    Since this shameful Mayor loves doing photo ops so much, he should do a photo op everytime there is a shooting in Paterson

      Why is it that Paterson can't catch a break? I can't remember the last time we had a half way decent mayor and that's because we haven't had one in the last 50 years. Every mayor P-town has ever had has always been out for himself, you know the type that's in it for power or money or to better his life, the hell with the residents. Not one time we had a good human being with principles. You would think a minority mayor would understand our struggles and try to make things better right? WRONG they are even worse than the white politician and a lot dummer, getting arrested for taking bribes that was Marty Barnes then Jeffery jones got out just in time he was rapped in controversy and of coarse Joey Torres that's 3 out of our last 5 mayors no wonder Paterson is in such bad shape. Maybe we need a woman mayor and I'm not prejudice but we need a white woman. Does anyone know what Hillary Clinton is doing for the next 4 years
