it obvious that the present administration is running without a firm hand on the tiller, how else could one explain a unanimous vote to lower the property tax assessment for the Observer's property to the tune of $150,700 and at the same time raising residential property assessments

Who wants to take on that mess. They voted down a water park and now Silver Creek is going to have one. I think this development will surprise everyone and expand and be a good thing for SC.

The lack of candidates is a sign that city residents have given up. Many people feel that there is no hope for the city and it's government is simply a useless expense that bears no fruit. With the exception of Ms. Kiyak, current office holders don't have clue as to what ails the city. Music on the pier will not yield the jobs that are so desperately needed to revive the local economy. Poor investments like the Bertges, Steffan and Main Street peoperties are a reflection of the quality of our leadership. With all the plant closings and population losses that we have experienced it appears that our leaders still don't understand that you can't tax business and homeowners to death and expect them to want to stay here. Dunkirk will eventually recover because of it's natural harbor and great location in the heart of the heavily populated northeast but that recovery won't happen in our lifetime and it certainly won't be the result of good government.

we have this ever reoccurring nightmare about who has their hand on the tiller of the over sized boat with a small rudder, we also wonder what would have been the reply's if all or any would have been defeated by a write in vote

It's sad to see the one who is the least involved, and is in it almost solely for his own personal and professional interests, gloating in this article as if this means he's doing a good job. Please! We've got 2 years to find some better options.
