  1. Why do we even need City Council and what “good” are they if they do nothing but argue and gripe at each other every day?? They are not needed as far as I’m concerned What have they done for their wards??? Will someone please tell me?? They are just getting paid to sit on their rears all day and argue about useless stuff! Let our Mayor make all the decisions for the city! That is his job! Why does he even need these useless people?? My City councilperson has done NOTHING in my east side hood to get rid of major blight and all the too many burned up and abandonned structures here which almost outnumber the occupied ones. This sucks! I hate seeing them with no progress being made on them! They just sit and get worse and uglier! I want to FIRE my City Council person!
