His behavior was definitely caused by the city dwellers that come up and trample all over them during the summer. Don't you know we are the cause of all their problems?

Wish we had a fightin' mayor here in NYC. In fact, there was a New York mayor named Edward I. Koch. A protester at a rally once came up to him and assaulted him. The mayor socked him right in the face and the perp. dropped to the ground.
Btw. His Yiddish name was Yidl Itzik. He claimed that the name was after his grandfather, who, in pre-communist Russia was a gang leader.

I teach in a NYC public school and I look forward to summer vacation when I pack all my gear and move up to Monticello. I have a little house that I purchased way back in 1986 and I have vacationed there ever since. I love the beauty and the peacefulness and the people are very friendly. I enjoy Miss Monticello Diner and so do many of my friends who come to visit. I remember the movie theater that use to be in the plaza where Home Depot is located. I wish there was a Movie theater in Monticello so I don't have to take my kids all the way into Middleton. I have to say that Broadway is looking good with all the renovations- Thank you Mr. Mayor. Does anyone know what's happening to the Apollo Mall? I remember shopping in there a very long time ago? Progress takes time and thank you Mayor Jenkins for all you do.
