Today on the radio Mr. McMayor spoke of the Legislature being here in Wheeling. I could not believe he actually said they provided 280 tickets to the Legislature for their family and friends. Now the room only holds about 300 so do you really think the Wheeling everyday people got a ticket? Also saw some video on the news tonight of the waterfront celebration. Up front, in nice chairs were the "shakers and bakers"..saw the commissionors, councilpeople...the "people" sat on the concrete seats in the back...yea Mr McMayor..this was "for" the people of wheeling.
