R these officials representing this region truly sincere of public service? Were ficanos appointees? If we as citizens don't get ourselves in order to have people working hard with our taxes then no one else is to blame.corruption will continue

The reason granholm at first was fearful in removing kwame was because she was sucking up to him when she first became governor but soon regretted it. Yes it would be.nice if voters could remove corrupt officials but it is difficult. An amendment to remove elected officials because of illegal activities should be used very carefully but I approve .

What you are talking about already exists. You are beating a dead horse of emotional upset here. Ficano has not been found guilty of ANY illegal activity except in your head. When/if he is, he will be dealt with accordingly. Most of us have strong feelings about Ficano, but child-like tantrums will not speed up the legal process and grant your wishes.

There is definitely good evidence of ficano soliciting employees to campaign fer him on county time which is illegal whether I'm beating a dead horse or not.

Alexander I respect your opinion. But who throws the elected officials out.?Remember Nixon. Elected congress from both parties were gonna throw him out. This is why we need people in who have integrity.ficano should not have the authority to fire anyone else for as long as he stays in which.hopefully won't be long. And I am a democrat.

People are free to un-elect Ficano next time. If any, ANY, abuse is actually proven, there is a process for his removal already. He has not even been charged with ANY illegal activity. When/if he does the perp walk, I'll be up front cheering.

Yes riddler but we have another 28 1/2 months of ficano. How about a recall? Is that what u r referring to? They never charged a lot of politicians with things. But it does not mean that they r innocent of wrongdoing.

May the investigators step it up to overdrive and charge him. We can't wait two years and watch that snicker on TV every time a reporter catches Ficano.
