Re: “Maggie Brooks hired at RTS

Does anyone think that the Democrats are any better? Just look at Duffy, Morelle, Clifford and the mayor. They all play the same game.

Re: “Forcing Urbanski out won’t help city students

Despite the comings and goings of school superintendents and, occasionally, school board members, the only constant factor in the RCSD is Adam Urbanski.
We might as well face it, there is no way to fix the RCSD. It is broken beyond repair.
We should sack the whole lot of them.
While I am loathe to entrust the school system to Mayor Warren and her gang, I think that it's time to opt for mayoral control of the schools.
The mayor certainly couldn't do worse than they have.
Even she didn't entrust the education of her child to them.

Re: “Events for week of Oct. 26

Mr. Krieger, you were caught by a red light camera once, and made it into the media.
You are not one of Rochester's poor.
If anything, red light cameras target people with poor driving skills. Just like alternate street parking violations target people who are unwilling to read parking signs, or don't think that they apply to them.
I hope you are sincere enough in your statements that you will defend people charged with such violations free of charge.

Re: “Our 2015 City Council endorsements

Certainly, Molly Clifford knows a great many people in politics. Certainly she held several different positions in the last few city administrations, but that's only because she wasn't any good in any of them.
Indeed, in Clifford's case, it has never been what she knows but who she knows or is related to that has determined her prominence.
That has been her only success.
If she cared so much about the northwest district, why has she spent her whole adult life away from it?
Clifford is only seeking this office to run against Mayor Warren in two years. Ms. Warren spoiled Clifford's chances of succeeding Tom Richards if he won election in 2013. That was the plan, only it didn't happen. This is Clifford's way of striking back.
Good luck to Dorothy Paige.

Re: “Incumbents, endorsed candidates win Dem primaries

The absentee ballots and a recount could erode or reverse Clifford and Kaleh's victories in the northwest. Clifford only won by 42 votes, Kaleh by 27.

Re: “The photonics fight: it's about leadership, not buildings

Will someone please explain to me why it is so important to the political egomaniacs who dominate our area that photonics locate its headquarters in the Sibley Building. Isn't it enough that it will be in downtown Rochester? Why does the choice of the building matter?
Unless, as usual, there are hidden agendas both parties are pursuing but are too embarrassed to make public.

Re: “It’s politics as usual: Bill Reilich’s class act

You were expecting that maybe Reilich should send Garretson a sympathy card?
This is politics, not a tea dance. If the shoe were on the other cloven hoof, Garretson would be whooping it up over Reilich's demise as Republican chairman.
