Politics in Paisley is a rough game. In October of 2007 the voters recalled three newer members of the city council who were proposing to modernize things to increase the population. In a town that has a sharp right turn in Main street to slow down the desert speedsters they should have known better. The eight-man football team has not played in two years for lack of players and the population is less than half of the 350 level of the late 1990's. Attendance at the school is so low it is at risk of closing and that will probably finish off the town. Hanging on to the past at the risk of becoming a ghost town baffles me, yet the recall vote was decisive. We felt like outsiders and I am sure we looked the part. We did not hang around long or spend any money.
