I think she has the job she has now rightfully. I think she finished the other job she rightfully held on the day she was supposed to and should be paid for that. I don't hear even her harshest critics saying she didn't do that job the right way after filing to become a Democrat.<quoted text>
No doubt there's a little smear going on but you don't really say if you think she rightfully held/holds either job. She can't be in both parties.
She expressed her intent to change to Democrat and the only thing keeping that from being official is beauracracy. The papers are signed, sealed, delivered and filed. That should be the end of it.
In order to stay under the 2% tax cap among other things, Oneida County borrowed $10.5 million so they could make the mandated contribution to the pension system. That borrowing will cost the taxpayers of Oneida County about $50,000 in interest long term. With no new revenue streams in sight it is likely that the same bookeeping trick will have to be employed next year. It's the equivilent of you or I making a mortgage payment we can't afford using our credit card. It will eventually catch up and be a disaster.
You tell me. Should the Oneida County Executive, the Oneida County Legislature and the Oneida County attorney, all paid by the taxpayers, be addressing the budget problem full time or should they be continuing this soap opera side show over whether Pam Mandryck is a Republican of Democrat?
