Failed GA[edit]

You don't have any pictures. Also, use more references (existing ones are okay) in the lead and the first two sections. In order to reuse a ref, you give it a name. Look at current good articles for examples. —Disavian (talk/contribs) 23:15, 14 February 2007 (UTC)

Just a side note, images are not necessary for GA status, and references are not needed in the lead section, as long as the information there is verified in the body of the article. But references are mandatory elsewhere, and necessary in the lead if it is unique to that section.--Esprit15d (talk ¤ contribs) 18:35, 15 February 2007 (UTC)
There used to be pictures...I guess they were deleted? SUBWAYguy 21:34, 15 February 2007 (UTC)

Born in 1944 or 1945?[edit]

The article uses two different birth years - 1944 and 1945.

POV[edit]

There is no mention of any of the mistakes or controversies created (in part or in whole) by Leggett. For example, this page should mention:

  • Secret sweetheart deal with MSI Soccer for the Brickyard Road property.
  • $65,225 personal bathroom for his office suite for claimed security reasons while at the same time eliminating security/safety jobs.
  • Problem-plagued over-budget two-years late Silver Spring Transit Center
  • Support for $4M subsidy to Costco

and so on.

The only time "controversy" is mentioned is put Leggett in a good light as in "Leggett took the lead on a number of controversial issues." Much of the text reads like a campaign document - as opinion, not fact and is judgmental, opinionated, biased, etc. and violates wikipedia's neutral point of view requirements. Most of the article fails in this regard. This article should be rewritten to be impartial and objective. All statements must be verifiable with a citation for a published reliable source.

Concur with Donlibes. The goal for Wikipedia is to get facts on a person's background. This is written in "campaign language" style. Entirely inappropriate. 2601:A:3780:71:95DF:E153:3E43:DFB1 (talk) 11:50, 26 March 2015 (UTC) Jeff

Fire Dept. Cuts?[edit]

I'd love to see someone write something up for this. 130.85.218.243 (talk) 17:53, 6 October 2010 (UTC)
