I live on s 200th st. My life and my family life is in jeopardy because of this useless city officials. They don't care our safety there is no any speed control system or any sign. But over all what to expect from trumpian mayor and all white council in a minority majority city. I got hit by car there at 200 and 32nd st recently while I complained non stop the last 5 years. I hate to live in this city.
So you want the city to put in speed bumps on a main road? Should they put them down Pac Hwy too? Don't blame the city because you were hit by a car? You choose to live there and the traffic has been there so maybe you should move??
I would only say three things to this post using common sense.
1. It is not fair to blame the City Council for you getting hit by a car considering that you or other the other driver were the ones at fault.
2. Regardless of the councils political affiliations one cannot disagree that the current city council has turned our fiscal status from red to black, a feat that not many other cities can manage to duplicate.
3. If you truly HATE this city so much perhaps it is time for you to move to another city more to your liking.
Unfortunately your overall comment comes across as the usual unsubstanciated claim to racism that now seems to be the norm for the radical left. Probably best just to start a campaign to impeach the mayor.
