outsider 1 year, 10 months ago on Blair prepares State of Downtown address

Waltspecht, what article are u reading? That was never mentioned about Mr blair not earning his pay. A city manager's job description does not include babysitting or personal loan giver to those who can't make it on their own. What you've got is a whole lot of whining!! His job is not business bail out! If these businesses can't make it on their own they deserve to fail! And as far as riverfront BBQ goes, if u can't survive making $800,000 a year, then U Suck at business management!!

Sister ruby u need to get a life!! I logged on to read this Just to prove a point- that you always have something to say & it's never good! I think u should change your name to Debbie Downer. I predict by tomorrow you'll have turned this whole comment section into a racial war zone!! You are an idiot!! And to answer your question, you can't make a dying thing live by saying it's healthy, but there's enough people in Albany who are Hell bent on being negative JUST LIKE YOU!! Isn't it time SOMEBODY breathed some sort of life into this area? Just a thought. "Life & death are in the power of the tongue"

Hey Dickyboy- Mr Blair doesnt have a business. YES, his hard working wife does and guess what-She wasn't allowed to recieve a dime of any of the grant money or anything that's available to others because of her husband's position. She's not moping and crying like all you babies! The comment of his "invisibility" is Ludicrous!! I see him out meeting with others on a daily basis. Maybe, Dickboy, you are the recluse one or the one judging? Im beginning to think Mr Blair could turn water into wine and do flips on the corner and people would still question Him or anyone trying to make a difference in this town. Furthermore, it saddens me that we have such a vibrant talent among us and the people here give him little credit. How do you expect ANYTHING to change if you don't give it the proper time and respect? Its only been what-2 years? 2 years to clean up decades of BAD choices..please. Mr Blair, I applaud you for your attempts and for continuing to put up with such complaining, ungrateful, visionless people. It's only a matter of time before he wearies of the nonsense and moves on & I wish him & his family well!!!

I find it very interesting how much Ms. Fletcher always seems to have the inside "Scoop" on every city situation. Id bet money she's biding her time for Pike's seat. She didn't get the mayor's postition so now she will ride in on a white horse and Save the day with all her wisdom and expertise? HAAA!! Maybe people ought to start thinking ahead and investigating Her business moves of the past few years...Just sayin. since she seems to have all the answers. things aren't always what they seem and she could sell a ketchup popsicle to a poor woman in white gloves.
