Uglest Building in Alexandria.
Now before any one condemns me, I am going to try to be objective. I think trying to use common sense is more the proper wording. I think the current mayor has been in office long enough to pretty much see what he is about. I give him high points for trying. He is well educated and objective. I have actually seen times when he has sort of spaced out. But I think that is sort of selective as to his main interest’s. He has come up with some sound ideas. Basically I really do think he has the city at heart. He seems to care. He is a lawyer and thinks like one though. That works against him a good bit of the time. Frankly I give him a good grade so far.
The secrecy in the Cleco case has hurt him. The public thinks to this day, no matter what, the city will give in to the power of Cleco as a large entity. So no matter what the outcome, it will always be a minus mark on this current administration and the one before. That makes it a no win situation.
I am sure he has his interest he is working for as any public official does. That’s just a fact of life. For the most part he has surrounded himself with hard working assistants. There are a few that have attention deficit syndrome, but that’s normal in any team.
I say support his efforts and give him encouragement. That’s a hell of a rough job he took on.
Now the city council is another story entirely..
I had mentioned the broadcasting of the city council meetings in an earlier post. On Chanel four of the Cable. We have a mix of good and bad there. Honestly, mostly bad. What I view is at best a three ring circus. Honestly several of them have difficulty with the English language.
I know that most of them hate each other and only agree for mutual benifit, nothing more.
Try as I may I have great difficulty finding any good points in 75% of them. And before you say anything or think anything else. I look at them as Representatives of the people, NOTHING MORE.
I know personally three of them. One not good enough to judge. The other two I do know well enough. One of them is a straight shooter and has the city’s interest at heart. The other is eager, but lacking in some quality’s. Basically he tends to listen but will not follow through.
The others I just judge by their actions, and those actions tend to be more self serving than anything else.
I don’t see things changing for the better. The majority will do anything they can to kamikaze the mayor and the people they represent. That’s a fact that can’t be ignored.They seem to like to dance in the spotlight.
As to the poor sportsman ship of some in acting like a cry baby when opposed, that is just another slap in their constituents face that should not be ignored.
If I’m wrong please let me know.
But I really don’t see anyone who gives a r-t’s a-s.
