City Council wants re-election without dispute
Original post made by Larry Jeskin, Cuesta Park, on Aug 31, 2010
This is a common re-occurrence with our council and city employees. They proceed to say that everybody is doing a great job. Why not, our city officials and employees get paid more than larger cities like San Jose. Ridiculous, how our own Kevin Duggan, the city manager, gets paid more than the San Jose city manager, a much bigger job.
Where are our tax dollars really going? To overpaid, underachieving city councilmen and city officials? To overpaid, power abusing police officers that illegally detain and arrest medical marijuana patients? To firefighters that make house calls because the pot of water is boiling over on someones stove?
As there paychecks go up and the city keeps hiring on more people to do the same jobs, sensitive issues will never be looked at because of re-election is near and our city officials are very happy with what they have.
We need to stop talking and start acting. Holding our city accountable for there actions. Time for change
