To All Concerned Cedar Springs:
I have repeatedly said I was not going to get into this fiasco but the more I read and hear people talk that old saying comes back to me, “You have the right to remain silent but you don’t have the ability,” so here go again.
It is time for all parties to button up the flap on your Red Flannels and end this “blank” contest. I mean the School, City Hall, and the Red Flannel Committee.
I for one do not need a new logo, theme, handle or any other saying to know I am from Cedar Springs Michigan the Red Flannel Town U.S.A.
If the Red Flannel Committee, City Hall, and the School wan to end this BS before someone goes off and spends a lot of money to hire a consultant to give us a new logo you all can do it. If you have four council members who are sorry this happened then you have a majority to change the outcome.
If the Red Flannel Committee has to charge for the logo, then sit down and come to an agreement on the fee.
If the School needs to charge the Red Flannel Committee for the use of the parking lot, sit down and come to an agreement on the fee.
We as taxpayers of Cedar Springs have a right to say how our money is spent and I for one want the Cedar Springs Red Flannel underwear flyng from my light post, I want the Red Flannel logo on our police cars, I want the Red Flannel logo in the City Hall council room. I want that Red Flannel logo in as many places as possible and so should you all.
I do not think anyone really wants this outcome we are now faced with.
So button up that flap and celebrate Red Flannel Day in Cedar Springs, Michigan.
Sincerely, Bud Bailey
