New rule for Berke supporters. Next time you want to extol the virtues of the Berke Administration, please include some metrics - some hard objective data that can be fact checked.
Here is my observation. Police patrols in East Chattanooga are down since he did away with the Gang Task Force. Now they seem to be slowly coming back up since complaining to our council representative. But not to those previous high levels.
Despite that, I think it is too early to render judgment on the Berke Administration just yet.
It is just too soon. However they should know that people are watching with a critical eye.
Spare us the PR, show us results.

It is time for some action and results to be shown to the citizens of Chattanooga. The people of this town elected Mr. Berke as the next mayor in hopes of seeing some changes that would be better for all. So far that has not been the case.
Shootings are at a higher rate than last year and the gang task force has been disbanded. What would you expect with that move? A different approach is to be used following a model from another town in North Carolina. Well, where is that model and when will it be introduced? How many more people must be shot before Mr. Berke starts implementation?
Where’s your budget? Please don’t take the Obama approach and not produce a budget. He asked for more time to produce a budget and it is time for all to learn of his plans for the upcoming year.
The honeymoon is over and it is time to see some results. I look forward to seeing the results for our town.
Trying to keep the faith, but losing interest fast.
