Mr. Mayor, I own a business in the main shopping district and I’ve got a complaint.

Well, what seems to be the problem?

There is too much graffiti. Kids are always spraying words on the front of my store.

That isn’t good for business, I’ m sure.

No, it’s not, and it looks terrible.

I agree that graffiti is a serious issue. We cannot ignore it.

What are you planning to do about it?

I think we need to study the problem. If necessary, we’ll increase the police patrols at night in this area.

Thank you for your help, Mr. Mayor. You’ve got my vote in the next election!

I think the city should try to make more houses available to people who don’t have a lot of money.

Here Malinda is referring to the fact that in the U.S., city governments often provide subsidized housing or rent controls in order to guarantee affordable housing for everyone in major metropolitan areas.
