Comments from the Public

Here is how you the public responded to Jay Burke’s complaint.  Of course I don’t consider anonymous comments.  BTW, guess why we can now see city videos online?

Hi, I just want to thank you for asking the tough questions of the Rochester Area Builders paid consultant. The Rochester Area Builders have always had a long leash and its time to reel them in a little. Again thanks and keep up the great work.  – Mike

I’ve been entertained by your ongoing conversations as a City Council Member. While I don’t agree with your position on everything, I do appreciate your energy and tell-it-how-it-is style.  …… You know that I’m a fan of the tree ordinance (even more so for older neighborhoods, since more residents and visitors drive nearby and through these areas). So let’s take hold of the problem and ownership of the solution. Trees for everyone, one neighborhood at a time.  …….    I’ve been entertained by your ongoing conversations as a City Council Member. While I don’t agree with your position on everything, I do appreciate your energy and tell-it-how-it-is style.  -Adam (massively abridged, one of the longest notes I ever received)

Just wanted to let you know I watched the video of Monday’s meeting and am again very proud of the way you stand up for us citizens. I feel you always show how prepared you are on each subject and you aren’t afraid to speak up on our behalf! Bravo!!  -Joan

I read about your discussion with the builders representative. From what I read in the paper, which is limited, I agree with your thoughts. Thank you. -Mike

Thank you for your dedication and effort to improve our city. You have consistently demonstrated admirable insight and the willingness to speak up for continuous improvement. – Scott

And the funniest note I got:

OMG, I just watched the video, they want an apology for that?  Time to put on the big boy pants.  -Amber
