Somebody Please Argue With Nuesse!

Will somebody please argue with Nuesse's viewpoint?

I happen to agree with her, so that pretty much takes the fun out of this...

PSA from Firelands411:

They say common sense ain't so common anymore.  The teen blogger Michelle Pletcher may be right:  Technology is making us dumber.

I'm starting to think maybe these people really do care about Sandusky:

This group is sometimes affectionately referred to as "the haters" but typical haters don't go through this much trouble to prove that their ideas work and should be instituted just because they disagree with the establishment.

Let's get real about something here:  waterfront protection is absolutely necessary if you want to enable the city to grow in a way that will benefit the citizens instead of special interest groups.  The special interests always want to privatize so they can basically hog the natural resources.  Don't let it happen.

Oliver Hardy in the SR forums:

That's good to hear Oliver!

BTW:  This blog isn't much competition to a sweet wife, three lovely kids, and a full time job!  This is just play time, and I don't get much of it anymore.  It's not a conspiracy though - it's called "life."  And with that, I'll sign off until we get some more play time...

Nuesse could start by explaining in detail how she would split up the budget and what cuts she would make.  It is easy to get elected by pointing out what the guy before you did wrong, right Obama?  (he nodded his head) The problem is doing something once you get elected.  (now Obama is ignoring me...oh well)  It is hard to argue with someone that releases sunshine statements, with not specifics attached.

Enough with the Jibba Jabba, like her answer to "Chris" on her website.  Explain how you expect to steamline the government.  How will you improve the "livability" of this city and attrack people, like me, back?

I was afraid that the Obama campaign would have this effect on politics, just offer hope and change with no specifics or real plan.  The weak minded and those that let others think for them will then vote for you in droves and follow you over the cliff, without asking any real questions.

Oh and could the campaign please buy the camera guy a tripod.  Either he is nervous or he has parkinsons.

I can't argue with Nuesse either.  Seems the city's only plan is to threaten people into voting for more money to give to the government to waste.  One commissioner always stated over and over, what is the plan? The city should have taken action long ago even before they passed an unbalanced budget.  No commissioner should be allowing the budget to be passed unbalanced. What makes people think that their services will be reinstated or their streets will get paved when the tax passes?  And, Cedar Point is a real gem in sacrificing a quarter percent over possibly 3 percent that the city could implement on them; they are getting off real cheap and they know it.  The city has been living beyond their means and now we are in a hole that we cannot get out of.   I only hope the people vote for change and common sense in November.

Jimmy, I completely agree with you.  In your estimation, what parts of the city's livability do you think need improvement?  Because I think the city's function is to take care of roads and sidewalks - and that wasn't being done until recently.  (We started complaining, posting specific street intersections and videos of the worst roads - and lo and behold they are now repaved!)

What has been repaved.  I am on Hayes ave (rte 4) most often and it reminds me of a WW2 German runway after teh allies bombed it.  Before you get to the city limits it is as smooth as silk.  Campbell is not much better.  When I talk to people that are still in the city they complain about the lack of policing if not complete apathy from the police department.  They also say that it was not any better when Nuesse was downtown. 

The small business owners that I know (a few downtown and a few scattered around town) say that the city is the biggest obstacle to them running a business.  This rings especialy true for those downtown, they have nothing but complaints and mostly say they are just trying to build up a clientel so they can move to the Township or at least out of downtown.

I recently moved out of the city limits, for many reason other than the streets and sidewalks.  I would not consider that a livability issue, or at least even in the top 10.  Outside of the city there are barely any sidewalks and some of our roads are not even paved.  There are much bigger fixes that need to be addressed first.

Abandoned homes

A shoreline that is neglected

a city that does support its businesses

a school system that is failling

Not enough homeowners/lack of property upkeep

Apathetic police

the list goes on and on
