    Hmm… good question. I’ll have to think about that one. Probably try for a startup, I’d imagine.

    I personally would fix my street so I would never be flooded again.For over eight years I have been flooded everytime it rainsbecause when they did my street over they pitched it towards my homeand like one state worker said”they put you in a fishbowl”.I have lost almost everything and everything in my basement,replaced my furnace twice,my hot water tank three times,my washer and dryer twice.I also have a legal town drain easement that runs thru my backyard that brings water into the back.I have called all the town trying to help me seeing how it is not a state st.but as if everyone knows my council person was arrested for taking bribes!!The last rains also made sink holes on the side of my house along the backyard,pieces of my foundation.I am a fixed income so I figure that is why noone will help me.I had a laywewr but havent heard from in overa year he wrote a letter to the town but that was the end.The fireman are wonderful and come everytime,a town employee came for the first time in all these years because i told the fireman i have been trying for over eight years to get help!!The firemans made a comment when I told himI cant even sell my house till they fix the street said I wouldnt buy it!!
