Mayor: It's somebody else's fault

The Blade waits until the very last paragraph of this lengthy story to give readers the most jarring remark by Mayor Collins, that directors (he used the plural) of public utilities are "political hacks." He doesn't name names and the editors apparently didn't press him to do so, but it's obvious that Ed Moore, a good and decent man, is being set up as a scapegoat. My guess is that the mayor and the editors are colluding, doing a little set-up work to justify future attacks on selected employees in the water division.

Wow! Obama as well as the Mayor, Gerken, and the School Board still really don't get it...

Obama still doesn't get it, a Republican 60 seat swing including his previously owned Dem seat in Chicago ,and he gets on TV and says the results of Tuesday election were because we (Obama ) didn’t do enough fast enough. This guy is really out of touch.

Is plowing the mayor's street a tradition that is justified?

13abc has this story on the City plowing clean a mayor's street. Bell is the current mayor, but the story covers previous mayors. If I was Bell I would put a stop to this asap. It sounds snotty.

But no other government employees received preferential treatment.

Want your side street plowed first? Move next to the mayor! 13abc's Greg Bilazarian checked in how Mayor Mike Bell's Old Orchard street looked.

Like Central Avenue, the mayor's street was cleaned down to the pavement and the city admits that it's no accident. When the snow falls, the plows head for Hopewell.

Bell should go after Carty for the $450,000 he cost the city

If Toledo is in such dire straights why don't Mayor Bell go after Carty for the the money
he cost the city to settle the lawsuits? Bell is putting everything else on the table including
raising taxes. Carty had a lot to do with creating this budget mess in the first place.

Also, there is still some fat that can be cut, namely Board of community relations. This is just a racist department that no longer belongs in this city or in our society.
