City Council Issue

Here is a city council issue that I just came across and that no one has touched, and likely will not touch. 25% of our youth under the age of 18 are living in poverty in Decatur. This should be an issue, we should be addressing this, coming up with plans to change that, working towards that plan, talking about it. But, no instead we choose to focus on such frivolous things as a Starbucks. We all have a duty to each other as human beings, and we must realize that. 25% of our children are living in poverty, and I haven't heard anything being done to address that problem. No child should have to face this. Thoughts, solutions, comments?
