To the editor:
Mayor John Sullivan is conducting a campaign that can be characterized as "honest," "sincere," "clear," and "concise."
Mayor Sullivan has promised he would not support new taxes and he was against a tax-and-spend philosophy. He has kept his promise and done his very best to convince six members of the council that they work for the people - and "the people" do not want either tax increases or assessments.
The "slippery six" of which Sullivan is not a part, have ignored the people. Pompously they have taken the position of "know-it-all" wise guys and they have set the Cape on a road to ruin. Is it any wonder why the citywide feeling is "we can't trust the administration or the slippery six?" They promised that the increase was necessary so that roads could be paved and the look of the city would improve.
Now, after the increase was approved - Mayor Sullivan and Councilman Leetz against the vote, and the majority for the increase - we find that there was miscalculation and paving will not be done in the near future.
You pick it - either the six lied to us or they're just incompetent.
Mayor Sullivan is a man of the people and for the people. No "dancing or disingenuous babbling, just answer the question!"
