Crime is rampant, this once great city is in serious decline, seemingly having financial difficulties, overtaxed, filthy, falling apart, laden with dilapidated buildings and infrastructure, failing and closing schools, a financially strapped transportation system, lacking in necessary police and fire protection, and ready to toss dedicated and retired municipal employees' healthcare to hell and Emmanuel wants an unneeded basketball play "palace" in a wealthy community area and an unaffordable light show for supposed tourism? Forget what you were elected for? Do some GOOD with the time you have left in office...FOCUS, PRIORITIZE, AND GET REAL, MAN!
