  • I wonder if they will address the bum issue in the city…I had to ask one to leave the front porch of
    My property by UF yesterday….he said he “thought
    It was ok”…I photographed him and he left…i’m
    Real tired of picking up the trash they leave behind…
    Will their virtual state of the city show the panhandlers in intersections??? Will they show
    Ray Washington getting arrested for not wearing a mask
    At a city meeting to keep us all in line?

  • F U B A R…that is the state of the city. That’s what comes from inept, fiscally irresponsible, draconian leadership.
