Could someone please post in addition to that the city payouts and any other information available. Fire fighters making one hundred plus. At least they didn't give money away to fired employees. They do not call it firing, they gave them money to leave and then told us to ask the city administrator. Talk about scamming the public. At least the fire fighters have to work, what has Robinson done for all the money they have gotten? What has been accomplished? What will be accomplished. No Achievements, just bashing of an alderman. Do they think we are that dumb? I do not like the administrator of the fire dept.'s double dipping. Of course, he is a Piazza relative. Gregory's mother's twin brother was married to a Chronholm. One of her brothers is the father of the fire department double dipper. Let's keep it all in the family, right. And then Piazxa has the nerve to write about this city council majority when the family is raking it in $$$$$ wise. It never ceases to amaze me!

Before this thread goes off with the usual nonsense please get something straight.

The Lockport Township Fire Department is a seperate governmental agency than the City of Lockport. The only connection is the word Lockport.

Nobody at the City of Lockport, including all aldermen, the Mayor and any city worker has any the ability to make any decision for the Lockport Township Fire Department.

Therefore, all of the usual Turner and Collerelli nonsense that is to come later in this thread has nothing to do with the Fire Department.

I believe Marynowski will somehow get this confused. You know she has a convoluted way of thinking, just watch her on TV. She isn't the sharpest knife in the drawer either!

You are right. However it goes to show the allies are on both sides. You better believe it as it is true. If you think for one minute that the Piazza, Chronholm do not lean on one another you are totally false. They even had their signs together when Sally Chronholm ran. Look at the list of firemen. There are relatives up the nose on there of former people in the fire dept. and former relatives of the city. No one said anything about decision making. It is just like the township gov't, giving away freebies. You can think what you like, I know. I have been around here long enough to know what is what. Piazza is talking saving money and the parellel is that his relative is taking the money, triple dipping, from the taxpayer. Well, I see that as noteworthy. Maybe you do not, I do.

If you call it Turner nonsense ok. If you call it Pete nonsense it is not ok. Turner is equating every post as Pete. Pete has allies that are firing back. I do not think there is any parellel in this. Turner is getting his way with our tax money, Pete is just sitting there as part of the minority saying what he thinks. And what does the majority do, TRY TO STOP HIM. Sorry, it is all as plain as your nose on your face. On here Pete has even had death threats, that crosses the line. Who is it? It is our ambassador of good will on the city council and to say he is head of the majority shows the illegal activity that is going on. There is a Open Meetings Act. You are not going to tell me that these people do not meet and he gives them the high sign at the meetings. That is illegal. That is wrong. You call this nonsense, we call it truth.

Wow, all I did was point out that the city council has no ability to make any decisions relating to the fire department.

The point was to make sure that people kept the fire department and the city totally separate. Whether the Piazzas and the Cronholms are related has nothing to do with either the city or the fire department. Believing that there is some conspiracy just because they share ancestors is nuts.

Think what you like. I do not care because I know all of them and know how they think. Let's go for a motorcycle drive? If you know what I am talking about we are on the same page. You make no sense to me, and I think your ideas are nuts. Piazza is hiding something. We pay taxes to both groups the city and the fire department. They are closely related and politics are the almighty to them. Bye! Take a look at the new fire station. Do you know who built it for Chronholm? His name is Piazza Masonry. Now I wonder how he got that job?

What exactly does the new fire station have to do with the City of Lockport?

If you created a post about ice cream flavors this guy would find a way to bring in the evil majority into it. Don't take it personal, he suffers from Turner tourettes.

Are you questioning the Cronholm/Piazza "ancestral nuts"? They have been very important in raising a "dynasty in Lockport"! But in some cases there has been too much "in-breeding".

Because when you are a relative and they believe you should get the money, like our esteemed council members do for their friends, they give the business to them. Let's clean house of both the city council and the fire department big wigs. Of course, Piazza Masonry has his garage next to and with the Township Commissioner. You know him he was the one who took the Township truck to Fla. and they caught him with his pants down. It is all in the family and friends.

I find it amazing that people are harping on the salaries of people that actually WORK and do good for our kids and our community, such as teachers and firefighters, but yet NOBODY says a damn word about the Banksters and the MILLIONS they got away with.....?!?!? all from the taxpayers!?! AFTER kicking so many taxpayers out of their homes!? SERIOUSLY!?!?!?
