Great letter!

The city council should in no way be arrogant or standoffish. Like they didn't f this up big time? They would be better off having listened to some citizens. Maybe we wouldn't be facing bankruptcy and layoffs and payday loans.

I sense a lot of similar sentiments regarding the subpar performance of the council and how we got here.

We need to hold those accountable come election time, gandolf grunter and swab.

Hold them accountabe in a court of law, otherwise it's business as usual. They've come into office and approved labor contracts the taxpayers could ill afford, bankrupting the City. These bankrupting labor agreements with city serving unions should be investigated for any inproprieties.(hint: follow the money trail)

In addition:
All of these public employee union contracts are negotiated and agreed to BEHIND CLOSED DOORS. The public has NO INPUT upon these negotiations, and then..........The payolla comes back to the politicians in the form of election campaign contributions.
"We the People" find out what we MUST pay after it is a done deal?

I believe that this corrupt system should bring the R.I.C.O. Act into play.........if this isn't racketeering, what is.

Contributions from Union members eventually given to those who approve their lucrative contracts
