s the crime rate or like today, it’s the city budget.

It’s like the same mantra year after year, like a steady cycle of defeat.  They cut services down to the bone and raise taxes to the breaking point.  Just as soon as we the taxpayer get ahead, they cut services and raise taxes again.

If you’re a person of faith, who actually likes where you live and still believes in our city.  If you like the great things that are happening in the schools (My two are thriving at their magnet school) then you know it’s time to pray.

Pray for those who understand they are public servants to keep doing the right thing.  And for those blocking the way for self serving reasons that they move or get run over.

Now’s the time for Moses to part the Red Sea.  The Red Sea of debt and taxation.

    Great post. I feel the same way. I want the city to change and to prosper–and we can pump as much money as we want into it’s development and we can use as much human wisdom as we want (and we should do those things!) but until the Gospel infiltrates the city and God moves through our prayers, I think we’ll continue in that same old “cycle of defeat”.

    Keep up the good posts!
