Okay people its time. Its time to get rid of Fusco now. He is double dipping at the cemetary and is not acting like a mayor. He is not serving the people. We can get rid of him through recall which is similar to impeachment. We will need some facts. Some facts on his actions as mayor. If you have some info - we need to know. If we do this right we can get rid of the bum within months. Soon we will have a town meeting to discuss the recall vote. Are you interested>? Lets get talking here on topix and we'll schedule the meeting soon/ Now is the time to act/ Lets get it done!

This is nothing more than a "sore loser witch hunt." Give it up. Your guy lost, and the best man won.
Get over it. Joe Fusco hasn't even been in office for a year yet. It takes at least 2 years to see any significant change. Is there any official rule in the city charter that says Joe can't work 2 jobs? Until there is, you really don't have anything to say about it.

You people are nuts!
Maybe you should

I hope not given that 8 out of 10 mayors have second jobs outside of City Hall. The mayoral duties are civic mostly and do not require full time attendance since the staffing of City Hall and City Council handles most issues. What should be looked at though is the salary. The previous mayor gave himself two significant pay raises ($8000.00 in 2009 and $6000.00 in 2011) while giving millions in tax breaks to businesses that have either gone broke or have plans to leave Rome once those breaks are done in 2016. Giving yourself a raise in a recession went unchallenged for some reason?

Of course brown lost, no one liked him, but fuckso is far from the better man, simply the other guy. I agree he needs to be pulled, put someone else in place. Hell I'd even make positive change in the role in less than 2 years. It only takes 2 years if you are not motivated to fix the wrongs, and you don't actually try. He is a glorified idiot sitting on two city paid jobs. That is stealing from the city, other mayors held two jobs, sure, but how many held two city jobs with free house included? And how many promised to be a "full time" mayor. He really does need to be replaced by anyone who has any real sense so this city can have a chance again.

The cemetery job isn't paid by the city so it's not "double dipping" and since many church sponsored cemeteries include a caretaker's residence, it's not something for us to be concerned with anyway. I admit it's a sweet deal, but as long as the church owns the house and the property, there's not a thing we can really say about it.

It takes at least two years to see results from changes in fiscal policies at the local level, and even longer at the state and federal levels. Elected executives from the U.S. President to the mayor of the smallest village in the nation, there are 2 primary tasks: Safety/security, and economic growth. We can read the news about decisions being made at city hall, but the only fair method of analyzing them is to wait and see how they work. If those decisions prove to be unwise, it's a simple fix; vote Joe out at the end of the term. But, if the policies actually help attract business and boost the economy without raising the tax rate substantially, then it's a long-term success.

The simple truth is that if you're expecting quick results in complex issues from any elected government official, then you're not being realistic. If you expected Joe to fix Rome's economy in 10 months and actually see results, you're not understanding that this is a national economic problem that is beyond the influence of the mayor of a small city.

What decisions currently being made by this administration have the potential to show results 2 years down the road? I don't see any bold, innovation policies being implemented. Just business as usual and cronyism.

Just the fact that Brown and Masucci are both GONE is innovative enough for me.

The Mayor of Rome is an elected official, with a set amount of pay regardless of the hours actually worked. It's not an hourly rate type of job. As long as he is meeting his legal obligations to the office he was sworn into, he is entitled to the pay regardless of hours worked. The legislative body of the city is the common council and it is they who decide the Mayoral salary. Some of the factors involved in this decision include:

1) Cost of living based on current and projected economic trends.

2) Analysis of responsibility which includes such issues as:

a. size of city in area AND population
b. size of government (admin, police, fire, dpw, etc.)
c. scope of authority

3) Current and projected income amounts used towards total city payroll and appropriate benefits packages as allowed by law.

These are all issues that you should carefully analyze before spouting off. If you really care, do the research and objectively analyze the data. It will help you avoid looking foolish.

Maybe you should read the city charter under "Code of Ethics"
Sec. 46-33.- Standards of conduct.

((2)
Confidential information. He shall not disclose confidential information acquired by him in the course of his official duties or use such information to further his personal interest.
(3)
Representation before one's own agency. He shall not receive or enter into any agreement, express or implied, for compensation for services to be rendered in relation to any matter before any municipal agency of which he is an officer, member or employee or of any municipal agency over which he has jurisdiction or to which he has the power to appoint any member, officer or employee.
(4)
Representation before agency for contingent fee. He shall not receive or enter into any agreement, express or implied, for compensation for services to be rendered in relation to any matter before any agency of this city, whereby his compensation is to be dependent or contingent upon any action by such agency with respect to such matter, provided that this subsection shall not prohibit the fixing at any time of fees based upon the reasonable value of the services rendered.
(5)
Disclosure of interest in legislation. To the extent that he knows thereof, a member of the common council and any officer or employee of the city, whether paid or unpaid, who participates in the discussion or gives official opinion to the common council on any legislation before the common council shall publicly disclose on the official record the nature and extent of any direct or indirect financial or other private interest he has in such legislation.

Private employment. He shall not engage in, solicit, negotiate for or promise to accept private employment or render services for private interests when such employment or service creates a conflict with or impairs the proper discharge of his official duties.
(8)
Future employment. He shall not, after the termination of service or employment with the city, appear before any board or agency of the city in relation to any case, proceeding or application in which he personally participated during the period of his service or employment or which was under his active consideration
Please read #7-creates a conflict with or impairs the proper discharge of his official duties.
