All I hear these days when it comes to City Hall is Shari Green this, and Shari Green that.
Mayor Green unfortunately will probably end up being the "fall guy" for her handlers who have and had nothing to lose backing her campaign and her successful run at the mayor's chair.
They now in my opinion are licking up the gravy leaving that poor girl the lumps.
Luckily she has stuck to her guns. Whether she knew it or not it was time for someone to take the bull by the horns. I would have.
The rising taxes, shortcomings at City Hall, crumbling infrastructure etc. etc. are not, nor will they ever be, her fault.
Quite frankly, the blame lies squarely on the shoulders of us, the people who vote in municipal elections. We haven't had a mayor with her intestinal fortitude since the late Harold Moffat (God rest his soul). Every past mayor since him as kowtowed to administration at City Hall. Mayor Green doesn't and I doubt she's about to start.
Don't forget when you point your fingers three fingers are pointing back at yourself. Do the math, 75 per cent of your fingers point at complacency and not just complacent civil servants. Yapping dogs are complacent too, it's the pit bulls who get out there and "deal with it".
If you don't like Shari Green put your name forward and run for mayor or councilor if you think you could do better. I doubt I'll ever be mayor but I put my two cents in up front instead of getting all stressed out grumbling about what coulda, woulda, shoulda.
Rock on, Shari.
