Fusco is neither of those things, and I can tell you that I've seen this first hand. I'm sorry you were deceived.

Let me state this a bit more strongly- "honest" and "good" are the last two adjectives I'd ever use to describe Fusco.

God you people are ignorant. How much more plainly can I say it? Fusco is NOT my boy. BROWN was simply the larger of the two evils. The fact that you could ignore what is plainly in front of your face and stated in no uncertain terms tells me all I need to know of you.

This city is well rid of Jim Brown. In 3 plus years it may also bring well rid of Fusco, but you won't hear me whining about him after he's gone either.

You need to be on meds if you think Fusco is the lesser of two evils. That tells me all I need to know about you, frankly. You're actually the ones who keep bringing up Brown as a way to deflect criticisms of your boy Fusco. Believe me, I know he IS your boy toy- I'm not buying your routine. Which would you rather be, liar or idiot? I'll let you decide.

So far Fusco hasn't gotten drunk at a public function and shoved a woman, or gotten drunk and screamed at a room full of people, or allowed his relatives to offend everyone they meet and buy public property for a dollar...and really, should someone bring up a certain department of RPD, Kim Rogers and Mr. Benedict? You clearly know nothing, and you are thick as h*'ll.

He hasn't needed a drink to scream foul language at women in the workplace, to single out other women and treat them unfairly to the point that district union officials have to warn him, or to tell other female employees not to "let the door hit them in the ass." This was in the workplace.He has rehired and then had to fire employees previously dismissed for poor performance. He has abused his power and treated dedicated empoyees unfairly as retribution for family ties. He has rewarded other poor employees with positions they don't deserve and will not perform properly. Yeah Mayor Fisco is quite a guy!

What is a "department of RPD"? Kim Rogers got let go for messing with things she wasn't supposed to be messing and Benedict got caught with his pants down- so again, what's your point? YOU clearly have your head firmly planted up your own ass at best, or Fusco's at worst. You're obviously a know-nothing slob.

How does one "allow" one's relatives to offend or not offend people, by the way? Yeah, your boyfriend just does his getting drunk and shoving women at home... where he spends most of his time... because word is he spends most of his time at the cemetery, not being a mayor.

Give that one a rest. Fusco was asking for it, and the rest of the story was bullshit. As for Fusco not doing anything like that I will tell you from personal experience that is an out right lie. Fusco pushed and threatened an old man at Gannon's fundraisers at the Beaches. I was there that night, and it happened again at another function, and if you or that laying sack shit Gannon says otherwise then I will tell you they are full of shit. Even Roanne was there and knows what happened. He called the former councilor of the 3 ward names at the Beaches fundraiser and an old man got into it with Fusco about what he was saying. The guy was 80 something and good friends with Fusco, but Fusco stepped over the line on that one, and the old man went after him. Fusco pushed the old man back into a chair now I saw, and so did a lot of other people. Then Fusco mouthed off to some other people someplace else and talked shit about the councilor. What he did not know was there were people who knew her, and were friends of hers. They told her husband about it and her husband confronted Fusco on it in the hallway of Staley school during a debate. I was there for that one also, and was in the auditorium doorway when he confronted Fusco. Her husband is a hell of a nice guy, but Fusco could not get away him fast enough. Her husband is very protective of her, and told him where the Bear shit in the Woods. He is the last person you want to tangle with when it comes to his wife. Now if you don't believe that then you ask her husband if he is still around. I have not seen her or him in a couple of years. The last I heard her or she was ill and dropped out of politics. If you ask Fusco or Gannon about it more than likely they will lie about it or deny it happened. So canít say Fusco has not done the same thing you claim Brown has done. Fusco is a piece of shit and will lie to your face. You cannot trust anything he says or does.

I''ll take " something anyone with a brain would know" for 1000 Alex! There are departments at RPD just like at City Hall. Benedict and Rogers weren't the only ones caught with their pants down either, my dear. Stop to think about that for one moment.

While its pretty clear that he was elected based on this line of thinking I'm afraid we will all pay dearly for it. Politics turns it into a popularity contest that because of a slyly crafted persona Fusco won. He is not any nicer or more ethical than those against Brown thought he was. People would have been better off seeking an intelligent qualified candidate to run against them both if they felt Brown was not the best choice. The public is the last to really know what is happening and by the time you all realize what he is up to it will be too late!

He can't give you raises. He says there is no money for them. You have to know that the lousy slimeball simply lied to get you all to vote for him. Real moral fiber there, huh folks? How are all his lies working for you now?? You fools believed him and now the whole city has to pay the price.

He's going to give pay raises out. He has no choice because he promised every one of us cash in our pocket. That's the only reason we dumped Jim brown.
It's bad that Miller, Shoemaker and Conover left. They were the only department heads that could walk and chew gum at the same time

Maybe it IS a good thing he is never there, likesomeone else said earlier. If he's not there he can't screw things up as bad as if he was there. But I noticed when he is there he still
Parks right up by the door instead of letting the taxpayers park there! Lazy ASS!!!!!
