    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.

    Congratulations on the well-deserved support you received from the Syracuse community. I am looking forward to the bridges you will build to fulfill your “Rise Above” pledge.

    Ben, I was very happy with your participation in the Demandchange gathering at the Palace Theatre last night. You have a good kid with Liam Kirst working with your campaign. I am a retired teacher from the SCSD who’s children attended city schools with great success. What I am interested in with all the candidates is that we increase police presence and stop with the lip service we have heard over the years with regard to improving our schools. The Code of Conduct we currently have may be appropriate but we don’t offer the proper services for kids who come from homes that need help and therefore act inappropriately in school. I don’t want more suspensions, but we also need to make sure that the kids that do the right thing have their rights protected. We need a mayor that will battle to help make our schools a place that will result in families staying and moving into the city. It is not what a candidate says now that I am focusing on it is the action taken while in office.

    Mr. Walsh,

    My name is John Dermody and I am a high school teacher working for the Syracuse City School District. Your campaign caught my attention over the last few months, and I am proud to support your candidacy. One of my family members, Charlie Ryan, was a two term mayor of Springfield, Massachusetts, and recently I enthusiastically spoke with him about your campaign and platform. He sent his short book “A Plan for Springfield” to me to deliver to you, along with his best regards for you and your campaign. I know the next few days are sure to be busy, but if there is an office or someone on your staff that I can speak to about dropping the book off, I’d be happy to do it. It is certainly not an urgent issue and I want to once again say how proud and excited I am to have someone like you driving the discussion and vision for Syracuse forward. Good luck on November 7th, and let me know if there is anything I can do for your campaign!
