Does anyone agree with me about the following:
1. There is no real transparency in his government, same old politics, favors for friends, etc.
2. He is a crybaby about the Community College;
3. He has alienated most county employees;
4. He has totally ignored the wishes of the citizens of this county about the Community College and Pleasant Ridge;
5. His self appointed "committees" are a sham, they end up recommending what he wants;
6. His only ally now are the nitwits at the Erie Times Rag;
7. The food at his excuse of a restaurant is overpriced and frankly not that good (is he Italian or even know what Italian food is all about?)
8. No way will he ever get re-elected.

Topix won't allow the words I want to use, but I totally agree with the above post. BG is totally out-of-touch with the electorate. Hopefully he'll only get one term cause Erie County can't afford more than 4 years of his misplaced pleadership.

I have never been to his restaurant. I agree with the rest of your points. He really seems like a cry baby. I do however think we are in deperate need of a Community College, but not at taxpayers expense.

Grossman has always been the kind of guy unable to see that others are capable of having a viable opinion that differs from his. I believe that Grossman is so self absorbed in his own way of doing things that anyone who offers an alternative view is dismissed.
Think about how this has happened. Grossman, the owner and operator of many business ventures, mostly restaurants, would have under his thumb scores of lower waged employees. Grossman, as master of these simple domains developed his feelings of superiority over very vulnerable subjects who, if they wanted to remain employed, had to jump as high as they were told by this self important small businessman.
Grossman seems to have carried this mastery over the weak into a bigger arena where his bullying tactics and belief that his way is the only way no longer works. It is indeed a wise man who can see this and adjust accordingly. Grossman may be smart but he is not very wise, although he will always think he is the brightest mind in whatever room he occupies. This is why Grossman will ultimately fail.

Thank goodness Topix won't allow the words you'd use Paul. Such a big expert on everything from all the way down there in Georgia, gee that's terrific. If Erie is such a hopeless place then why are you still so interested in what happens back there hmmmmmm ?

I bet DiVecchio doesn't sound so bad now, does he? I don't know what the hell Erie County was thinking. As the election cycles go on, our County Exec's keep getting goofier and goofier.

Why not apply to the future community college as an eubonics professor? You seem eminently qualified.
