David Hales gives frequent interviews on WJBC, I’ve posted links to many of them. I remember one of his lines about the budget – but I’m not going to re-listen to find it. He claimed any cuts to the budget now are cuts to “muscle”, not fat.
Of course he was lying because that was before we found out about the $1.2 Million he allowed to be thrown away so employees could spike their pensions. He is still allowing employees to spike their pensions, and it costs you money! He claimed at the last Council meeting 60 days was needed to study the issue. Changing the payout date is all that’s needed, so of course he is lying again.
Is anything Hales says believable?
What else is he throwing money away on? The Budget Task Force is a joke – they are NOT considering line-by-line cuts to the budget. The cuts they will present will be ones that can’t possibly be done, like selling the BCPA, and cuts to essential services that will make citizens scream. You are being played by people calling themselves public servants.
David Hales and Tari Renner are NOT working for the citizens. They have an agenda and tax increases are needed to implement it.
Can the agenda be stopped?
How angry are you? Enough to show up tonight?
Public Comment will be at 6:00, 7:00, and whenever they get to debate raising the Sales Tax.
Remind Aldermen Painter, Black, Mwilambwe, and Fruin will be defeated in the next election if they raise taxes AGAIN. Remind them about the lies David Hales tells. Remind them Tari’s Budget Task Force is a joke.
Alderman Lower, although up for election, doesn’t need reminded that he represents you.
