Scozie was a bigger crook than Barker, he was clown who robbed the Erie Taxpayers for doing NOTHING.

Yeah, well good for you. Especially if you are in private sector. But are you really happy about paying a public "Clerk", with little or no real decision making responsibility over $80,000 a year in retirement benefits? If so rejoice each year as you pay the City the taxes for this outrage.
You probably think the Erie School District pensions are fair, like Barker and Scozie, both of which jacked up your taxes and left the District in financial shambles.
When the CEO collects he cares nothing for the shareholders or the customers. Why should he? Klemm had a nice thing going for himself and maxed it out. It's called making the most of your opportunity. A success story in the finest of american tradition. You don't have to pay taxes in Erie. Move to some other reality where people don't get fleeced by business men and nobody has to pay taxes. You are just another frigging white crybaby.

Being a corrupt city democrap is hitting the lottery of life?? You pigs are feathering your nest with the taxpayers money. Keep in mind you worthless city hack, that the golden goose is coming to an end a lot quicker than your brainless head realizes.

The finest of American traditions...government pigs fleecing the taxpayers. With corrupt pigs like you on city council, the city is getting what it deserves.

The inside scoop is when he retired he found out that his pension was so high it would make his social security taxable, so they rigged up this job to give him 12,000 a year to pay those taxes.Now I am not saying this but I heard a portion of the 12k might be a little kick back to a certain City Councilman?

He made the most of the opportunities he had in life. What have you done with yours? Hating on someone who has done well just makes you look like a sniveling little white crybaby. He feels good while you curse your fate. Face it. He won.

You wanted to be mayor, yet you can't write a proper sentence (capital letters)? Maybe you should of shown up at work, doing your job, not pontificating on others. That's probably why you got fired......excuse me "resigned".
When I caught a union city employee doing something untoward and no one on 5th floor wanted to do anything about it, yes I was asked to go. But you probably already know that.

No write ins next time. You will be one of the first to get fired.

Toodles.

What Have I done?? Had a stellar military career as a commissioned. officer. Had out more in tips than a deadbeat like you pays in yearly taxes. Raised working children who abhor the EBT society that your black butt relies on. No l;loser you have but nothing but being a typical pig leech defending those like you that mooch off the taxpayer. Gravytrain is going to end sooner than your empty head realizes.

Government job with lifetime benefits. You made the most of your limited opportunity, why hate on others for making the most of their opportunity?

Really,$12,000 a year plus the $69,000 lifetime pension for a basic clerical position. Hopefully Mayor Donuts will veto, if that is even possible.

What's this " hating on others" crap? This $12,000 for an if you can't find a document consulting fee has to be a political move. Maybe he is a nice guy, and did a good job but come on man. That pension is pretty good by itself. Bottom line is that the taxpayers in financially challenged Erie are getting screwed. Legacy costs are going to plunge local, state and federal govs into bankruptcy sooner or later (Hello Detroit). Meanwhile taxes go up and hacks get paid way too much for way to little value/performance.

People get paid however they can get paid. Are you against a guy getting paid? Put your job position on this forum and let others decide your worth.

You have to be a comedian or a relative of Klemn. You miss the point altogether. This guy is just a micro-scab on the taxpayer rolls. There are many larger wasteful expenditures. But they all add up to grabbing more money from taxpayers pocket. Mayor better veto this gem for Klemn.

The libtard is certainly not a comedian. He is not the least bit funny. The moron is another black affirmative action,suck at the teat of government, simple minded black. He cannot comprehend in his simple mind the difference between private and public money.

Even I think the Klemn deal is too much. This deal just makes all of us other libtards look bad. Erie will be broke soon. Get out and join Bill and I in D.C. when I am President.

Brenda Pundt tried to do the same thing except pad her pension. Klemm has always been greedy and hopefully erie city council will refuse him. Hey Winarski, you arshhole, go back to the eastside. If Robie can't do the job, get rid of her.
Get a retired stenographer that is looking for an easier job. An additional plus would be the ability to read a polygraph. Give the new employee a copy of the 3rd Class City Code to read. Then pay Klemn one month of this $12,000 goodbye kiss (saving $11k) to make sure the new hire knows where all the filing cabinets are.
