It's unfortunate that the trolley can be used to take voters to the polls, but couldn't be used in a similar way for the parade. Perhaps seniors or the disabled would have appreciated being able to go to the parade and perhaps the city could have offered seating for them in the Perry Square area where the "special invited guests" were seated. These people are the ones that kept the city going with all their taxes and property tax $$.Then again, perhaps they would not have wanted to see the poor excuse for a Perry 200 parade. After all the hype,what a total lack of creativity. The money would have been better spent caring for the homeless and feeding those in need.What makes a great city is not spending money on towers in Perry Square (just one example), but compassion for the people. It is high time that Erie re-evaluates the priorities.

Typical sour, envious Erie grump. I saw plenty of elderly and disabled people lining the streets to watch this community celebration. We do a lot for those in need, but life in ant City has to be about more than just soup kitchens, clinics and housing projects. A lot of money has been donated for Perry 200, much of it from people who pay the biggest tax bills and donate the most to charity. Sometimes you have to celebrate life, not just gripe about what could have been done instead.

Without the H.U.D. Grant,(Taxpayers monies) the "Perry/Garvey 4 Hour Parade" would have been a backyard hotdog picnic on the bayfront.

It would be nice if life could be celebrated because everyone is safe,warm and well-fed. Not all seniors in retirement homes or the disabled have a way or means to seek entertainment.

Most Erieites are just hoping the homeless and hungry just kinda "go away". That's Christian love and national pride for you.
