The Telegram always manages to publish the news 2-3 days before the S&E does. And the Telegram has more concise and accurate reporting. No censorship either like the S&E....

For all those that bashed Wayne Nickel for NOT being at the council meeting that night!.... YOU IDIOTS! The man was seriously ill and had been in the hospital and unable to attend the meeting! You people think you know everything!
As for the HR position being removed? No city employee can trust an HR director that reports directly to the mayor! The HR director was supposed to handle all internal problems and was supposed to be someone that could be trusted with personal problems. BUT then again, she DID an amazing job with keeping the mayors affairs in order didnt she!

Unlike these two parties; there is no smoke screens here, no trickery, no empty promises. We want results today! I will bus the citizens of this district to the state house and encourage the rest of the states citizens to march to the state house with demands!
We want action! We will walk the talk! Where is Senator Flanagan today? The Senator is off to a back slapping hoorah! This district isn't about Jennifer Flanagan! It is about every citizen who lives in this district! The two sides are easy to see and understand. Either you want less government spending that produces less taxation or you want more job opportunities, re-employment and a focus on job creation!
I understand it like this, both sides feed each other. We need jobs for those that are receiving government funds. This isn't a snap the fingers fix but it is very do able. We must give energy to this fact everyday!
Welfare reform took on this path. We just need to give Job creation needs more energy! Forget this back slapping convention, pull up your sleeves and get to work! How can we turn this multi million dollar grant project into massive jobs for the districts unemployed?
How do we motivate the banks to give home equity loans? They are too hesitant! They make their money on interest through taking chances. There will be some who state well look what happened when they took chances, major foreclosures. They stepped too far forward and gave loans for second and third homes to individuals who lost their jobs on a massive scale! We need to protect American jobs! Google Dubai and India and look at their job creation rate over the past 12 years!
I love the world and the many awesome cultures that they present but it has to be "America first and foremost"!! America is made up of all these cultures. Every citizen has its own prefix, Irish American,African American Latin American, Mexican American, Canadian American, and the list goes on for ever to American Indian. Our allegiance is to America, America first and foremost!!
Another one for the gipper...
