Did anyone notice that the “Me Too” City Council President Tom Didier will not have the two minutes for public comment at the next? We need to ask him why is he against hearing issues from the people who elected him ?

I wager that the answer would be, our council, our rules, and we don’t need those pesky residents who take their time after a long work day to show up and wait, wait, wait for their two minutes to speak to the almighty and powerful city councilmen. Isn’t that what the councilmen get paid for along with their retirement, health insurance and other perks? We as citizens councilmen have important stuff to do and residents’ issues take too much of their precious time.

After the entire 5th Tuesday meeting was given to the GFW’s vision of taxing the residents of Allen County and the Fort Wayne for their vision of improving the quality of life and the quality of place for downtown tax increasing Economic Development schemes, why can’t the everyday resident get two minutes of time to speak before the Me Too Almighty and Powerful Republican Councilmen If it’s not Downtown Economic Development then it’s not important to the Almighty and Powerful Me Too Fort Wayne City Council Republicans.

Never thought I would see a third-world Banana Republic dictatorship lead by a Republican Party member. Shameful action by the Me Too Republicans on the Fort Wayne City Council to limit public input and to quite the voice of the public discourse.

This is even shameful for the Me Too Republicans, just think that WE elected these Me Too men to Fort Wayne City Council thinking they were standing for one thing and we got something totally the opposite.

The Me Too Republicans are well on their way of becoming nothing more than puppets of business and their all important campaign contributors Or are they already?
