When allentonians have a mayor palumpashitsky paying an undisclosed amount of money to his favorite law dogs to do a bullshit study┐ This is a nondisclosure issue that must be addressed before any future contracts in the budget can be passed┐

It is simply put theft of services and revenues from city funds by the administrations administrator! Punishment will carry all actors from bigining to the end of this pillphering of publics funds┐

This is why we need to LEASE the water and sewer systems. Only reasonable resolution to these ridiculous pensions. Still waiting to hear a logical opinion of how else to resolve this crisis?
