    Wil-Care Transportation. I want to figure out how I can get a micro loan. It’s very hard running the business when you’re small business owner. Thank You. God Bless

    Hi Ben,

    Congrats on the win! Syracuse born and raised (minus Rochester for school). I am writing to you because of how confusing the street signs are for parking here in Syracuse. It seems to have gotten to the point where people need a website such as ( to tell which side of the street to park on.

    In just my network of friends/colleagues in Syracuse/Tipp hill I can tell you that those who receive tickets; the vast majority are just because of the confusion, not due to negligence. I cannot imagine being a student from a country abroad to try to understand them.

    A thought I had after talking with people was that maybe the city could reduce or nullify fines for parking on the wrong side of the road in lieu of community service of cleaning up the city. From working in the city after the snow melts it honestly is sad to see all of the trash from the winter. The trash may not deter people from visiting Syracuse, but I do think it leaves a lasting negative impression on those who see it.

    While you are putting the new administration together, can we get a new airport director. As someone who uses Hancock almost weekly for work, it is a mess (and I don’t mean the construction). I tried to address my concerns with the current director and got back a demeaning and rude letter. She has no history to have the job and hasn’t learned anything in her time holding it. Please get us someone that knows what they are doing.

    You must see CNY 5 NEWS 12/19.

    Interview from Katko said Syracuse has gone down toilet. I don’t live in the city, but I was born and raised for over 50yrs. in Syracuse. He should be put in his place for talking about our city.

    You need 10 more snow plows, mate. In the alternative, consider what was done back in the late 80’s. Contract out private plowers to take care of the cross roads. We should not have to wait 15 hours to get Westmoreland Plowed. Get it together.

    Very bad idea to put Bob Dougherty in charge of neighborhoods! ask any of his district residents when he was on the common council! he talks big and does NOTHING but talk. he is also known to protect delinquent landlords including the one who just helped her tenants totally gut her house on Hillview Ave before land bank took it and she threw the demo of this house back on city taxpayers along with the over $36,000 in back taxes she owed. numerous neighbours complained to Dougherty but nothing every happened. this included closing code violations posted on the website 2 hours after being posted yet no one from codes ever visited and no change occurred!

    I am very much interested in several of your open positions. However, when trying to upload cover letter, it was not available to do so. I was able to upload my resume. Should you or your staff have any suggestions of ways I could upload a cover letter, I look forward in receiving.

    I thank you in advance for your prompt response. Should you have any questions, please contact me…Flowers

    I am interested in submitting my resume and a letter of interest for employment, per your website’s directions. However, the form does not provide any means to upload the requested letter of interest, it only provides a tool to upload a resume. Is there a preferred method of submission for the letter?

    I would like some political advice. I would like to know how to go about get the definition of incontinence changed from “lack of voluntary control over urination or defecation” to “lack of voluntary control over bodily waste.” As far as I am aware women have no control over menstrual bleeding therefore with the change in definition the IRS would have to make feminine products FSA HSA eligible.

    Dear Mayor Ben Walsh, 

    The team at Pragmatic and Fresh Business Solutions has developed a sustainable initiative to promote independently owned restaurants and small to medium-sized organic farms and it’s called “Chef Challenge Syracuse” and the mission is to build a better food system in CNY and to put Syracuse on the map as a foodie destination. We want people to know that the chefs of Syracuse and CNY are ready to offer innovative and healthy local food – is Syracuse ready? Maybe, we sold out of tickets for our upcoming event with Grover’s Table this Monday (Nov 20th) 5-8pm but we have more work to do!

    It’s a “Chopped” style event in which the restaurant receives a mystery box of organic produce and meat from a local farm (Grindstone Farm in this case) and have 30 minutes to plan and an hour until they have to serve the first of four courses. We have forged connections with influential bloggers and restauranteurs and expect to reach 55,000+ people with our social media coverage following Monday’s event.

    Why do we need your help? To get people from Buffalo, Rochester, NYC, Toronto, Ithaca, Albany, Boston, etc to travel to Syracuse and CNY to eat the best food possible, we need to expand our reach. We need a budget to compensate very influential food bloggers and public figures that attend our events. We can treat them to a one of a kind dining experience already but to get them to travel 4-8 hours and promote it for us, we at the very least need to pay for their gas. May you help? We can do a lot with a little.

    Meanwhile, I have to get back to work and continue bootstrapping this – Josh Rhoades | Pragmatic and Fresh Business Solutions | Chef Challenge Syracuse | 315-641-9393 |

    Dear Ben,

    Congratulations on your big win! I have a suggestion for a simple step the City can take that will have a dramatic positive effect on eliminating childhood lead poisoning that will COST THE CITY NOTHING. Under federal law (40CFR 745), any project conducted in pre-1978 housing or child occupied facility where paint will be disturbed requires the firm conducting the work be EPA Certified and use at least one EPA Certified Renovator. Documentation of this certification is inexplicably absent in the current Code but is aimed directly at eliminating childhood lead poisoning. If, in the permitting process, Code Enforcement required a copy of each applicant’s EPA Lead Safe Firm and Renovator Certificate prior to issuing a building permit it would be huge proactive stem in eliminating childhood lead poisoning.

    If you would like more information I’d be pleased to assist you.

    Best Regards,

    I hope you will hire a new police chief who demands a high level of police accountability to the communities that the police serve, as well as increased transparency.
