I feel the city has gotten much worse in the last 8 years. We have lost major employers,section 8 housing has grown and destroyed once nice neighborhoods, crime has risen significantly,drugs have increased, population has decreased,and we are headed straight for act 47. This is not an attack on any one person, but 3 of our Mayorial candidates have had 8 years to do something to fix these problems and have not.

Worse for all of the reasons stated by the first poster and others. To make matter even worse, our long term debt is greater, our assets have been decreased and we have had 7 of 8 years in deficit spending as stated clearly in the Delta Report. God Bless whoever the next Mayor and Council are. They have been left a complete mess and will have the unenviable task of cleaning up the worst financial mess in city history. This was accomplished by all of those who are the "only ones qualified to keep the city afloat.".

There should be a "neither better or worse" choice....

Budget aside, I think the city has stagnated for the most part. At least it sure seems that way.

Worse. A change in leadership may help and certainly can't hurt.

It is the choice of words: blackmailer could be fashioned as black male...which is O.K. and a pretty standard reference albeit not the most politically correct. Could also refer to a political campaign mail correspondence (black mailer) if black stationery was used.

The term "spade" is another story....kind of like calling someone the term egg plant or the N-word. Something that ole White Lightning or Bella Toni might say in every other sentence (See the "Ted Danson from McK" Thread)...because that is how they roll...guess it would be legal in private but quite offensive in public....but if you look at the source you can understand (but not justify) their potty mouths.

Right on Slugster. You captured the issues, that the spin doctors hide very well from the public thanks to the big "D" machine and it driver.

All this was revealed in the Delta Report that the then Mayor Brewster suppressed because he knew every thing that was in it. And, all was not well as he liked to spin it. If he did not cash in about $6.0 million of City assests we would be Act 47 with some layoffs.
