Hillsboro Mayor Verbally Fires at Revitalization Critics

Mayor Drew Hastings didn't mince words when he gave a statement Monday to city council that Hillsboro was falling behind cities in surrounding counties as far as improvements to the city.

.

Hastings verbally went after some community members that he said "As a comedy friend of mine of 25 years in the comedy business once said- You can't fix stupid. And we have some stupid people in this town, frankly, that are keeping this town from what it could be".

.

After the meeting, Mayor Hastings explained his statement by saying there are some people who are "spreading misinformation due to their own personal interests". He added- "There have been some perfectly good efforts on revitalization in this town, but there are some people who don't like the ideas for no good reason".

.

"D" Building codes and enforcement were also a hot topic as well.
