  • The mayor was walking around town with a baby and 3 other friends Friday. Maybe exercising social distancing… or planning another terrible idea, like building in a flood zone. Oh well :*

    • Really. At a time like this your saying negative things. She’s an elected official and a pretty good one. Look at how she solved the parking meter issues.

      • The Catholic church threatened to sue the city over her parking meter ideas, so she had to drop it. She is a terrible mayor, and many of those who voted her deeply regret it given her actions in office. She sets a fine example for the people by attending parties during a pandemic. She needs to be recalled immediately.
