    1. Are you implying that Margaret Farmer and Stephen Passacantilli are not educated? Also pretty sure the word you attempted to spell was “councilors”.

  1. I think the most important thing any City Councillor can offer is the “TRUTH” and not be brainwashed by the
    Mayor or any other Politician. Our Trash, Rats, and Absentee Landlords are ongoing problems and nobody
    has conquered these problems yet. The fines are a joke & this is why the same violators are still trashing the
    neighborhood. The City accomadates the Restaurants & Tourists, what about the Residents? Went is it our

  2. We really need a fresh face and not a Walsh lackey. The city is filthy and there are more mentally ill and homeless on the streets than ever. The Mayor and cronies are worried about Olympics, car races, rewarding unions, protecting fiefdoms and other lofty ideas while things fall apart. It is so disheartening to know we are stuck with this for years to come. City councilors who will challenge him and not yes him are needed.!

  3. God Bless You pal50, no truer words were ever spoken. We are both on the same page. Transparency!!!!
