Not only is Hauman not qualified to be mayor, she isn’t qualified to be alderman!
Why? Because both are supposed to represent the people who elected them. She doesn’t. It is her fault that monthly City Manager reports are no longer published. The Council never voted, she just mentioned it was a waste of money and poof – no more reports.
Hales does put miscellaneous information on the website pretending it’s a City Manager report. No more awards for him! (They were formerly award-winning reports)
The last (sort of) report is from August: http://www.cityblm.org/index.aspx?page=21&parent=11337
See page 2 of what is being called the City Manager’s Report: http://www.cityblm.org/Modules/ShowDocument.aspx?documentid=11353
Click where it says: “View Monthly Financial report”.
It will take you to this page: http://www.cityblm.org/index.aspx?page=21&parent=36
The last report listed is from October 2015.
The City used Hauman’s comment to stop informing the citizens about tax receipts. I’m sure she didn’t mind being used, she doesn’t want you to know the City’s business either.
Most of the Council wants citizens in the dark. Hauman led the way.
Does anybody on the Council represent citizens?
Someone should at least force the Council to vote on depriving citizens of access to information.
What are they hiding?
Don’t forget, Mayor Renner is traveling to a communist country on your dime. Actually 20,000 of your dimes.
Remember when communists used to be the enemy?
One more thing from the City Code:
Yesterday was a Federal Holiday – Columbus Day. According to the City code, that meeting yesterday was illegal.
(no, laws don’t really matter)
