Talk about something interesting. Who is Mondo spending time with these days? The old syracuse gal pal or the new former akron blonde? The new one is much more pleasant in my opinion.

Wrong! This level of cronyism NEVER happened before in the town. He hires his friends, then they get raises in less than two years that it took others 6 or 7 years to get in the past! And let me tell you, the raises with these new guys isn't earned. Most of Danny's hires on a regular basis either claim to not know how to do the job they are given, refuse to learn the job, or flat out refuse to do the job they are given. Then they are rewarded by being taken out to lunch by their buddy. It's out of control. We need new blood on the town board now before they further ruin what has always been a great town to live in.

just so you all know mike vishion already has two family members that work in the parks department. he is only in it to better his family. so how is that any change? crangle has cut the parks budget down and saved us money. mike vishion has done nothing. his dad was an ex cop who sucked his way up the ranks. plus his father cant even run the snack stands right at a golf course and you want his son to decide the whole town for us?
Wrong! One relative, who was a town employee for decades, retired a year or two ago. The other is and has been an employee for many, many, many years. So what's your point?
His dad was as good a cop as any. As for the snack stands, they've NEVER been successful or a big money maker, even well before his dad took them over. And what does his dad's career have to do with anything anyway? Mike's and adult. How about you try to find some negatives about Mike himself? Oh you can't? No didn't think so.

No Scott isn't one of Crangle's. Maybe the courses are so bad because all the money is being thrown into Dans football field at Kenney, that no other taxpayers can use, so there isn't enough to for the golf courses to be kept as nice as they had been for decades.

CSL ยง 65.1
A provisional appointment may be made when no appropriate eligible list of at least three people willing to accept appointment is available to fill a vacancy in a permanent position in the competitive class. In such case, the appointing officer nominates a person for the provisional appointment. If the nominee is certified by the Department of Civil Service as qualified, he/she may be approved as a provisional appointee until an appointment can be made from an appropriate eligible list. The qualifications of the nominee are determined on the basis of a review and evaluation of his/her training, experience and other qualifications measured against the minimum requirements for the position. No written, oral or performance test is normally required. The appointing authority must attest that the provisional nominee meets the minimum qualifications for the position.
THE LAW PROVIDES THAT NO PROVISIONAL APPOINTMENT MAY CONTINUE FOR MORE THAN NINE MONTHS. SUCCESSIVE PROVISIONAL APPOINTMENTS OF THE SAME INDIVIDUAL MAY NOT BE MADE TO THE SAME POSITION AFTER THE NINE-MONTH PERIOD. If an examination fails to produce a list adequate to fill positions held on a provisional basis, new provisional appointments may be made to any positions remaining unfilled. A former provisional appointee may be given such new provisional appointment. However, a provisional who has served for nine months or longer and who has passed an examination which results in a "non-mandatory" list must be either appointed permanently or removed from the position.
A provisional appointment must be terminated within 60 days following the establishment of an appropriate list. However, an application may be made to the Department of Civil Service for a waiver of this requirement. A waiver may be sought if there are provisional appointees to be replaced by permanent appointments from a newly established list and the appointing officer believes that terminating all provisional appointees within that time would disrupt or impair essential public service. The Department of Civil Service may be asked to authorize the termination of the employment of various provisional appointees at stated intervals, in other words, on a staggered basis. IN NO CASE MAY THE EMPLOYMENT OF ANY PROVISIONAL BE CONTINUED LONGER THAN FOUR MONTHS FOLLOWING ESTABLISHMENT OF THE ELIGIBLE LIST.

I've lived in Tonawanda my whole life. I grew up here, went to school here, bought a house here, and started a family here. Keep CRANGLE in office because he has made Tonawanda a better community for our families and our kids futures. My kids play sports and I think Tonawanda has great sports and recreation from soccer, football, cheerleading, you name it. I have pets and I don't have rat problems I keep my yard clean, as do my neighbors. I feel safe in my neighborhood, but I think that's the police's job not the town board.

Major point: CRANGLE cares about his community. Now who is this vishion guy? never heard of him? what has he done for our town? I know CRANGLE has put over 35 years of time into volunteering and bettering his town.

And for all you out there bashing, name calling, and talking bad about Crangle, his family, his friends or whomever... that is called BULLYING. And we don't need that in our town, so if you don't like living in a great and appreciated town such as Tonawanda, please leave because we don't need Bullying in our Town! Thanks!!

Vote for CRANGLE because I don't want to lose my job! Where else, but the Town of Tonawanda, can you do half the work for double the pay AND be able to drink with your boss on the job? I honestly don't think this Vishion guy will let us get away with the crap we do now.

VOTE FOR CRANGLE!!!

I'M A TOWNIE and don't want to lose my Zambonie!
