I'm highly disappointed that the Mayor is selecting someone for the Development Department that has no experience or interest in that field. We NEED a strong development department. Sounds an awful lot like when Frey chose Kory A. for Development Director. We all see how well that turned out right? And as for Tim G., why does he still have a job? If that's not friends doing friends favors then I don't know what is.

More unqualified people being hired to do a job that they will only gain experience through trial and error at the expense of city tax payers. You would of thought that the mayor would of had some idea what the mayors position was about before he ran for that office. His years of service on the council and blaming the Frey administration for keeping the council in the dark on issues was all a smoke screen. Now in the position to make competent decisions, we continue to see his incompetence fortified with his hiring decisions and the political appointees that he surrounds himself with. Layer after layer of incompetence.

common sense in the running of the city? we have advocated the hiring of a qualified city manager and make council and mayor position cosmetic, as for assessor's pay it was readjusted months ago due to budget concerns, we call for impeachment of Mayor Dolce, on the grounds of mismanagement of city funds and financial improprieties

(con't) Are you so desperate for union support in the next election that you will send the taxpayers down the drain? Here we are begging The Public Service Sommission to re-power NRG while you are out there promoting "business as usual". Why should we expect NRG and their customers to subsidize your bloated government? There is a reason why the city is in a state of turmoil and the reason is the lack of competent leadership. I am extremely dissapointed with the lack of common sense in city hall. It's just the same old baloney over and over again and I think the public knows it.

It's the same pot of money" said the mayor. Yes Mr. Dolce, but it's not your pot of money - it's our pot of money! This city is drowning in taxes and you don't know enough to reduce payroll. I thought the city assessor was given a stipend to assume the clerk's responsibility. Has that stipend been recinded? What have we accomplished with the Department of Development over the last 30-40 years? Has anyone seen any development? You are promoting the block grant administrator to the $60M position of recreation director. Has he been cleared of any wrong doing in the matter exposed by the state comptroller or is this just a friend doing a friend a favor. Why do we need a full time recreation director in the first place? Maybe what this city needs is some ADULT SUPERVISION and I would support the creation of a state sponsored financial control board. So, you are going to fill two union positions. How does that make any sense when everyone knows it is unions that are killing the city? (
