Maybe if Jerry Nelson wasn't being so 2 faced about his politics he would get more support. Raising a vote to remove detainees from the resolution last week and saying he didn't want gitmo detainees sounded good. Then he did an interview saying that the resolution was an open invitation for gitmo. I was shocked to see that after what was said at the meeting. The mayor pro tem should pick a side and stand on it instead of being so 2 faced with his politics.

What kind of people stand behind someone that SAYS SOME SHOULD BE SHOT when they are speaking in a church.

Is this the kind of radical you want running this city. Why isnt anyone talking about the real issues that are effecting the city now like what we are going to do when the prison closes in the next couple days.

Everyone is wasting there energy on something that isnt even in our control. These people going on the news everyday, Saying people should be shot, pickitng all over the city are mking the City of Stadish look like a bunch of rednecks way to GO!!!!!!!
