Thinking citizens have been complaining and telling officials for years. But it's always been "who you know, and who you bl-w". The city manager keeps farting around with Code Enforcement, and won't let them do their jobs properly. Get rid of Daley, and come down hard on land-lords, and clean up this town.

Dailey is gone and the City still looks like sh*t.

There are land lords that own up to hundreds of properties and keep them looking nice. Then there are slum lords that do nothing and don't care. A bad tenant can ruin in three months what it takes a good owner weeks to fix.

A lot of the problem is the laws that protect the bad tenants and throw road blocks up in front of the owners. Our laws are out of hand. They protect the criminal and not the person hurt!
