Donna Pittman is a self center money grabbing white trash.

She will go to jail for her behavior. She is just plain old dumb.

People will remember and she will not get re- elected.

It's not just Donna, it's Joe Cooley and Pam Fleming (aka Stuart Anderson) too. They have all sold us out to Halpern the slumlord king. Halpern is the reason for most of our issues. We tried to tell people that Halpern and his disgusting little flunkies openly backing Donna was NOT a good thing but either people didn't listen or the votes should have been recounted. There are some truly stupid people that live here, too bad stupidity isn't painful.

People are paying attention now. Voters in my family have had enough. Bring that recall petition by now. That's true transparency for you. No transparency in the mayor's office. That won't do. Secrecy at city hall has got to stop.

Yes, we are paying attention. Getting rid of Donna is only the first step of many that need to be taken to get things on track. We need a clean sweep of employees at city hall and the court system too.

With a residential rental rate that is reported as "over 60%" the mayor better put it in high gear to protect our property values. I didn't pay much attention to Donna when she was on council. Her focus was always Arbor Day and Movies under the Stars. It just didn't seem to me that those qualifications could be useful in the position of mayor so I voted for a different candidate every election. Doraville needs competence and leadership at city hall now more than ever to stop the encroachment of slumlords in our neighborhoods and all along Buford Hwy. The look of Buford Hwy is sickening. Kudos to everybody who gets out and supports "power to the people".

And get rid of that sorry Police Chief who lets his illegal countrymen drive without a license.
Ever wonder why your insurance rates are higher in Doraville?

Look at the police reports. If council reads that the police department is not doing its job to protect the community then council can do something about the current chief or it can hire a new chief. Simple. Look at the facts. What's the crime rate and what crimes are reported? Look at the facts and decide for yourself. Go to the council meetings and ask for a crime report. Homeowners have a right to know and a duty to ask.

We are watching EVERYONE at city hall. It sickens me though that we have so many idiots that focus strictly on the PD and never see any of the other money waste and mismanagement.

its not the PD in general, but the leadership that people are questioning. with 3 sq. miles, there should be an officer in every neighborhood all the time and there isn't. there should be NO crime in Doraville with as many officers as we have and as small an area as they cover. the officers need to be VISIBLE in all the city and neighborhoods. don't get me wrong, we have some of the best officers in the country. they are just doing what they are told to do in order to keep their jobs.

I agree with both Josh and Sncerely. The PD is not a pimary concern right now, or shouldn't be. Their response time, whether they are in the 'hood or not, is a matter of minutes and I do see them patrol on a semi-regular basis. And I feel fairly safe in my neighborhood.

People should really focus on the waste and mismanagement in city hall and lack of cohesion among council members. All except Trudy seem to have their own personal agenda. Try to discuss it with them and they get defensive, pissy and whiny rather than own up to their record. As for Donna, we CANNOT afford 3.5 more years of her leadership. Look at all the meyhem she has created in just 6 months! And she wonders why people are so mean to her on these blogs....

A somewhat suspicious budget, crappy ordinance enforcement, leniency to slumlords, certain council members concern over poor Donna keeping her salary to the point of trying to delay hiring of a city manager, eagerness to let just anyone with checkbook in hand bring their crappy businesses to town, no vision for the city, total disregard for citizens and their input....THESE are the things people need to be holding city government accountable for. Until we do, they will just keep on keepin on.

Readers and citizens....get your priorities in order!

Are you talking about the leadership of the PD or the city?

do you really think its going to be put in writing that the PD is not doing its job? The officers are doing what they are told. Anything can be written on paper to make it look/sound good. Yes, look at the crime rate.
