  1. The mayor needs to do her job instead of sitting on her ass and not picking up the phone and call Marshall law into effect as of now.. it don’t make you look less then a mayor to ask for help with your city.. you ran for office and you knew what this job details.. so do your job and save our family and children.. or get out of office if you can’t do what the job details.

  2. Gary, Indiana aways in families business,for all the wrong situations.But when someone love one gets hurt.or even die on the streets of Gary.You won’t and can’t get the HELP you need”Mayor” please get help and to rebuild Gary again.Or maybe tear down the raggly little City,and relocate families to better cities.Gary, Indiana has nothing to offer especially trying to raise your children.Just get out of the DUMP!!!!!

  3. If carter would have just been SOBER AND NOT UNDER THE INFLUENCE OF DRUGS AND ALCOHOL maybe he would have remembered he had a restraining order and a long paper trail of police reports. HE SHOULD HAVE JUST LEFT THAT FAMILY ALONE AND MINDED HIS OWN BUSINESS INSTEAD OF ACTING LIKE A LITTLE KID AND CAUSING PROBLEMS FOR THE WHOLE FAMILY. I DONT FEEL BAD NOT ONE BIT! Keep your head up Trout!
