As i ride thru my blue class neighborhoods, I beep at lots of people between High street , 4th , Hepburn and Newberry , I know a lot of people who live there, TRADESMAN blocks, we have 50 plus police man, I suggest these police get out of their cars and get to know their blocks Assign a block or 2 to each cop , why not?? Knowing who is good and trouble would stop profiling. and eliminate fear. i am in williamsport everyday for 20 years in these working class neighborhoods and my perception is a lot different because i know my neighbors, looks can be deceiving.

Can someone clarify something for me: Is Gerardi talking about the city granting police powers to the codes department?

(Do they have police powers already?)

Why would the SG print this article the day after they printed the story that tenant registration would not be part of the ordinance? Are they trying to make Mr. Gerardi look stupid? I'm sure this interview was done before the decision was made to eliminate the tenant registration requirement. Come on SG, get your act together.
