I see him out alot, he may not be engineering, but at least he is out. I think most of the engineering is contract work, but someone has to review and approve.
Then why do we pay him for? With insurance , salary and benefits, he makes well over 100 grand a year, him or the water dept manager isn't worth a quarter of what they are being paid. Ask the people ar the city that work with them, they will tell you how they are never around and won't answer their phone calls. If the engineering is contracted out they can look over it and sign off on it, evidently they know more than him or he would be doing it!!

He has his hands full with other things, someone has to review and approve plans, shoot grades etc, if you all don't like it then call your councilman and complain, he was hired by the former Mayor and if he was good enough then, well he should be now.

If he was gonna be indicted it would have already happened, this supposely has been going on for some time from what people have posted on here, I can remember even back when he first got elected to office people were wanting to impeach him, some were wanting him to be indicted and so far after all these years nothing has happened and more than likely won't happen.

I could never support a man like him, you have to tell him no or not give him something he wants and then you will see his true colors. He is not a good person.

He's a great Mayor, Somerset would be lost without him, the Council would have no one to direct them and the taxpayers wouldn't save that 20 bucks a year on property taxes, he has done alot for the City and has helped most people out in some way or another, alot of businesses and contractors have done better under him than any other Mayor, also some employees have done great, so they should be happy, just a great Mayor!!!!!
