Look who is now blogging for the Mayor
This is one of many poorly written and factually wrong articles harming our city's image. There is no "order to show cause" the writer simply took a statement from a lawyer and printed it as true. A court would have to issue such an order and it would have taken ten minutes to determine no such order existed. The new policy of the PNJ is to write an insulting unfair article and then if the target of the insult ignores the invitation to respond the PNJ writes that there was no response, a cheap trick to make it look like it must be true. While everyone in our City government and virtually all local business people are trying to bring jobs here the PNJ is doing everything it can to prevent it from happening. The message to other potential investors from these attacks on the Mayor and the City Council by these inflamatory and vendictive Andy Marlette editorials: stay away from our city. Conducting "on line" push polls and creating controvesy is better suited for a weekly paper trying to entice people to read it, not a Gannett publication. No wonder many public officials have refused to talk to the PNJ. How disgraceful it must be for the many fine empoyees of the PNJ to see what is happening to this newspaper. And all to sell a few more papers.
Randy Hammer appears to be right on target with his article!
