BJF: Urges all our citizens to watch video w/Strong Towns article

Billy Joe Fudge writes:
I know all our citizens love our community. I love our community, as you do. If you will watch this video and listen to the message with an open mind, hopefully you will begin to see why Ed, I and others continually and purposely speak about changing how we do things in our community. We do not have a grand scheme to impose our values or our concept for community development upon you, our fellow citizens in order to establish a name for ourselves. We do realize, however, that the way we are currently doing things is not improving our community but is actually contributing to its deterioration. This is not because our leaders who support the status quo are bad people but because they like all the rest of us have fallen into this transportation trap. All our community leaders and all of us should be able to see "the handwriting on the wall" after watching and thinking about the way things are, how they got that way and how we can very simply and over time change the way we do things. - Billy Joe Fudge
