It's not being double faced. He has a very blatant disregard for downtown (for reasons I don't claim to understand), and there's plenty of evidence of that.So I've seen plenty of evidence for Nickel's cement headedness, I don't think I've seen any evidence that he isn't sincere in his views though (as silly as they often can be). I've never really gotten the impression that he's being duplicitous, though maybe I just haven't followed his career closely enough? Is there anything you can point to of him being two faced like that?
Tie that to the fact that he's far from being a consensus builder, or a leader for that matter, being the most confrontational, nay-sayer and disrespectful member of the council, today, and we have a mayor that's probably going to be ineffective in solving downtown's crime problem (he just doesn't care enough).
