It's crystal clear to the majority of residents with whom I've spoken that Mayor Daniels has to go. And before you go repeating the trite, "Well, of COURSE they tell you what you want to hear, Sue!" disclaimer, keep in mind that not every one in Troy knows me or that I support the recall. Sometimes it comes up RANDOMLY in conversation and initiated BY SOMEONE ELSE while I'm out and about living life.
I know...hard to believe that people other than those who work for the recall are upset with our mayor, right? Bwwahhhaaaa....uh, no. Not really. In all walks of life, in all manner of venues, from all ages of residents, this mayor is nearly universally vilified.
She's earned that reputation all by herself...with her own words and actions.
Some of her most ardent supporters (so ardent you have to begin to wonder what dirt she has on them to keep them so loyal and defiantly so even in the face of such overwhelming evidence of her ineptitude) continually say things like this:
"I think she's doing a WONDERFUL job!"
"She's really done great things for Troy so far!"
"Mayor Daniels is a lovely person with a kind heart!"
So in the interest of fairness and open communication...let's lob a challenge out there.
TELL US SOMETHING POSITIVE MAYOR DANIELS ACHIEVED IN TROY. I KNOW some of her supporters read here. They like us to THINK they don't, but then they go and reference the material herein over and over. It's flattering. THANK YOU! So it's to you I'm speaking. Tell us the truth you believe about Daniels.
Make it something for which SHE alone is responsible -- as in something she spearheaded and voted for, brought forth in a resolution and had approved INCLUDING her vote, and/or enacted with her vote that remains in place for the greater good of our city.
Reference remarks she made during budget study sessions and/or decisions she was influential in making that saved us money during those same budget sessions.
Tell us how she's grown the city's revenue with increased business/commerce -- but again, something SHE has done since taking office. No fair riding the coattails of that evil former council or manager she spoke of with such ire!!!
Share a story of how she brought a diverse group of our citizens together in harmony.
