Welcome Back Mr. Mayor! "I wish to remind you" that despite the fact that you say you have been here the past three months, bills to the Animal Rescue League have gone unpaid and their contract has expired. Even though our door is always open, neither myself nor our respective Council members, because of your seeming absence regarding city operational issues, have heard anything from you about this matter prior to receiving your last minute request to renew the ARL contract, with rates increasing fourfold. Once again, let this e-mail serve as an invitation to you, to contact your BFF and FPA (favorite political ally) Bill Peduto to schedule an appointment. And as always, any issue not requiring me but only staff can be handled by the group email method you seem to prefer. Thank you.
