What have the Mayor Victor Marotta and Council members accomplished for the people of Vernon to have such increases?
In any business, you earn an increase by showing your accomplishments and you get an increase only after you have clearly proven your contribution to the organization you work for. In real life you only get increases in a retroactive way. You mus contribute to societey before your superiors recognize you and give you an increase as a reward. What are the accomplishments of the Mayor and the council members? how do they justify such increases? Have they responded to the Vernon's citizens action? I would like to see the list of accomplishment from the Mayor and the council members showing all the work that thay have accomplished for Vernon prior to given themselve such increases. If there is no clear contribution to Vernon from their side they should forget about their increases and go back to serve the Vernon citizens more honestly in the future

I moved out of Vernon 6 yrs ago. It was the best decision I ever made. It became impossible to deal with all the BullS**t. I would often go to town meetings and became so enraged at the decisions made by the people who ran the town I had to stop going. As usual in Vernon it's not what you know that gets you appointed or elected, it's who you know. With your new Mayor I see it's business as usual.

The town is laying off New young interested in their job teachers, aids, and others that actually work. These snakes get in and the first thing they do is line their own pockets. This can not stand. Marotta is an another embarrassment for the town and should resign.
