  1. The only solution is to keep voting back into office the same lying democrats that are only here for the bloated salaries and generous benefits. Keep the city council members as full time employees, even though they are only part timers.Full pay ,year round, benefits…PENSION. Only in America!

  2. The city government is plagued with corruption, over bloated salaried executive staff, failing schools, and the police force which is now 500 officers below minimum staffing. This sort of environment is what leads to complete failure for a city government. Until the residents finally wise up and stop voting in the same useless loads, we are going to continue to see a major decline in population and tax base. This is purely a self inflicted wound which they continue to pour salt in to.
