He who laughs last laughs the loudest. I ambusting a gut!
You can laugh all you want. But I will wait until the final chapter of McDermott's political career is written. When that happens we'll see who is laughing. My bet is it won't be you.
Yes, McDermott won with a whoping 11,000 or so votes. Incredulious! As to his future political career?
Hammond is financially in trouble. Gaming revenue on the decline. Property values and their resulting assesments have taken a substantial hit, 2o% to 30% less (estimate didn't do the math). Code enforcement lost the increased out of town rental fee's.
Hammond, or shall we say Tom has put a large track of land into TIF's that do not generate $$ for the larger city. The Charter School, well the recent D grade speaks for it self and it has taken $$$ away, to the tune of $2.5m away from the School City nd cost $33,000,000.
Blocking of streets with concerete barriers to fight crime... well it doesn't look good, doesn't sound good and the next quesiton, will there be a growing use of concerete barriers to fight crime? It says crime is a problem and there is no solution. Someone is going to ask Why isn't the other side of Calumet Aveune have concrete barriers?
And X, you certainly worked very hard at supporting Jr., If you are the City Council man, your going to need all the good luck in the world as you will have even a harder time with the city budget as the city has substantial $$$ shortfalls next year. You may not have enough $$ for your pensions payments.
If your not the city councilman, still good luck to you ask your really going to need it living in this city.
