I thank you for the weekly single stream recycling (I seriously recycle everything now, and love that it comes every week) and the new bike paths that seem to be sprouting up everywhere. It is not often that I get to thank a politician for things that directly affected my everyday life.
I wish you didn't screw up so badly. I share concerns with folks who think the prosecutors were out to get you, but even leaving yourself open for that sort of nonsense doesn't speak well of your intelligence or ethics. Additionally, I'm glad I'm not going to hear you speak anymore; listening to you was as bad as listening to George W. Bush speak. But, overall, I think you did a decent job. I'm not optimistic bout Rawlings-Blake.
I voted for Jill Carter, one of her 2.8%. I'd love for her to get back into the fray. She seemed the smartest, most focused candidate during that Baltimore mayoral election of 2007. But, admittedly, Dixon pleasantly surprised me during her tenure.
