Sometimes I wonder what the point of these discussions on CD are at all. We aren't going to change anything here. I suppose just the exchange of ideas? To your point, why point anything out or even make suggestions that no one with power will consider?

Valid point. Although I try my best to avoid them, I usually allow myself to get sucked into these type of convos . My main reason for reading this blog is to learn about the history of our city which fascinates me, keep updated on the news of our city (I've learned a great deal form this forum) and get opinions on neighborhoods and real estate, etc...

I believe Democrats will win back the Senate after GA runoff, or in the next midterms, giving at least two years where Biden will have a Democratic Senate.
Oh well, its still not worth reading.

Who do we think will run for Mayor after Kenney?

City Council is a mess. Allan Domb would be my vote.
