New Mayor of Alexandria

Seriously, can we please stop the madness with this clown of a Mayor we have. It's time to get someone in there untouched by the local millionaire village idiots and con-artist local contractors we have. It's time for transparency and good government.

Amen, amen and amen.
Who are the property owners where Roy wants to locate the new technical college in downtown Alexandria?

Interesting enough - my biggest gripe with downtown is proprietors who haven't maintained their property have held the progress of downtown up by waiting for a buyout like the community college being located downtown. The city has yet to fine or enforce the city ordinance on dilapidated commercial property downtown but has made a valiant effort to enforce the same governance on residential properties - especially down lower third (as they should within the governance of all city properties if not met by the international codes adopted by the city).

We need a more transparent administration. I'd rather vote someone in new and give them an opportunity to do what's right and allow local organizations/non-profits a clean slate with someone who doesn't hold grudges or make personal grievances public conflicts.

Who do you think puts people like we have in office?
Show me an honest man who wants to sell his political soul to rich contributors.
They're rare as hens teeth.
Politicians spend the first half of their term paying back political favors and the second half promising favors to fund their re-election,
all the while lying.

Just do like I do: walk into the voting booth, close yer eyes, hold yer nose and press a button.
Same outcome no matter who wins.

Americans today are witnessing the end of democracy. In the years this world has left, they'll talk of our fall just as they do all the great empires of the past.
And we stand, we watch, we complain but we do nothing.
If it makes ya feel better...blame somebody.
But guilt stands in the mirror.

Progressive change doesn't come to those who lay and wait (or in your case, blindly vote) but to those who take action in seeking a better outcome.

Our mayor is a idiot. He is screwing over our city. We would be as big as Shreveport if it wasn't for him. Any other Roy haters out there?

Hello,
I'm Nicholas Wright. You can just call me Nick. My grandpa's cousin is Darren Coutee, the first African-American Chief of Police. I am running as a Republican and would like your support.
Yours truly,

Mr. Wright, we are not voting on your relatives, we are voting on the best candidate.
So please, give us some information about Nicholas R. P. Wright.
Your previous claim of being related to numerous United States presidents doesn't carry much positve importance for me to vote for you considering many of the presidents were scoundrels.
And if you believe we are all descendants of Adam and Eve, shouldn't you be related to all the presidents?
