I've been thinking really hard. 

Since no one here is willing to run (myself aside, but I'm probably not a viable candidate in reality) for office......

Maybe the 'east end' or the 'amenity' of Middletown (as a current city council member called it on their campaign website) should just secede.

Secede?!??!?  Did I just say SECEDE!??!?!??!?

Yes. We'll call it NEW MIDDLETOWN or maybe SECESSIONVILLE or perhaps NOLANVILLE - I like that last one - whatever we call it....

Let that side of town so desperate to re-vitalize itself spend its money without us paying the bill.

I know it will never happen - but just remember how a neighbor about 8 miles south of us was was its own independence that made it happen.  No shackle to the 100 year old ideas, no responsibility to decrepit and decaying infrastructures - just pure independence and a fresh start for all those who want something better - not just more of the old.

"Success usually comes to those who are too busy to be looking for it."—Henry David Thoreau
