Does anyone in Vernon with a college or master's degree who commutes many miles to work get % increases that are proposed in this election? Give me a break?! Are you serious! I can't even fathom what idiot would vote "yes" to this. Yes, alot of them have done a great job of running this town into the ground and for the rest do very little else. I, on the other hand, receive 6 month evaluations and if you are not performing, YOU ARE GONE! The Vernon employees would not last one single day in my company.

I agree with you wholeheartedly. In this economy these proposed raises are excessive. What is to appear in the referendum that was in the paper today amounts to somewhere around $176,000 increase overall, and that doesn't include benefits. All we got was a measly $24 reduction in our municipal taxes! For this the mayor and council should get a total of $31,000 in increases after only 6 months on the job? Yes, I said 6 months since they were only in office 6 months when they requested these raises. And after Marotta campaigned with he could do the job as a part-time mayor for $500 a week! Wonder where our taxes will be next year?
Vote NO on this referendum.

I certainly will... Its bad enough we got screwed
on the sewer system upcharge, now they want a raise. I have not gotten a raise in 3 years. I'm not complaining, its the nature of the beast, but entitled people will always feel like they should be getting something because they are so used ot it. Teachers, cops,fireman, state workers. government..

These people had gotten raises in 2011. Look it up yourself on www.app.com and compare 2010 with salaries for 2011. Like you said, there are people that haven't gotten raises in several years, not to mention those who had lost their jobs. It's time the people take a stand and tell them NO!
