LOL, The reason that you can't find the proof, you're not looking for it son. Look back on this forum in regard to a young woman's post. Do you know her, do you know her PM to me? None whatsoever...the proof is there and if you had any endeavor to find out, that would have been the case several day ago..... Once again, we don't see that we wish not to see. laugh

I'm not sure I follow that thinking.

I would love to find out Mr. Pitifer's thoughts on both Reed and Trump. Again, backing one or both of them tells us something about Mr. Pitifer, but I wouldn't say he is a racist for backing them.


It appears that you have a comprehension problem as well. Veronica nor myself called Mark a racist, the problem? he endorses a racist. Now follow along.... when we endorse those that have questionable moral and character issues, we have questionable values. Amazing!!! we vet a school superintendent etc. but most White Conservatives backing Trump, see no need to make him accountable to his corruption, lies, petty name calling etc Some thing was rotten in Denmark...in this case, France this past weekend. Those that elected a clown are now experiencing a circus...are you prepared to bring that down to your local level? I say that it about time to question your candidate's agenda adverse to voting your favored party line being the major motivation. I actually like Mark a whole lot but the environment in which swirls around him has me somewhat concern to as to his complete character. let me propose a few questions , do you hangout downtown with drug addicts and people of questionable character? Why not? Yet some of you see no harm in supporting racism, lies, cheaters of taxes, wives, people etc. I have no problem calling it hypocrisy while holding all to a higher standard.

Amazingly, we are acknowledging a new phenomenon, a White president that deem himself so smart that he knows the mindset of every individual in the world. Women, people of color, poor, educated uneducated etc. A sad aspect of this phenomenon, is the fact that it's reached epic proportion here in the United States. While we wait for Mexican to kill us, we are witnessing White men go on massive shootings. There in the Fingerlakes, the same group of Mexican being demonized are working the farms yet like a 2 dollar whore, are told to go home once we're done with them. here on the forum, we have a couple men that deem themselves experts on the matter of racism yet you can almost bet that neither been discriminated due to the fact that are Black, maybe for being White but the audacity to claim to being experts is so totally disrespectful and inappropriate to any person of color. Maybe some time is needed in devoting one's self to education and less on giving lessons on who's not racist. Good luck Mark on your endeavor.

As for me, until I hear a republican stand up and admit that their leader in Washington is inept, I will not vote for a republican again. The end....

Did anyone make it to Mr. Pitifer's Town Hall meeting? If so, what did you think? I was unable to attend.

Mark Pitifer is a nice guy but someone who is a better as a neighbor than a mayor. Hard core republican and big Reed and Trump supporter. As a neighbor you can always go home once you get tired but as a mayor we are stuck until the next election. I would love to see him distance himself from Trump's nonsense and Reed's unwavering support of Trump. No surprise he got Reed's endorsement. His son worked for Reed in the last election and may still be there. Reed's like a family friend. The Geneva republican party should have found someone less extreme on the political spectrum.

Anyone who has seen Mark Pitifer in action as a coach or out in the community KNOWS HE IS NOT A RACIST. I'm not a Trump/Reed supporter and don't know if he would be a good mayor BUT I DO KNOW HE IS NOT A RACIST!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I agree with your premise that Mark is a fine gentleman, upstanding to go a bit further. One major point, give your synopsis on racism and what do they look like? Where do they reside and who do they work for or with? Any of us can learn to get along with people, even live next to them but one fact you've seem to ignore, what's the personal interactions of one to another....Unless you're God himself..please speak for yourself and allow any said individual to expound on their personal experience..once again, I've known Mark for 35 years and love him to death (My opinion) now lets not negate some one else opinion because it doesn't fit yours or mine narrative. I use to own 4 apartment buildings in Geneva at one time, a phenomenon I've never quite figure out, several of my White female tenants were either married or dated Black or Hispanic guys, how in God's name do you call your significant other the N word or derogatory name when you're mad? Remind you, they share bi racial children together, is that person racist or just love to use those choice of words when it's convenient to get a point across? Not a isolated incident in your fair city... Maybe ignorance can be misplaced as racism, your thought?

He stood up, spread out his arms & said "I am going to be Geneva's first black Mayor" What a strange thing for a Trump supporter to say!

Mark is a nice guy. I've known him since he was in high school. I don't think he possesses the level of intelligence, experience to be a mayor. How he can say he stands up for minorities as "the first black mayor of Geneva" and support an racist, liar and a traitor President and Tom Reed is a joke

I was born and raised in the Fingerlakes and life's lesson has taught me much. I lived in a community where my family was the only minority who resided there. Over the years, I've learned to get along with everyone irrespective of personal belief. I garnered many great friends of all color but reality confronts another aspect of life, everyone don't wish to see you do well irrespective again of race. You'll find that some will "tolerate" you as long as they have an "edge" in term of success ie. education, jobs, house and cars you own. Mark is a great guy but I see his standoff attitude toward those in the Fingerlakes who actually are affluent....bottom line, visiting the old "Chartres home and rubbing elbows with your old constituents and classmates won't get my vote.Tell me what you'll do for the community as a whole from Clark Street to Slossum Lane.

I completely understand why you may strongly disagree with President Trump and Congressman Reed. However, I respectfully think your dislike for the GOP and those men in particular are clouding your judgment of Mark Pitifer.

Have a conversation with Mark Pitifer. Although you may disagree with his opinions, I think you'll find that he's got incredible interpersonal skills, and he is objectively very intelligent (not that it particularly matters or is important, but among many other things, he's a published author and holds a master's degree).

It's also entirely unfair to throw out the term "racist," merely because Mark Pitifer may support some or all republicans. I strongly suspect that no other individual in the City of Geneva has devoted and volunteered more time and energy to helping the impoverished of every race, color, creed, and religion in Geneva.

Moreover, I do not think experience is necessarily important for a small city mayor. As a local example, Svante Myrick started off with absolutely no political experience in Ithaca. The voters there do not seem to think it has hindered his effectiveness whatsoever.

I understand that you may not support a candidate's particular platform or think it's too vague, but name calling based on party allegiance is inappropriate, especially at the local level.

I'm not a Mark Pitifer lackey, but I felt the need to chime in. He is a tremendous individual, and it's unfair to call him names merely because he has received the endorsement of a certain politician.

Exiting soapbox.

A question, sir, if an individual just come running out of a bank a offered you a bag of money, would you accept it? There's the idiot's mindset that we must accept anything thrown in our direction to make friends or associates. A proverbial instilled most of us since childhood, you're known by the people you associate yourself with. Another question, can you hang with thieves and crooks while offering honesty and truth to the public. Now explain to us "Dummies" how we can co exist in two entirely separate worlds and still appear as an intelligent and well adjusted individual?

Question in regard to name calling, please tell us your stance on a POTUS that shows the mentality that would embarrass a 6th grader..it's not what you're saying which makes you a hypocrite, it's all that you negate to say. Same goes on a local front

Your dissertation which is somewhat lengthy and fails to address mark's lack of messaging urban flight from Geneva, high property taxes, crime within the police department, the failure of an expensive school district which negate to address the low number of Black and Hispanic teachers. Where are the job creation that existed 30 years ago such as Sylvania, Seneca knitting mill etc.

As noted, I have no issue with critiquing a candidate's platform.
