Matt Ryan wants to serve the people of Ward 4, good for him... you got to give him credit for wanting to serve. However, that's the only credit he deserves. The guy is a walking complaint, will complain about anything the current administration does. However, like most complainers he does not do anything to address the problems. Some will point out the nabe watch groups and the community outreach. It's all an act. Like many I wanted to believe Mr. Ryan was a good person trying to do what is right for his neighborhood, and the ward. However, I was wrong, Matt Ryan is out for Matt Ryan, and does whatever he can to get his name in the newspaper.
Is there crime in Mid Town? Yes. Is Matt Ryan the type of person that can really do anything about it? Sure, but he would rather complain. BTW for the record, these neighborhood watch programs are a shame, what has Matt Ryan really accomplished, but to rile up the neighborhood in a Rosie the Riveter type manner? Matt Ryan is viscous and mean spirited. Matt can attack the Mayor, and the police chief all he wants, but at the end of the day he can't hold a candle to the great job that they do.
