this goof is Joe Fusco's brother in law. Sam's wife is Jackie FUSCO D'urso. Maryann pulls Fusco's strings the same way Fusco will be pulling the strings with Sam if he wins the 4th ward. I encourage all Republicans in the 4th ward to cross party lines and support Ramona Smith. If D'urso wins, thats another piece of city government Fusco can control. Fusco is not up for re-election until 2015 but we can send a message and not elect his brother in law, when D'urso loses Fusco will be in fear seeing a preview of his defeat in 2015.

Anybody remotely connected to Fusco might as well just bury his head. People are tired of him and his lies and incompetence. So Sam, save your money and your pride and stay home.

Ahaa Hello. First off he has to get people to sign his petitions. Oh sorry they will sign all the dead people, and people who have no clue their names are being put on the petitions. They will do that at some ones kitchen table. Then they will have someone witness them. Oh sorry that would be the same person at the table signing someone's name. Then he has to get elected. Oh wait he is Fusco's brother in law. That means they will load up the bus with people he will pay to vote. Gee sounds much like the Kent St. Raiders will be busy doing it all over again this election too.

don't need anyone doing anything, anytime government does anything it makes things worse! government doing nothing is better than doing something messing it up more. Novel idea, have a animal for mayor like a lot of other cities are doing across this great country of ours. dogs, cats, jackass' for mayor's all over u.s.a.. Not bulling around its true

Romona Smith has worked tirelessly for the 4th Ward and its residents for many years. She has even tried to keep the public pool open even with Fusco's efforts to shutter it. Now, Fusco is trying to silence one of the voices there trying to keep him honest by replacing her with someone I bet doesn't even know the streets in the ward, or the City. Stop Fusco. He joked his way into Mayor. Don't let him install the village idiots to follow Joe the clown. Soon he will want everyone to call him Boss Fusco in his storybook version of Tammany Hall.

He needs to lose. This city doesn't need a "yes man" for Fiasco on the council.

Have any of you even met the guy? He's a veteran who has lived lots of different places and now wants to serve our city. I don't get along with my brother-in-laws all the time, so why would he? Don't throw this guy to the curb just because he's related to Mayor fiasco. Durso seems like a good guy and no way seems like a yes man. at least i didn't get that impression from him.

Thats one of the biggest problems this area has. Too many political connections. The last thing this city needs is having this goof mayor with at least 1 sure vote on the common council. If he is elected we'll see how many of Fiasco's bills or funding passes.

He will be a yes man.Fusco is afraid of who's on there now. He can't get his way with her.

Ramona is past her prime. Very ineffective. Always looking for controversy.

Ramona managed to get the pool open, against the "mayors" wishes, AND raise over 5000 dollars of private donations to keep it open, To me that is very effective. I believe the other word your looking for is accountability or accuracy NOT controversy. As far as your first statement, see above.

The guy is running for a seat in the 4th ward but nobody in almost all the 4th ward has met, or talked to him. He has lived here less than a year and can't begin to understand the city or it's workings yet he talks about blight.. I don't know what city you live in but Mayor Brown began the huge turn around for this city and the 4th ward has been going strong under Smith.. Don't you think it is funny that one of the only opposing voices Fusco has is the target of a 'family' initiated campaign. I was born in Rome, served my country and worked for the Department of Justice. My kids have gone to school here since I returned to Rome in 2004. I have owned a home here since 2009. I know the streets. I do not consider myself qualified to run against Ramona, and I feel he is much less qualified than 75 percent of the hard working people in this city. Want to vote for him it's your right. What does Joe say, Home to Rome! You don't get anymore Rome than Mrs. Smith.
