WHAT I SEE IS A FRAGILE CITY ON THE BRINK OF DISASTER.
A witness to failure after failure, tax increase after tax increase without transparency and a city governed by corruptible mindsets. The leaders will blame others (using race, religion, sexual orientation or any excuse such as “it wasn’t on my watch”) for their failures; a common practice employed for cover-ups. I see a city government, led by the weakest links of a one party rule. I do not believe a fire department is the proper vehicle for the rehabilitation of criminals. In case of fire, in Mount Vernon, what is the proper procedure do we Call 911 before or after we secure our valuable assets?

Corrupt, inept and weak leadership, in all departments of a city will eventually lead to the demise of that city. The indications are the decline of property values; abandoned buildings and those of means will flee the scene, those who remain will become the vehicles for illicit gain. Welcome to Mount (Detroit) Vernon!
The DOMINO THEORY is to expose one department (like the snake cutoff the head) and the rest will follow.

NEWS ALERTS!
Will there ever come a lengthy time period when this city is not in upheaval, making the negative media headlines?

State government takes over school districts, in our case it needs to use all options for take over of the entire Mount Vernon city government.
I see this city government as green pastures ripe for the progressive thinking of younger minds. IT IS TIME FOR A CHANGE FOLKS!

Nothing will change for the better in Mount Vernon. The city is in its own little world, presided over by the most corrupt administration in its history. When election time rolls around, the people forget about the problems that have been caused by their previously elected officials, and they re-elect them.
