Rosas to veto paralegal position changes, raise

Wilfred Rosas

Dunkirk Mayor Wilfred Rosas will be vetoing the Common Council resolution that approved a $7,500 raise and a position in the union for a paralegal position.

In a news release issued Thursday, the mayor said council’s actions Tueday regarding this position will ultimately create a conflict of interest while also costing the city more money in the years to come. “These decisions that impact the city taxpayers are being made for the wrong reasons,” he said when discussing the position that was created as a management confidential post.

This also creates a dilemma for this city if lawsuits are filed by employees. “You can’t be part of the union and be involved with these issues,” Rosas said. “It’s a direct conflict of interest.”
