Editor, thanks for the correction, apparently Mr. Pizzolongo is too confused to be trusted with a vote.

Mr. Pizzolongo you say, "Mr. Sullivan has brought businesses as promise to our great city." Well sir 4 years ago this City had a 92 percent residential tax base and a 8 percent commercial base. Today it is the same. Based on simple math, SULLIVAN is a failure. I have heard SULLIVAN tout the Veterans Clinic as if he had brought it to the Cape. The truth is the only thing he had to do with the Clinic was cutting the ribbon on opening day. Sullivan has continued to ignore infrastructure to the point that we now need 4X the money to replace the roads that originally could have been repaired. That means we need 20 million dollars instead of 5 million dollars for the roads. But he did try and save the residents an average of 12 dollars a month though...Look, the Cape can't afford SULLIVAN for 4 more years. VOTE SULLIVAN OUT!

Robert, how was that pizza that Sullivan and his cronies provided for you? Good I hope because he also is delivering the infrastructure increases he ignored to give you that pie.

Sullivan is also taking credit for the :Pine Island widening which he had nothing to do with, the cost savings attached to it, which he had nothing to do with. He has done nothing but cause turmoil, no evidence of any leadership and if you received his latest brochure with the flaming dinosaur, it only demonstrates who he really is, another thug in office. VOTE SULLY OUT.

The job of a councilman is to do what is best for the city and to bring forth the issues in his/her district. Councilman McGrail has steadfastly argued for his district from day 1. After 4 long years of watching his area get worse he now has the satisfaction of knowing he is finally winning the battle. The residents of his District would be doing themselves a disfavor if they vote them out. I hope that they realize that and re-elect him again.

It was not Sullivan that gave the gas tax dollars away for 20 years now was it 1Sandy. Why I do believe those funds were given away to the Del Prado Extension. Now 1Sandy who was the Mayor then? I do remember Joe Mazurkewicz pushing real hard for that project as an outside consultant at the council meetings. But which one of the mayors and what council gave away the gas tax for the building and paving of the roads? 1Sandy you are in the city hall look it up and report to us okay? Sullivan did get $6.5 million for the roads in the NW and they did get repaved. In fact 110 miles. Too bad the new city Mgr. never put the money in his first budget last year. Ps. McGrail will even show you the streets repaved. Then he will let you touch his piece of pavement he keeps on his desk.

Agree with Packer. Thanks but no thanks. Four years of Stumblin, Mumblin Sullivan is way more than enough for me.

@lightswitch: You are correct, Sullivan did not utilize the gas tax for the Del Prado Extention, however, pointing to the things he did not do is SULLIVAN'S legacy. The infrastructure needs did not go away regardless of what prior Council's did or did not do. That being said, we now need 4 times the amount of money to replace the same roads, that we may have been able to repair. In dollars and cents it means we may have needed only 5 million tax payer dollars not the 20 million we do need now. Intead of 150 dollars a year from each property owner, 35 dollars a year would have fixed all the problems. 4 years ago the voters went to the polls to elect a Mayor and a leader, instead we got JOHN JOSEPH SULLIVAN. VOTE SULLIVAN OUT!

The story goes: a young rookie airman gets aboard his first WWII bombing mission flight and asked the Captain “How do we know when were over the target?” “When the flack is thick.” the captain replies. …from the ad hominem comments me thinks Mayor Sullivan & his supporters are over the target.

1Sandy you seem to have a mond like a sieve. When Sullivan took office in 2010 the group headed by then mayor Burche, Bertolini. Day, Donnell, CM Stewart, mark Mason FD, had spent the city treasury dry.

People back then and on this website kept saying stop spending, don't let the $145 million water plant continue.

The national news and financial media kept showing the building industry tanking. Unemployment in all sectors except government was in double digits and growing.

Only someone like you who works for the city of Cape Coral does not conceive of what it takes to make a payroll or care could comprehend it was time to CUT WAY BACK ON SPENDING.

Sullivan and that Fab 5 council did make a mistake. They should have CUT those city jobs instead of carry workers like you for the 4 years. Those in the private sector lost jobs, homes and savings. While you remained protected and comfortable not knowing or caring what was happening outside your little realm.

The most interesting part of Cape Coral and the economic melt down was the city before Sullivan even announced running. It NEVER even slowed its spending down.

There were many people calling for the city to slow down its spending but it never heeded that advise.

Many even after the fact stated it was only a clairvoyant who would have known. As I said before read the road signs and when it says sharp curve ahead use caution.

@lightswitch: I work or worked for the City of Cape Coral?....Bwahahahaha! BTW, thee biggest mistake of the Foolish 5 was putting their crony, King, in the CM chair. Again, here is a guy who never, never, ran a City, never even worked for a City, but you lightswitch do know cronyism when you see it, they put this guy in as City Manager. Yea, I know he stayed at a Holiday Inn Express once, but even Sullivan told them, and you can ask Sullivan to give you a copy of the email, that (I am paraphrasing here) if we put King in as City Manager we will all be out on our ears. BWAHAHAHA...even Sullivan could see it coming. Oh well, VOTE SULLIVAN OUT!

Litebulb. Try remembering, correctly, when Sully took office. It sure wasn't 2010. It was 2009, November. VOTE SULLIVAN OUT. He has done nothing, voted no consistently, and, therefore, has no real track record. Can't run a meeting. Is scared to death of Leetz, etc. etc. Out with Sully.
