The mayor of Amsterdam ny recently suspended the city engineer,richard phillips for "personel reasons".I don't know about the rest of you but if the man does his job well and everything is done according to the law what is the problem?
Is mayor Anne Thane asking him to do things he does not approve of?Is he not being a "yes man"?Is she not happy with him because she wants him to do things her way, even if they are not ethical?
I'm just asking because after reading several articles on this man it sounds like she doesn't like the the man.It sounds like she wants a puppet to do what she wants ,even if it's the wrong way.
I for one think that if she has a personal vendettta against this man. That maybe the people of Amsterdam should look into the matter at hand.
This woman sounds like she has issues of her own to deal with.My son lives in amsterdam and says she not all she is cracked up to be.He says he has friends who used to run into her at "meetings"Whatever that means?????????HUH,sounds like she has a problem!

The Amsterdam Mayor has no clue on how to manage a McDonalds let alone try to act as CEO of a city. It is unfortunate for Amsterdam, they seem to be facing quite the financial difficulties, and without any real leadership they will continue to have problems.

The saddest part is that she will not admit her shortfalls. Plain and simple this Mayor is clueless! Amsterdam is screwed!

WELL,THE PEOPLE OF THIS VILLAGE VOTED HER IN.IF SHE IS NOT DOING HER JOB,OR MAKING OTHERS DO THINGS THAT ARE UNETHICAL, THEN SHE SHOULD BE STOPPED.SHE WORKS FOR THE PEOPLE HERE IN AMSTERDAM.SHE IS SUPPOSED TO BE DOING THINGS TO BETTER OUR CITY.SOUNDS LIKE SHE WANTS THINGS DONE HER WAY OR THE HIGHWAY.EVEN IF IT'S NOT THE RIGHT WAY.I HOPE, WHEN SHE SUSPENDED THIS PHILLIPS GUY, THAT SHE WAS TELLING THE TRUTH ABOUT HIM.IF NOT, THIS CITY AND THE MAYOR MAY BE LOOKING AT A NICE BIG FAT LAW SUIT!GOOD LUCK MRS MAYOR,I HOPE YOU ARE TELLING THE TRUTH AND NOTHING BUT...FESS UP NOW IF YOUR NOT.

Any word yet on the "crooked"mayor?
I hear she was asking that engineer to do things that he knew were wrong.He wasn't agreeing with her on certain decisions so she suspended him.I smell a law suit!

I think tonight is their common council mtg. If you want a good laugh you should check it out on Public Access @ 7:30 p.m. If the Mayor does not get her way, she throws temper tantrums and her voice goes to this annoying high pitch. Wife won't watch it, says the lady's voice is like finger nails on a chalk board.
Basically I think she is trying to pin the fire hydrant debacle on him. Nothing is this lady's fault, she finds a poor helpless scapegoat every time.

O.K. so what happened at the council meeting last night?Did she flip out?
The problem is,Mr.Philips did not what to be her "yes boy"so she made up,a reason to suspend him.
With her background,why would anyone vote her in as mayor?

No fireworks this week. Mtg was short. She did do an interview on the radio this morning and told the residents of the city that we were getting a pedestrian bridge, rather we wanted it or not. It would have been refreshing to hear that she felt uncomfortable taking $16 million for a ridiculous bridge (that will be named after Paul Tonko by the way)and give it to the state for a real cause, like the Batchlerville bridge or the Champlain bridge, but no, the glutton would never consider such a thing. The good news is after two years she has finally admitted that the Chalmers building will finally be demolished! Yeah!

I know! Lets build a 12 million dollar pedestrian bridge that we have to maintain for the next 30 years to the dead mall. That will fix everything. Ta Daa!

The man said Ta-daa!

That would be a $16.5 million pedestrian bridge. Hey, all I can say is if you live in the area, please vote against Tonko in the next election! Only Tonko, Gillibrand and Thane would have the nerve to promote such a ridiculous project as this! We have the three stooges spending our tax money!
