Remember this when you go vote this time. Don't believe the sounds bites that was dropped off at your door. Don't believe the ramblings of them during a meeting or newspapers.
Do I feel that All those running against them have the answers and that suddenly come June 2013 we will all wake up and problems will be solved. Absolutely not. Do I feel that ALL those running against them after they are elected will at least put this city back on the right track again. YES.
Even Steve stated he does not hold bad feelings for Robinson, just would have them bid on projects which then gives the city the best bang for its money. Put out a bid process for a city engineer firm, winner gets all and becomes the city's firm and if Robinson wins the bid then so be it, but we all know Robinson would not win a bid, for they were not able to win when this procedure happened just a few years ago.
Do we need outside law firm, absolutely, only you use them as needed, not on a $150,000 plus guarantee yearly. Who paid the bill to defend a certain alderman during their petition dispute from Odelson or was that a freeby or just included with the cities regular billing. It is one thing to pay a lawyer to defend a alderman for duties while in office, but never to defend them for a election dispute.
All we can do is ask questions and be informed.
Remember a 29 million dollar mistake yesterday, but today we need 30 million dollars worth of work. Go figure. Had the rate increases not went into effect, and since this council put a stop to all projects that was supposed to pay for, now there is money in the bank which allows them to their usual tactics of go for BOND and pay interest.
In closing, remember it is this group that claims they were voted in by the will of the people and that the rest should respect those wishes. Sounds good. Then why don't this same group respect the wishes of all the voters who approved a pay as you go tax increase for the roads. Going out for BOND and paying interest was not what the voters approved either. Hence the FORKED TONGUE name fits so well as does HEAD COWARD for not answering questions during public meetings, ABSTAINING QUEEN for doing just that on a very simple vote, and of course SLEEPY that is easy to figure out.
Ok its your turn, go ahead with the usual vulger, disrespect etc. OH yes and I am Darren,Pete,Joe,Pat,Ron,Steve etc.
