In an August 23, 2012 Foster's Daily Democrat article "Strong opposition voiced against HUD sustainability planning project, Mr. Ortmann was quoted saying "There are always issues of balance between individual rights and freedoms and the rights and freedoms of community as a whole." This type of thinking for a person in his position is threatening to our liberties and freedoms. 

Unfortunately, this is not the first time Mr. Ortmann has displayed this type of behavior.  For 9 years he was involved in the process to revise Rochester's zoning ordinance where meeting minutes were not taken even though decisions resulted from these meetings.  Mr. Ortmann was also responsible for taking federal funds to rehab and sell foreclosed properties.  He used $2.4 million to create just 9 livable units - that's $266,000/unit!  He even sole sourced the development of the project to a personal friend who received 15% of the $2.4 million!

It's because of this type of unacceptable behavior we believe Mr. Ortmann should be removed as an employee of the City of Rochester!
