Get over it..You use to say there are some great job opportunities in Oakland etc .
Where is all of the ranting about jobs in other cities now.
Pay or die BS will no longer work.
I also bet that layoffs will be coming unless your macho lets draw a line in the sand attitiude changes and some real give backs occur.
Your lack of respectfor the taxpayer is one of the reasons that Measure A passed.The highest vote getters did not want your endorsement.
The sands are shifting and you might find the collateral damage more than you bargained for.Vallejo will be facing some hard times but you will find living on unemployment not to your liking.
LOL! I am going nowhere but into your wallet until I decide to retire, or maybe come back as a consultant, yeah, that's it, a consultant. On top of my fat PERS, I should be rolling in dough, "doctor", LOL!

From The Drudge Report......


"City officials wanted police and fire unions to accept a furlough program that would have required employees to take two unpaid days in each twice monthly pay period. If accepted, emergency responders would have seen a pay cut of about 20 percent for the rest of the year."
