Excessive administrators, excess administrators salaries, excessive administrators increases, and exorbitant teachers' union salary and benefits contact demands.

I tried to do my little part. I did not vote and would not sign the petitions for any school board candidate endorsed by MDC, or city employees, or former union teachers, or the one employed by a state legislator.

That is the limit of my authority. I will also expose them on Topix if they cross over the line.

I will sign a petition circulated by someone else to surcharge the school board members who voted to fire Ms. D which now costs taxpayers big, big,$$$$$$.

Why give a failing school district ( including teachers ) any raises in the future when kids are failing left and right and are on the bottom of the barrel along with Wilkinsburg, Clairton, Woodland Hills Duquesne School districts..........OK I'll wait until you blame the parents for the lack of skilled teachers at MASD.........HAA!

Why? Union, union, and union control a block of votes that can elect school board members. It is all about the teachers' union and their death grip on the taxpayers.

And what constitutes a pay raise for unskilled teachers, outrageous pensions, part time work and a host of other qualifications ? Just cause they work very hard? Really? People buy that crap ?

I know, it's all the parents fault !!!!!!!!!! LMAO

I heard on KDKA news last night that 60% of homes in McKeesport are rented out and the landlords don't even live in McKeesport. No wonder these renters could care less about taxes and who runs this corrupt city !!!!......LMAO!

But guess what? GO TIGERS !

HAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA!

Call the Porkster for the books. He may be willing to contribute needed books right after he is exonerated of all charges or infinite continuances.
It the harm does not fit then you must acquit! Acquittals Abound!

Too much of a burden for us honest, hard-working taxpayers. Now our school taxes will go up?

How much will the taxes go up for the spongers in this city? ZERO. I am tired of footing the bill for the leeches in this town.

Story is true about the absentee landlords. What I don't understand is this.... Why don't the renters shovel the snow in front of their section 8 home, cut the grass, pick up the trash, sweep the street/sidewalk outside of their section 8 home? Why do the tenants leave everything for everyone else to take care of?

I really understand that landlords need to be involved, check their structures, etc.... BUT- there are times when a landlord cannot legally access the homes they own, they cannot evict the pigs in them, etc.... The rules favor the tenants all too often.

How many of these homes don't meet the city codes? How many of these homes are match boxes such as we seen on Soles St. where a 2 year old died?
How many of these homes need condemned and torn down?
Where are the council and mayor at sending letters out to these rat infested shack owners ?

What does the Mayor do to fill his 40 hour week?
This is what it is

Apparently you do not know or understand the rules of MDC reelection doctrine;

Rule 1 --- Any lie justifies the ends.

Rule 2 --- One job or favor translates in to more than one vote.

Rule 3 --- Do not enforce any ordinance or law on any voter or their family or friends.

I think the MASD tax increase was made to satisfy the anticipated cost of settlement with Ms. D. and her attorneys and the anticipated MASD loses of civil and federal threated litigations.

Go get them barrister CL! The anticipated victories in these three adjudications will beef up your resume and business will stream in.

No Porkster attorney fees. He is walking like the Philadelphia Phix failed sting.

He may have just bought another government entity.

What happened to the over $1,000,000 that the law enforcement authorities confiscated and the IRS looked the other way?

Everyone bitches about relatively tiny school tax increases and are up in arms, while at the same time demanding better schools, teachers, etc etc etc ......and at the same time ignoring the thieves in Harrisburg and Washington stealing from our paychecks every day.

Go figure.

And ignoring the culprits in City also. They are above the law. They sold the City and MPD to the Porkster for an undisclosed amount?
