Granite City had a chance to vote for change in the last election, however, for whatever reason that is beyond me, many of the residents chose to stay the course of the downward decay of our city by re-electing the guy who has had 12 years to fix things and failed miserably. The buck stops at his office. However, those that voted to keep this guy in office for another 4 years are just as much to blame. A leopard does not change it's spots. Did people really expect anything to be different this time around? The city morale has been very low for a long time because those in office have not given us any hope that anything is going to be different and that they are trying to improve or develop our community. I sure wish Granite City had a go getter like Mayor Mike Pagano!
