Anyone see the full page spread the Reporter did on all the city's big successess last year? Interesting it came right before the election since the city's 2012 review was put out over a month ago.
Allen Smith wrote it. He's the guy that sits at the front table and pals around with the city folks. Anyone know why he gets to sit up at the front table with the city folks? He wasn't elected and he doesn't work for the city. Maybe he needs to sit in the audience like the other newsman from the Reporter and everyone else that doesn't have a city related position. Might make him a little more objective. Or maybe we all need to go to a commission meeting and ask for a seat at the front table. If they allow him to sit there, they should allow us, too.

Allen Smith is nothing but a kiss *ss who has the delusions that he's important that people like him. If he's the best the Reporter can come up with, then the Reporter might as well close up shop.

Are you upset that the city completed things last year? How can that be a bad thing exactly?

I'm not upset the city got things done, I'm upset with the timing of this article, right before the candidate's debate and right before the election. Why wasn't it published before or why wasn't it published after the election? The article doesn't give an objective view of the city's accomplishments. Yes, they are completing ADA project only because the Justice Department forced them to do it. Virtually everything mentioned in that article has also had a big downside for taxpayers which in all fairness to all commission candidates should have been noted.

Yes, they are doing ADA improvements because the DOJ forced them to. I'm not certain how it's bad that problems left behind by the previous city manager are being remedied but that's your prerogative. Other than that, was there something mentioned that you feel could unjustly sway the election?

ADA problems wouldn't have been resolved NOW if someone hadn't complained to the federal government.City doesn't bring things into compliance until its caught which is why in the last year it entered into another big settlement, this time with the EPA.

All EMS services CRAMMED into city hall at cost of more than $200,000.00 tax dollars.Meanwhile the old EMS station is being used as an expensive storage unit for the city.How has any of this helped Indy employees or residents?Big waste of money.

Yes but unlike you, he has the balls to put a by line by some of the stuff he writes.

Don't get me wrong...I'm no Smith fan, but you do bring up a point.

Smith's reporting leaves something to be desired, because he can't always get the details right...critical details...

OK, Big Stuff. Put YOUR balls on the line (if you have any) and tell us YOUR REAL NAME so we'll have it for YOUR bylines. Or are you one of those "do as I say, not as I do" Topix posters?

No, just one of those with an education who is intelligent enough to know the difference between anonymously calling out a person by their real name, and anonymously calling out another anonymous person who basically has no identity. Sorry that your lack of education has failed you. Spelled it out for you and I'm sure you still won't get it.

I am the link betweenn reality and the shadow world. My education is to a 3 rd grade level. That puts me ahead of you and most of the posters on topics. I make my living reading porn and masterbation. Good living but sometimes I wish I can marry my hand in a civil ceremony. I am also running for either board of the college or town commissioner.

Who am I ?

You're someone ready to call other people out for not doing things you won't even do, so guess that makes you a ball-less chicken with a warped mind. Cluck...cluck...cluck.

If your going to steal my monicker, could you at least use spell check (while removing your right hand from your crotch) so my fans won't think I've had an aneurism. Thanks.

Uh, Challenge, I mean "and your answer is". Thank the imposter for taking you off the hook for what can only be described as a "lack of comprehension". Perhaps you might post truthfully next time as "imbecile".

He may not be free spending but he IS ONE BIG LIBERAL. He also may be in tight with Micky Webb. We need commissioners for us not for Micky Webb like we've had the last few years. I don't trust Meier.
