Rennerwitz and Burtejka

By:  Diane Benjamin I attended the Black-Sage-Schmidt Townhall meeting last night at the BCPA.  At most 30 citizens attended and many staff members.  The aldermen didn’t waste a lot of time going over what people already knew.  Most of the time was questions and answers, mostly about budget issues. One citizen asked why a NO […]

Government for votes

Tari’s Town Hall

By:  Diane Benjamin I almost feel sorry for Tari.  Citizens who disagree with actions of the City and Tari were pretty furious last night.  I’m sure by the end Tari was ready for it to be over.  I expect his next event to be stacked with a lot more supporters. Schedule:   12/12 – 5:30 – […]

Tari’s scream for love

By:  Diane Benjamin I’m sure you’ve heard Tari has 3 Town Hall meetings scheduled for December.  The only questions now are: How many police will be at each event to protect him? How many of “his” people will attend to applaud his every word? Will anybody be able to have opinions other than his? Will […]

Finally back, now the news

By:  Diane Benjamin The Pantagraph has been anxiously awaiting what I am going to write about Kevin Lower’s Town Hall last night.  If you read their report and attended, it’s easy to see what I spoke about toward the end of the meeting.  The bird-cage liner is either intentionally deceiving citizens for their own personal […]
