Dear Editor,

For clarification, AIM refers to the Alamo Incorporation Movement, 2007 through 2009.

Dear Editor,

Within your Express Forum are examples of commentary that claims ignorance was the reasons for a majority of Alamo residents rejecting incorporation. There are volumes of e-mail from former incorporation supporters directed to neighborhoor reps and participants that specifies ignorance as the reasons for the NO vote. Certainly, those authors must be given the opportunity to provide their positions because neighborhood reps will not violate their confidences.

The reality, once again, was a majority of Alamo residents rejected the AIM incorporation proposal because it did not define the structure of government, provide plans for its operations or specify budgets for voters' consideration. Alamo voters did not reject incorporation, but did reject the lack of a realistic business plan for the proposed Alamo government.

Let's return this exchange to its primary purpose of requirements for good neighbor policies by organizations as well as residents in consideration of their role in our communities.

Dear Editor,

You were invited to provide journalism in how good neighbor policies supports community relationships. The extend of your participation to date is to invite disconnected and unrelated comment from sponsored pseudonyms as commentators. Such commentary takes a critical subject adrift into isolated review that is best served by public review of known comment on these unrelated subjects including your forum during January to May 2009.

Communities are not built on the lack of good neighbor policies by organizations, businesses and institutions in our communities and neighborhoods. That is the subject for your journalism and it is only addressed to your capabilities.

Dear Editor,

Subscribers among major corporations have provided news service researchers their corporate policies for community engagement as "good neighbor" programs for their facilities and support for the communities in which they are located. In commentary, Cece, a director in one corporation's community engagement organization, noted that governments and districts do not have the same stake in communities as corporations, "communities are not their customers."

News service editors responded, governments and districts are owned by the residents of communities and are obligated to be good neighbors in the communities they serve. Yet, editors were quick to note that governments and districts often feel they are authorities in communities rather than working is service to communities' residents.

Do your readers believe their governments and districts are good neighbors in their communities?
