Has Berry EVER held a forum like this before he was up for re-elect? If he did, was there every any action to correct the problems reported by the neighborhood presidents? The answer to these question are both no.
Folks a man who has any morals, ethics and values would be championing the effort for a real dialog and inviting all of the public to attend including the two other mayoral candidates, Paul Heh and Pete Dinelli. This should not be a self-promotional forum but a “Town Hall” type meeting to address community concerns. Hiding and trying to keep the general public in the dark only hurts and insults the public. Berry has yet to attend one debate with the other mayoral candidates where there was an open forum with all the candidates.
The truth be known; Berry showed some promise when he was first elected. Now, Berry is just another cheap, dirty political who will say and/or do anything to get elected knowing he will never follow through. For starters, remember the first thing Berry was going to do was the elimination of the PSD position and rid the city of Schultz? What did Berry do; he kept the PSD position and appointed the nefarious Darren White who ended up resigning in disgrace. Next, Berry kept Schultz who is now leaving disgraced, with the police department in turmoil and under a serious DOJ investigation.
Rob Perry told the forum he has hired a firm out CALIFORNIA to conduct a search for a new chief of police. Why does this administration insist on giving money to other states and jobs to other states? Why not give jobs to people who are already part of the community? Why not give the contract to a local business?
The two words that best describe Berry are; Liar Liar…
