        Embarrassment...our leaders should be embarrassed for the way the AMERICAN people, especially our Veterans are treated.

        The memorial is a good thought, but as Ms. Porter pointed out, many in this country can't even afford to properly feed themselves or their families.

        It sounds like to me, the Mayor is disconnected from what the people of Killeen really need...a strong leader that puts the interest of THE People first.

        I am embarrassed by the mayor. It's clear the mayor has no perspective of the current status of his residents or a real grip on his city. The federal government still considers the shooting "workplace violence." I find it disconcerting and inappropriate for the mayor to be disappointed or embarrassed. Being that it is a military town and half of the Soldiers stationed on post at the time of the shooting have since been discharged or retired (thanks to an administration that sees less need for military personnel), those that would be likely to give (many of them) are not even in the area any longer. That is what it means to know the people you serve, there are many permanent residents but the ones that are touched the MOST by the tragedy have moved on and are making bigger progress in their lives. I am happy to say that I have since moved my life out of the city with my retired Soldier. I am unhappy to say that I still own a home in the city and cannot get it sold thanks to the mayor and his administration who keep annexing property and allowing the building of new homes. GET IN TOUCH WITH THE PEOPLE YOU SERVE, SEE IF WHAT YOU WANT FOR YOUR CITY MATCHES UP WITH WHAT THE PEOPLE ACTUALLY NEED,

        Finally someone tells it like it is! Real embarrassment is having a mayor that didn't change status quo of this city.
