The author seems to fail note the city manager said the city could fund these positions IF the police would start contributing to their pensions. Any actuarial will tell you given the lavish pension the police and fire are scheduled to receive, they need to contribute at least 25% of their salary to adequately fund their pensions. If this sounds over the top, recognize the average citizen needs to contribute 22% of his or her income to max their 401k and pay into social security... for a pension far less lavish than the police and fire will enjoy.
and these guys are doing this on the taxpayer's dime??? They still don't get it...
This all might have some credibility if it was not being orchestrated by a lawyer who makes a living shaking down the city and county. The only person to have gained from any of this is the lawyer pocketing his settlements.
What are we paying these politicians for...it is to make decisions on our behalf!! I am so tired of NIMBY's wrapping themselves in the delusion that every decision they disagree with requires a vote by the general public.
We just had a city council election. If any voter did not consider how their council person would vote on this issue in that election, then they weren't paying attention and I sincerely doubt their vote would be any better thought out now. Enough is Enough!!
Wonder if the festival is open to Palestinian vendors and exhibits?
