Commissionder Hines has a lot of wisdom and seems to make rational decisions. The people of Ward 2 really like him. Demetrius and Bobby are friends of Henry Mathis - nuff said!
Taylor needs to look in the mirror! He was there as an Assistant City Manager while the staff built up their employees from 860 to 925. The staff recommended Pay Study 1, Pay Study 2, and a 2% COLA and he supported it. There goes 2/3 of the MEAG money off the top! He knows that the growth of employees is the primary fiscal problem. Yet instead of making the tough decisions, he comes to the Commission and asks to cut Retirees' pay, 4th of July fireworks, the Flint Riverquarium, and, raise taxes. He tries to placate the staff under him while they manipulate. The City staff generally are unconcerned about the citizens they work for. They are bureaucrats who put themselves first. When Taylor wakes up and realizes that he and his employees are the root of City fiscal problems, he will be able to better deal with the situation.
thats a poor way to refer to our next and first woman President - hopefully the Secret Sevice doesn't scan these blogs:) or the Arkansas mafia or whatever caused all those Clinton critics to disappear. I think Joe Biden would beat Hillary anyhow so you don't have to worry:)
It is clear that Governor Deal's policies are failing. Lets hope the 2013 Georgia General Assembly can bring some common sense to Georgia's economic development strategy.
hope they continue their success and come back to the civic center!
Thank you, Jimmy Norman and WGL crew for representing WGL, Albany, and our area so well. You delivered a major Christmas present to those folks.
they should at least restrict "crazy shooters" like the Newtown, Connecticut 20 year old from living in a household with a gun. psychiatrists and mental institutions need to be more proactive about protecting innocent people instead of worrying about the rights of "disturbed" individuals.
lisa collins. an economic development expert. seems to be a good candidate. didnt keown lose a special county commission election last year?
the City Commission is being fed misinformation by the staff. They have identified the biggest cut necessary - reducing the number of employees from 910 down to 860. When the City achieves that the shortfall goes away. The Civic Center is wasting money and there is no interest in reducing the $1 million thrown at Chehaw every year.
Watch the forum at 6 pm on Channel 19 this coming Friday, Saturday, and Sunday and you will see the whole story - the T-SPLOST was not pushed at the forum - it was fair and balanced. Many negative "con" issues were also discussed.
