At what point will Mayor Thomas McDermott Jr. get off his duff and get some new business into Hammond? Not another pawn shop drawing trash to the community to sell that which they stole from us the night before.

Road work so ill-planned and slow that it is killing the businesses we do have and nothing is coming into Hammond.

Hammond is a good city with good people, but it seems only to draw pawn shop after pawn shop. It almost seems as if McDermott does not even live in the Hammond community! What exactly is going on here?
