Results were weighted to reflect the demographics of the 90%+ local residents who have access to the Internet at home, work, or school.

Citizens speak out about Mayor Marks in a survey conducted April 1, 2011 and then again on September 15, 2011

The full results can be found in the PDF above

•A plurality* of citizens (46%) in April and a majority of citizens (60%) in September believe that Mayor Marks should step down from office based on this issue.

    It's like garbage. You can put perfume on the thing, but it's always going to be there.

    Did you know that the top officals get free cars to drive too! They get a big salary and the perk of a new car to drive. Why?

    anita favors is just as corrupt as the mayor is. She should be fired as city manager.

    The absurdity is that we returned money intended for high speed internet access for the Southside while Marks was allowed to keep his ill gotten gains. There is only one worse thief in our local Government: Bill Proctor.

    Yes he should not step down but be fired. How many other city employees were fired because of this kind of behavior? If they were to ask me he was warned by a previous employee and this employee was fired because he didn’t want to use Honeywell smart meters. You need to ask the right people to get the answer you need. I personally know the Corruption in the City of Tallahassee.

    Marxy should never, ever have been mayor. Ignorant voters to blame. Both the city and county boards need to be cleaned out by the voters. Informed voting is needed. Qualifications only, not who sips tea with them at the parties and becomes their friends. The booklet concocted by the city on how they spend our money forgets to mention lots of the good stuff. Wonder what "deferred comp" comes under. I hope the FBI stays hot on their heels and the county crooks, until they clean them all out.

    Let him stay until we get the video of the FBI "perp walking" him out of city hall with Pittman and Knowles. Then fire his a@@!
