dubious claims[edit]

I think this article is a vanity piece written to fluff Myrick up. He is not one of the youngest mayors in U.S. history; he's not even in the top 10. His city by population is not even in the top 10 on the list. No disrespect to Ithaca but 30,000 people hardly qualify as a "major" city. There are housing tracts with 30,000 residents. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 66.67.32.161 (talk) 15:37, 3 January 2015 (UTC)


Seriously. And what's with that Personal Life section? It reads like it was taken directly from his eHarmony profile or something. 174.25.54.41 (talk) 02:34, 23 May 2016 (UTC)

Copypaste from Mayor's own website.[edit]

Some of the text is copypaste from mayor's website. http://www.cityofithaca.org/131/Mayors-Office

" In his spare time, the Mayor enjoys speaking to youth groups around the state about achievement, civic engagement, and community building. He is also an avid reader and sports enthusiast who follows the Giants, Yankees, and (with no small amount of exasperation) the New York Knicks!"

It's almost word for word the same as the wikipedia article, except for the parenthesis about being exasperated with knicks.

Anyone care to refresh it?
