This is just an excuse to reopen the charter so that they can eliminate the recall clause.

Obviously not most pitts voters since they didn't show up to vote in the first place. This is why the communist/democrat party is poisoning liberty with police state bills taking freedom and taxing the crap out of the average person so while they gain power and control and suck us dry of every penny the next step is to control your mind but yeah like you said who really cares let's keep living lives of complacency and submission to big govt they know what's best for us and our children it's a brave new world after all where promiscuity and immorality rule under the iron fist of the police state. F'n clowns like you and the intrusive enemies of the constitution should be labeled enemy combatants and dealt with accordingly.

First off, I did show to vote. That was less the issue than the fact that the ballot offered no choice. Certainly no good choice anyway. But no choice for crummy mayor, and no choice for ward 5 councilor, who in my opinion, which obviously doesn't matter, is a city councilor who, in my opinion, demonstrates the same level of integrity in his position as a city councilor as he does in his position as a DCF monster. But anyway, it cost money for the current crummy mayor and his little brown nose "acting" chief to secure our city, and to hunt down 83-year-old men who violate the law by going through a yellow light on their way to hospital with heart problems, and lock them up in the PPD gulag, causing them to experience unpleasant memories and nightmares of 1944 Nazi occupation, and to deploy supervisors in the PPD on OT goose-stepping missions up and down Pittsfield's multi million $$$$$$$$$$ cultural district. Thus creating an illusion that we all of us much safer, in a police state.
