Excellent article, well written, interesting no response from fire or police. Very hard to defend these compensation packages. Maybe people are seeing the light. Let's get rid of Morgan grundl swab. Morgan couldn't take time to respond what a friggin loser!

Let's get some money for parks etc, by reducing wages. These guys get paid way too much to keep chico safe. This isn't la or sf Oakland yet that's what they get paid like.

Secretary of State John Kerry flew to Kiev Tuesday to show U.S. support for the fledgling Ukraine government, and the Obama administration announced with his arrival a $1 billion energy subsidy package. Why ?

I was very happy to see the News & Review standing up for the taxpayers. I think their last editor might have received his paycheck from the city for all the good he did. This new editor isn't afraid of the pressure the public oafs bring to bear. I hope it works out for her.

It's hard to get forward progress.....almost like Bell, the city officials do what they please for personal reasons (speeding as an example or drugged driving into buildings)....ignoring the public is easier for them than upsetting their controllers. It isn't till recently people have been upset enough to speak up.

Which explains the actions of the little person at the ent.record when public opinion turned against the counsel, by removing the "call in" feature serving subscribers. As though it wasn't a ruined rag already the ed. decides there is too much public opinion for his republican rag and takes out one of the last features many care about....I believe with the encouragement of, or under the orders of, his owner/master.

This I believe is something similar to what we'll all observe before the upcoming 2016 elections. The pubs are 100% dedicated to do everything in their power to squash dissenting opinion and will do anything to accomplish their goal. And taking away the voice of the people is just one tactic.

THANK YOU NEWS & REVIEW for being on the side of the people.
Thank Stone

Thanks councilor Stone for bird dogging the outrageous pay. Our Silly Council has done nothing to fix the problem until Stone told them what was what. Now they are starting to do something about it. But they still let the police and fire pull them along by the nose.

Councilor Randal Stone keeps keepin on. He was the only one who didn't vote for that firefighters grant. At least we know the people have one voice on the Silly Council.

Chico Police have been nicknaming councilor Sean Morgan "More Gained". They sure are glad they have him on the force I mean on the council. He's been on 3 ride alongs in less than 3 months. He speaks at there press conferences and sits in there community tables.

Don't Moregain those guys man. They already have enough.

We need to recall Morgan.
