The last time Mayor Transparency Renner got to appoint an alderman, he chose Joni Painter. Since she drove all the way to Chicago to attend a fundraiser for Jan Schakowsky – a self admitted socialist, we know which way her politics blow. (https://blnnews.com/2014/08/14/fly-on-the-wall-renners-pick/)
Would you drive to Chicago to hear a socialist? What’s a socialist? – Somebody who believes in big government, government must control all, don’t question government, big taxes, redistribution of wealth, and government will create Utopia for all! It’s never worked anywhere, but that doesn’t stop them from trying.
Now Rob Fazzini has resigned. Where will we hear comments like “raising the gas tax won’t raise the price of gas”. Who will brag about their less than minimum wage job when Rob is gone? Who will vote for the budget without $14,000,000 for roads even when he said he would never vote for it?
To be fair, occasionally Rob did make constructive comments. Rob was concerned about the City’s bond rating. We are going to miss you Rob.
Obviously Fazzini is quitting early so Renner can pick a new potted plant. Get them in place, build up how great they are, and they give them an advantage in next years election.
Since the last pick leans socialist, I suspect Renner’s next pick will be similar. I’m not telling conservatives not to apply, but realize YOU don’t have a chance of getting appointed.
Very transparent Tari.
