By Rikke Van Johnson,
6th Ward City Councilman, San Bernardino

For the record my last name is Johnson. Van is my middle name. I have been searching my family tree and so far have not found any Dutch ancestry.

Also, just to set the record straight Scot Spencer was already entrenched at the San Bernardino Airport when I was appointed to the Inland Valley Development Agency and the San Bernardino International Airport Authority. I’ll admit some mistakes have been made, but I believe that we are heading in the right direction.

There have been a number of letters about San Bernardino lately with a negative undertone. It’s alright for you to complain, but anyone can do that. If you truly desire positive change, why not present viable solutions after your complaint instead of just spewing out negativity. You will probably say that no one will listen. If you don’t try you will never know.

I understand that this would be hard for everyone to do because some of you have personal agendas. Either you have political aspirations; or you are caught up in all of the negative propaganda that has been presented and feel you need to add to it; or evil is your dwelling place and resides deeply within your heart; or all of the above.

Nonetheless to those who persist to emit negative noise, I’ll continue to pray that you will come from under that shroud of darkness. Instead of just complaining and expecting positive change to take place because of your complaints, I’ll hope that you will strive and work to make positive change.
