I doubt the city will ever be thriving in the near future due to machine politics’ costly baggage, and the creation and sustaining of unneeded jobs that force a bloated budget to preserve these political jobs.

Up to now and in my opinion, the City's name to fame is the incredible ability of a well known dictator to cover-up all of the despicable corruptions in the City, MACM, MHA, and MASD.

So far his formula has worked to perfection by controlling the media, providing job, and accusing any entity asking questions of high treason by being a “negativity merchant.“

Well spoken. Until you get rid of the actual terrorists, nothing will change.

At least the Port attained #1 in something. After all, do not forget this is the home of the "mayor of the year" and so is White Oak!

Ina Jean did actually win Mayor of the Year in Pa. Cherepko does a tremendous job with the idiots he has to work with on council.

If the politicians are not forced to be held accountable, how the hell does anyone expect the population to be? It's corrupt from the floor up, as they say.

Why are your giving the mayor a backhanded compliment? You commend him for doing a tremendous job and then you chastise his puppet idiot council members (i.e., Carr, McCall, Soles, and Delapenna.

These four puppets are the ones who voted for and executed his programs and policies that you interpret as a tremendous job. Why did you neglect to commend his four pupet councilpersons and 2X DUI solicitor?

Is there a far-flung possibility that the untouchable dictator knight had a sizeable chunk removed from his political armor barrier this week? Time may tell;
Yeah

Nothing new, same old longtime cover-ups in McKeesport. The Viking is another politically saturated business.

But the experience and success of the owner of the Viking and Lions Chair are now being extended to the IV, Marina, and Palisades management.

The Port is very fortunate to have a multitalented councilman. Now if that talent can be applied to satisfying his federal and other local tax liens, all should bode well.

Your comment is so timely.

Street rumor has it that the benevolent senator is providing references for the following.

Number 1 Son-in-law is applying for the position of head of Housing Authority Security

Number 2 Son-in-law is applying for the position of head of MACM to replace Mr. Rost who was placed on administrative leave for no justifiable reason. The reason was that JB controls the MACM board vote.

The senator's niece replaced a well known and popular city employee’s wife at a position for a local bargaining unit.

JB Nepotism is rampant as usual. Vote for JB again he will take care of his own.

No surprise there. Look at the Housing Auth,. Sewage or Water Auth., Streets , Skool Distrik , etc, etc., & so on & on & on. What I don't understand is how bright, young College educated teachers keep listening to their money-grubbing Teacher's Union on politics ???

They have Degrees , yet why do they never question why their jobs are in jeoprody while dozens of uneducated, politicians & union officer's family & friends continue to hold their jobs as some assistant to some assistant administrative job ?

Get rid of the nepotistic riff-raff in some made up , created 'administrative' position & keep those who are most beneficial & educated for our children. Wise up Teachers - we need you - not the flunkie's flunkies. Unions care nothing for us , except our dues & their politacal influence.

No courage behind the intellect of teaching. They like unions? Then use the clout to stand together to refuse non qualified hiring.

You been ranting pretending to be someone for a while now. Are you obsessed with this Glenn. Your not very stable by your post. No relative post to another over a public forum. Can you at least take your medicine McPherson?

How do you call houses tents? Your not very educated are you? Can you seek the mental help you need McPherson? You have a very childish, unhealthy obsession.
