Ball Less Mayor

I can respect all of the council decision and opinions on the ATV ban whatever they may be. At least the made their stances clear. What can't be respected, is a mayor who pussyfoots around it. He won't veto it but he won't sign it either. Grown ups have to make decisions Mikey. Stop trying to kiss both sides ass.

I applaud you. Again, another BO(obama) comparison - we don't need spineless , gutless politicians who tap-dance around issues , afraid to take a stance because they want votes. Grow some balls - speak your own mind & kick away the scrotum swingin cronies. Oh yeah - happy Valentines Day. Hugs & smooches. grin!

Honesty ? Transparency ? Respect ? OK fine . Can we start with the door watchers & whistling peepers from the infamous Cornell School Sex Scandal ? Then onto the International Village gate receipts money grab every year . Until this is cleared up - why trust anybody. This stuff should never be forgotten . Now they want to preach to us . Amusing.
Excellent summary of the Portís never ending problems. I agree with you on the IV and Cornell scandals that haunt the Portís reputation. They will live forever and the mayor adds to them.

Do not forget the disrespect of Mr. Pittman when Mikey fired him.

Do not forget the disrespect for Mr. Pittman's MIDA when Mikey and the 2X DUI solicitor evicted MIDA from City Hall.

Do not forget the disrespect of Mr. Rost of MACM when Mikey orchestrated his firing.

Do not forget the disrespect for the MACM person demotion Mikey orchestrated.

Do not forget the disrespect for the illegal slot machine law by Mikey by letting his friend and colleague have slot machines at the Viking after three raids.

Do not forget the disrespect for the ordinance by Mikey by letting his friends McCall, Carr, and Elash have delinquent property taxes.

Do not forget the disrespect for the personS that the fireman vulgarly demeaned on Face book and Mikey covers for him. Is this an actionable incident when a City employee verbally and publically attacks citizens? Where is the leaderless leader Mikey on this one? Will the lady lawyer study a legal remedy for this one Mikey.

Do not forget the disrespect for the CD Director by the esteemed 2X city solicitor.

It looks like Brewster-Filotie and Tedesco will win. Who picks up the third seat? All of these candidates in the race and this super voter hasn't got a door knock, flyer or mailer from anyone. Do any of them want the job? Why?

Nobody has been to my door either. With all of the signs littering our streets you would think someone would care enough to meet a few voters.

Walker will be the third seat because the MDC did not endorse her.

It is going to be the arrogant MBA leader Pat. He has the proper above everyone demeanor to fit right in with the rest of council.

Councilperson Walker Montgomery visited my door and I was impressed with her knowledge and how sincere she was. I can understand why the JB MDC machine fears an independent thinker like Fawn -- hence no endorsement by JB.

There was a sheet of paper taped to my door on Saturday (I thought the sewer rats were at it again for paid up bills), but it was Fawn's flyer.

Too bad I wasn't home when she dropped by. I wanted to ask her if she really knows how things work in town, now that she's been kicked to the curb.

I can only speculate what she might have said about "how things work in town."

The mayor and deputy mayor are bullies and intimidators. In other words, business are usual and "catch me if you can mentality." If you do not march to the machine tune, we will shun you and work around you with our four puppet votes.

I don't think Tedesco is a lock. Brewster and Cherepko seem to have formulated a decent strategy for taking him out. With three black candidates in the race, his votes in the lower wards will be reduced. Chiaverinni will hurt him in Christy Park as will Brewster-Filoeti. She hurts him in Haler Heights and Barry does too. This will also be an extremely low turn out election, and that favors the endorsed candidates.

The blacks should plunk for blacks only and send the machine a good head slap.

No candidate will get more than 1000 votes. Nobody cares anymore.

You make my earlier point about Tedesco being targeted. I thought so. They threw candidates into the race to hurt him and spread made up dirt on him on the down low. That unfortunately is city politics as usual. Let's see if that AJ/payday argument has any merit. How many relatives and friends has he got jobs at the city? School district? The Housing Authority? The Sewage Authority? Now tell me how many the Mayor and former Mayor have. Is it Tedesco or those two that receive quite a bit of campaign contributions from city vendors?

I didn't realize that Walker was targeted as well but now it is obvious that she has been too. She is the only candidate I have noticed out campaigning for herself. If nothing else, it shows that she has personal initiative. I respect that.

They will both get my vote next Tuesday. We need more independent leadership at city hall, not less.
