People will do lots of things if you pay them enough. Beyond the job, Ficano enhanced allegiance by providing these bloated pensions. It's difficult to believe he could be as big of a moron as he seems. His financial decisions all turn out bad like the race track and the jail. He gives the world away for pensions. His appointees go off and commit their own crimes. Ficano has tried to game/cheat the system himself as with the improper taxes on his house, but he doesn't appear to be living lavishly. This tends to support the "moron" theory.

All these idiots including ones at airport, r the ones to blame for this ongoing dwindling of cash flow in wayne county and money down drain to turkey awada .remember, it is our money he was giving away without investigating beforehand. He enabled turkey awadar to slither up totem pole and then to airport secretly with the cronies backing her until severance and exploded. What he promised in pensions and other bonus taxpayers will be on hook fer long after ficano is a name in the wind. Public passengerz at airport will be charged for her charity payment in long.haul all because of propping this lady up for who she wasn't. Just some showful person who wanted tons of recognitions for lackluster achievements for county.

On a positive note, Ficano seems to be on the Gandolfini diet. Just saying.

And i want everyone to know that personally i like mr. Ficano. But when someone in his particular position has had ability to have not let the things that went on that have helped to drastically reduce money flow ability in wayne county, he is to be held responsible including in many aspects his appointees also. I know he couldnt baby sit them completely, but our property taxes should be used extremely careful. The opposite has most suredly been done here in past years until public was aware of it. It should not have taken these scandals to have brought it to light
