  • That's absurd. Just because they work for the city, elected or not, doesn't mean they are 100% trustworthy.

  • surprisedOMG!  I can hardly wait to see the turn out on June 13th!  That was so arrogant and ignorant.  I like the guy that stood up and said he has insurance to pay for things like a broken down door.  I have a feeling they might be wanting to change their minds come Monday night.
