Gosh. Things will be so much better and the city will be so much safer when Mayor Coleman is reelected. I mean, Bill Finney being his campaighn co chair and all the city of st. paul just can't lose. What a joke. I might have voted for Coleman until I saw his web site with Finney's picture and name on it. Birds of a feather.
