    He'd be even greater if he was not associated with Ken Clark. Probably everyone would trust him all on his own. That association pulls him down in many peoples eyes who think that he's actually a very good man.

    I have known Tim for a long time. I helped his campaign for city council almost 10 years ago. What has impressed me about mayor Tim is his grasp of project and technical details required to make a city run smoothly. Certainly his experience on city council aided this talent. Also, once the details have been analyzed and finalized, Tim lets the staff implement the project. I’m expecting to be invited to the victory party, even though he didn’t draw an opponent this year :-)

    Mr. Taylor,

    You highlight just a few of the things that Mayor Paulissen and the NEW council has accomplished...forgot a big one though...how about the paying down of the debt incurred in the past? Raising the homeowners exemption?

    Also, knowing your left leaning tendencies, I have to ask. Do you think it is acceptable for an elected official to intimidate and threaten employees? What happened to the " No Bullying" stance that the left has been promoting. Is it ok for that elected official to intimidate and harass other elected officials? Is it ok for that elected official to physically assault another elected official at a meeting he was not invited to but showed up anyway? Is it ok for that elected official to threaten staff?

    The reason why top administration would not stay was because of the former council and mayors using their positions as political tools made it impossible for employed staff to do their jobs.

    Why not give a little credit to the new council and the Mayor who has created an atmosphere of professionalism and unity.... If you do, you can't really honestly believe that censuring O'Keefe was a bad thing. He deserved it. After all, 3 strikes, your out!

    Thank you Mayor Tim and the rest of the council.
