How Long Have You Lived Here?Post: Hugh
How people use length of residency in Lake Mathews and the Gavlin area has always been a sore spot for me. There's always those few individuals that want to let you know they've been here longer than you, as if that means something special. It's like if you haven't been here from the beginning your opinions or ideas are somewhat diminished. How some people use the 'race' card these folks use the 'residency' card. They always use it as a 'trump' in time of need - like when you disagree on an issue.

I don't care how long someone has lived here, be it 6-months or 30 years. We're all part of the same community. New thoughts, ideas and trends come in, and that is a good thing. We have to advance according to the environment and conditions around us. My wife and I are new here, moved in 18 years ago. So, what do I know?
