Comforts of Raytown

First I would like to congratulate Leilani Haywood for her wise choice to move to Raytown (1/18, Letters). I am in my 56th year living here. I think Raytown is the best-kept secret in the country.

The people are genuine and education is outstanding. (Two sons and two grandsons were lucky recipients.) Police, ambulance and fire department assistance can’t be beat. Taxes are reasonable. Access to all major highways is minutes away. In other words: all the comforts of home.

Raytown is hardly ever mentioned in all the comparisons with the surrounding communities. I think if they were, it would surprise everyone that we have the best right here in Raytown.

I’d like to say thank you to the Raytown Public Works Department. They do a great job of keeping our streets clear of ice and snow in winter. Whenever I’ve called with a concern, they have addressed it promptly, efficiently and with courtesy. We might have placed 19th in citizen satisfaction, but we do have a lot of good people working and living here.
