Hi Andy,

I surely appreciate your efforts to keep things in check regarding
Ranchettes Roads. Our family is in favor of keeping our road – Custer Ave. – north side –
dirt. We like the dust and slower speeds and challenging pot hole course. The horses
have specifically shared their love of our roads, too. So we are not in favor of paving
north Custer. I realize that Fargo gets a real workout so you all will do what you
need to do.

We would appreciate you not making a blanket statement indicating
everyone wants paving. We shared with George Webb just two weeks ago that we still do
not choose to be paved. As a piece of advise, avoid making any generalizations
about our neighborhood as they are quite familiar with our residents and their opinions and
desires over the last twelve years.

Be blessed,

What generalizations have I made? Show me one blanket statement that I have made. Please back it up with fact. Everywhere I can I tell everyone to make their opinions known. My opinion is to pave Fargo. This is a result of owning on the corner of Rodeo and Fargo for 19 years. I’m tired of the maintenance. My goal is Fargo only and I have the support of everyone on my south side. Others have come to me and asked for help. The rest of the Ranchettes is up to everyone who lives there. Most of the roads don’t affect me but my neighbors opinions do when they ask for help.

I’m glad you’re happy. Thanks for your help with Lyons Road years ago. I’m sure that took a lot of effort.

Just one more further point. I have spent about two thousand dollars in signs, a website and printed materials. My time spent on this issue is approaching ridiculous. The County created a flawed road design for the east/west roads that intersect Fargo. They need to fix it.

You have been to the website. There is a public forum and every email pro or con that I could get my hands on is posted. Please take the time to look at this site again. The whole site. Every opinion on this topic is not only welcome but is posted. To date the County has nearly 1800 hits to my site! They have had a realistic view of Ranchettes opinions of everyone that has made their opinion public. They have scoured ever line of that site multiple times. I have the tracking data to prove it. I have censored nothing and cherry picked nothing. If you know of a more fair and open way for anyone and everyone to publicly state their opinion and for anyone and everyone to view it, let me know. This was the best I could come up with and judging by the County’s hits, a pretty effective one!

I respect you opinion and your right to express it. I will post your email.
