Thought he was going to do something for this town but like all the previous ones...nothing has happened. He won't even close the biker bar to save someones life!!!! As far as I know he hasn't even made any attempts to get some kind of industry in here. Real Estate taxes through the roof...no sidewalks in nicer neighborhoods. When looking at your real estate taxes you can see where the money is going...PENSIONS!!!! I worked for what I get now...never depended on milking the system and the poor residents of town for an additional wage that I never worked for. Why does everyone expect the gov't, which is broke to the tune of over 16 trillion dollars, to pay you a pension??? Never could understand that word....

How does pensions have anything to do with the mayor's office? How does property taxes have anything to do with the mayor's office? Funny how Topix is full of shade tree attorneys and arm chair politicians.

Who in the hell can do something for Harrisburg ? The only thing they have is Coal mines, and they can shut down at anytime. I have news for all Harrisburg has seen it's better days. Sahara is gone, Peabody gone, Amax gone. I don't even count American it's day by day there. Has anyone been watching the news prisons are closing down, don't be surprised when they shut I.Y.C down. I was a kid when they shut down Bowen center. My mother lost her job. Glory days are over Harrisburg. I can't understand how they can sustain the amount and pay of city, county employees...Reality check is on it's way !
