well said. this new mayor would be well served by carefully choosing his alliances. so far, he has been weak. note to stocker - you actually do represent all of struthers, not just your friends. partiality is not appropriate at meetings where all must be equally respected. please consider the time others take to try to get to know you and hear your reports without interference. please advise your friendly audience that they make you look inadequate when they disrupt those meetings. we do not attend to hear litanies of the past. as the poster stated, your election "quote" was 'change is good'. this is your chance to make it so. do it, please. can you?
