Proud to stand with other mayors from around the nation in D.C.

Proud to stand with mayors from around the nation to demand that Washington start to put the needs of our citizens first. If we can afford to build roads, bridges, schools and sewers half way around the world, then we can afford to build them here in America, instead of allowing our infrastructure to crumble and our cities fail. Let’s stand up to the Tea Party and git er done!

How can we get this so-called pastor to crawl back under a rock?

Anyone have an idea on how we can get this so-called pastor to crawl back under the rock from whence he came? Can’t decide if we’re better off ignoring him or taking time to condemn him. Guys like this seem thrive on attention…positive or negative.

Pastor Terry Jones now says he plans to protest at City Hall, may file lawsuit
