    Freeman -Wilson should be too busy taking care of her city to be on another board,,,,I’m sure that there are others more qualified. Gary don’t have any busses running!! Just a payoff for not sending in the state police to patrol the city!!

    Speaking of which: when are the city and GPD going to begin to implement all of the recommendations of the assessment team?
