Think about this wrote:
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.
I am in complete agreement with you. My choice for Mayor has been narrowed between Spando and Tedesco!

Nothin's changed since May 12th. The Machine way is to destroy the city for working class people. All we want is Section 8 & welfare parasites so we can get that government money & get rid of you whining beyaaaches . Go jimmy & the Machine. CCD Baby.

They have become much better at becoming the worst!

Just look at the tax deliquent records of one of their (former) highest paid employees.

The 6 Better votes are coming for the SNIFFER and 5 of his aliases.

There are no business here that flourish, other than bars and Dollar Stores, the neighborhoods are war zones, the Section 8-ers don't take care of their homes (litter, high grass and weeds, no flowers planted, no snow shoveled etc.), their children roam the streets at all hours of the day and night, DownTown is a joke and unsafe to walk through! WORSE X's 1,000!

I hate to admit that I was once part of McKeesport's pre-eminent cartel of doom (the city's doom) known as The Machine. Once I found out that the leadership was all about itself and no one else,prone to a scorched earth policy, regardless of the consequences, I bailed and regretted my naive kool-aid drinking days. McKeesport has gone to shit and blame starts with the machine leadership.

==========
Your 100% right Deryl , but then the useless, incompetent politicians wouldn't have any State or Gov't. money coming in that allows them to continue to bull-sh!t the public into believing they have been doing something worthwhile.

Their cover would be blown, exposing them for the thieving, political rackateers that they are.

94 % say worse , it isn't a misprint. Unless we see a huge influx of more Welfare & Section 8 beggars , the next census will have this democratic ruined shit-hole at a population of likely around 16,000.'3rd class city status'? Hardly . Quad A school district ? Doubt it ?

Then who is bullshitting who ? The Democrat-Socialists have already allowed the welfare parasites to destroy & ruin half the homes in this so-called city . There is no more room for more.

Cancel the joke of 3 more school buldings. Get rid of the laughable City Govt.(MDC) & their ass-licking fools known as the School Board. And do what is right, right now. Restructure the local gov't. to be what it is - the Borough of McKeesport. Stop pretending.

Good post . Even for a Topix forum it's kinda hard to argue with a poll at 95%.

Much truth in the last few posts. I have just one question ,'If, according to the polls, 95% believe this City has gotten worse in 8 years'(under Brewster),'why would you want to put one his & the MDC's flunkies into the Mayor's office ?

The 'Peeper' is only there because they got him by the short-hairs. The MDC & their butt-lickin SB members ignored the 'SEX SCANDAL' simply to own jimmy's puppet - Mikey - completely .

Jimmy did nothing, do you really, honestly believe his mongrel, yes man stooge has a fu%k!n clue of what is going on ? Idiots - keep voting name recoginition & pull that 'D' lever.???? WHY ?
