The real question is, will the third most famous groundhog in Pa.(Mayor Joe) see his shadow next Saturday February 2nd.? Forget Punxsutawney Phil and Gus, all eyes are on Erie this year to see if Mayor Joe actually comes out of his hole.

He's still p.o.'d that the ETN couldn't pick the mayor after Filippi (their choice) fell from grace. Lou Tullio worked in a completely different political and financial reality. There was plenty of federal and state money to bring here. Today, not so much.

Bring back Joyce Savocchio! Times were tight when she was mayor also but she was aggressive and not afraid to do what was right.
Joe is a nice and sincere guy but not a leader, as Pat Howard points out he would make a great behind the scenes manager, he sheds the lime light and does not want any controversy, that's great but not for a mayor.
Word is that Greg Karly is the real mayor now, Joe can't do anything until Greg gives his ok. Filippi would have moved the city forward but he surrounded himself with too many nut jobs.
Bring back Joyce!

How about the time Whitey Cleaver told the news media that "they" wanted Joe Sinnott to run for congress, Joe believed it and played along, supposedly a poll was conducted and Joe was very far behind Mike Kelly and even "none of the above". It is almost sad, he is a nice guy but he has no leadership or people skills.

From the same paper that demanded more of the same from a second term for Obama and still refuses to criticize him despite his many failures.

Pat Howard is a loser. He sits on his high throne criticizing everyone else while he knows that no one can rebut him. Any letters to the editor get "cropped" to reflect the papers opinion. Must be nice acting untouchable when you constantly pick on those who you know won't be allowed to fight back. Hey Pat, go ride your bike off of Dobbins Landing you douchebag.
You are a washed up reporter who is irrelevant.

The newspaper has protected sinnott by not covering his drinking exploits, his crony hires, or his lack of accomplishments. They never question his asinine decisions whether it's firing dispatchers, spending money on bumpouts, or the wildly unnecessary money wasted on perry square.

The paper always disliked Filippi and Howard and the Cuneos still can't get over Filippi's acquittal.

Sinnot has gotten a free ride. Why? Because PNC and the Chamber like Sinnott. He's their useful idiot.

It's high time people in Erie got a chance to vote without holding their noses.

PNC and the Chamber have no control over him. Rodger is the puppeteer.

I agree, but Marlene Mosco and Jim Dible run in the same circles as RR.

Who cares whether Sinnott runs for mayor again or not ? Who cares who becomes mayor of Erie and how long they stay in office ? Really now, do any of you knuckleheads out there actually believe it will make one shread of difference to the folks of this town who sits in the big chair at City Hall ?

This search for the right person to lead Erie to better days has gone on for decades and isn't about to stop. The city can't be fixed anymore. Instead it's up to it's citizens to adjust to further decline and decay. And you all do that very well.

Erie is like a terminally ill cancer patient. There is no longer a cure and it's time to just keep that individual comfortable as nature takes it's inevitable course. Erie grows older, poorer, and dumber by the day. These are factors that no one individual or town can overcome.

Those of us who have been here all of our lives know exactly what I'm talking about. There are certain places in America, particular areas of the country that are doing well and continue moving upwards. There are also those areas of the country that have slid into such an abyssmal state that they will never recover their glory days. The Great Lakes Region is notoriously in that sector of America.

Take an honest look at cities along Lake Erie for instance. Let's move east to west and you judge for yourself the health and viability of each.
Buffalo ? Dunkirk ? Erie ? Ashtabula ? Cleveland ? Toledo ? Detroit ?
Notice a patteren here ? Hmmmmm, and with all that fresh water in abundance on their doorsteps too. What happened ? I thought this gold mine known as Lake Erie was going to bring prosperity to Erie and all the rest. If only Mario Bagnoni could come back and run for mayor. He'd know what to do !

Well said. And all the towns you mentioned have been under total democrat control for virtually their existence.
