Would You Look at That…

Who would have thunk it??  Gilbert was just ranked #20 for America’s Best 50 Cities to Live!  Of course, we know our wonderful town is awesome – but to hear the media talking about our “poor performing” schools, you would think we were some backwoods group of morons.

My question to you refers back to the “chicken or the egg” mentality.

What makes Gilbert so wonderful?  I have to admit I get a little ticked off when I hear our town officials telling us that Gilbert is ranked #2 for “safest cities in the country” and it is due to our wonderful police force… or Gilbert is struggling attracting new business because our limited government mentality or because our struggling schools are starting to get negative media…

So what does make our town so wonderful??  THE PEOPLE!!  Yes, crime is low – because we are generally good people… Our children do well in school – because we love our children and put forth effort into teaching them…

There are numerous ingredients into making Gilbert such a great place to live.  Those ingredients include teachers, police officers, town employees, businesses and many many more…but the staple is without a doubt the quality of the people that live here.
