Ted Donham: Modesto officials need to listen

January 25, 2014 

I was not in attendance at the Modesto City Council meeting described in the letter “Open letter to Modesto councilwoman” (Jan. 21). Having contacted others who were there, it seems the writer wasn’t exaggerating. I, too, find it frustrating to hear the lack of concern exhibited by council members. These elected officials need to listen to the people they represent. The Wood Colony annexation is a grave concern to many west side residents. The city needs to leave the Wood Colony area alone. Developing this area simply won’t attract businesses and jobs.
