why does jordan insist he has experience that we should trust? should we blindly trust him because he says he has it? it matters to members of the voting public to see what ordinances he has proposed.

he has been on the council for a long time. if indeed his meetings in ward 4 were productive then we should see some quality ordinances being passed. the city might not even be in a dire situation if some ordinances were passed.

it is great to sit around and talk all day, but nothing beats real action (proposing and passing ordinances).

his voting record seems rather mixed: this year alone he voted for atleast two expensive and worthless coody consultants (rw beck for trash and eva klein for econ development) and back in the day he voted to approve south pass.

this voting record makes the lack of any proposed ordinances important.

so for all the "experience" on city council and all the meetings in ward 4, where are the results (ordinances)? did alderman jordan not get any fresh ideas to help our city in all these meetings?
