To the Editor:

It is sad to see Ace Hardware go, as it was Roth’s Fresh Market and the other tenants of Schoolhouse Square. The city council promised a lot of money for River Road re-development, only to divert the money to support Keizer Station.

Then we have a Chamber of Commerce that would rather set up shop in Keizer Station than support River Road where it all started. It is sad, but it is exactly what a lot of people were saying was going to happen before it ever started. I have been around since (the city’s) incorporation and have volunteered my time renovating the old Christian school for our first city hall, numerous hours with Keizer Little League, and other activities. I must admit I am dissappointed in what Keizer has become.
