    I moved from Paterson in 96 not because of the violence but for other personal reasons. From what I see and hear from that time on is that the citizens of Paterson are giving up on their city. Since then when I visit the streets are dirty with trash and I say what happened to this town? Where are the homeowners first don't they value their property and if just one of them was keeping their property clean then go back to the books of law and call city hall to report the other homeowners who are not cleaning their property or letting the trash pile up all over the street destroying the value of the neighborhood. And why are so many people just hanging out at gas stations and in front of business doing nothing or maybe making illegal transactions 24/7. Where are the Police, those business owners must be afraid even threaten by these law breaking people. It seems to me that the politicians are being voted in getting a pay check then go to city hall or whatever they do their business and really doing nothing to bring back this city. You the citizens of Paterson take note you have the power to take back your town. Run for office get those others out nothing is being done it's sad to only hear of people leaving and afraid to live in Paterson. Call a city wide meeting with everyone from all sides of Paterson you the citizens need to do something before it's you saying I am also leaving Paterson. Don't let that happen take back Paterson citizens now!!!
