This is getting so absurd here. The mayor delays opening by one week. Like we are all of a sudden going to get a cure for the virus while waiting. These delays do nothing but put the mayor in the newspaper and another nail in the coffins of the small businesses here that he is obviously out to destroy.
They are taking an incredibly large hit as it is trying to hold on to their business. They are not getting a weekly paycheck like the mayor. He has lost sight of leadership on this city. Just aimlessly getting involved in other things that make no sense to the recovery of this city and country.
Let’s focus on getting this city up and running first. But also at the same time have a backup plan to reverse things should that be needed. Certainly a multiple partner relationship did not have to be a top priority right now. And having the BLM terrorist group demanding defunding the police department does not mean we have to stop what we are doing and negotiate with terrorists. Covid needs to be a number one priority at this time. Obviously it is not or we would not be lagging behind all the other cities in the state, The taxpayers of this city would like to see someone working for us for a change.
We need someone in this city to help lead this city. The direction the mayor is in is leading us away from this. The small businesses pay the most taxes and also give back to the city. Why cripple them? In the 70 plus years I have been here I have never seen someone so determined to put people out of business instead of helping them. You do not give them the credit they deserve. They will go above and beyond to survive here. Yet you treat them like toddlers. Start being a mayor of this city. Start working for the taxpayers of this city.
Start working on the covid crisis in this city. Start being a real leader of this city. Have someone set your GPS to go in the RIGHT direction. If not it clearly shows what most of us already know. You just don’t care. And what’s with all the orange tickets on cars?
People have no work and no place to go so we hit them below the belt?
