Johnson also to receive d-bag mayor award for being a complete nitwit in how to run a city, along with how to waste money on a loser ferry.

Key phase...truth, "as you see it".......hence the reason you have been banned from Topix several times and now are forced to post under multiple screen name.

Funny because Mayor Johnson was the best leadership this city had certainly in my lifetime and probably in the last 50 years. He was far ahead of Duffy, Richards and hell, light years ahead of Warren.

The moderators must be very thin skinned. Two post missing on this topic, many more on others. No wonder the place is deserted.

They always bring up the boat.
But you know what, the boat was sold.
Drive down to the beach and take a look for yourself, and on the way home drive down Main street and look at the mess we are left with now.
Main Street looks like the day after.

Bill Johnson isn't much different than the political crooks in Detroit.
All he was concerned about was getting his.

Johnson said he loved the city, he lived in it and became mayor and lived in it after leaving the mayors job.

Duffy said he loved the city, but he had to move into the city to get the Police Chief Job and he moved out of the city right after leaving the mayors job.

Who's a big fat liar???

For the first time in my life I am embarrassed for two of our colored mayors.

Mayor Johnson was one the worst mayors Rochester ever had. The fast ferry debacle that is still costing taxpayers money. How he got charges dismissed against a family member for a burglary at B&L Wholesale. He was in charge of getting the city schools back on track and we have seen where that has gone, nowhere but down. And now he is one of Lovely Warrens backers, what a shocker.

Johnson and Gantt are pulling the lovely strings. She can't even have a bowel movement without their input.

Did you forget the part that it was Mayor Duffy who finally sold the ferry? How about the stupid contract Mayor Johnson gave the people in the terminal to have $1 a year leases for decades? How about the stupid contract he made with Toronto for Rochester to pay for their terminal too? Why do certain people want to rewrite history. We don't all have alzheimer's.
