I am sure I do not have to document my comments on the mayor's foolishness on his union memorandum which, in my lowly mentality, is unconstitutional. If the past mayor instigated the city union enigma as the mayor's office claims, then that should be considered as poison no one in their right mind would want to claim ownership of. I still want to know where that $11.4 million of liquor-by-the-drink taxes slipped off to.
Nowhere in our charter does the state pass down to this city the responsibility and authority to establish a private/public labor union managed by self-interested private parties funded by the taxpayers as a part of city government. If I were a city employee, I would resign rather than allow my most personal and confidential information to be turned over to a union. Period. Since I am not a city employee, perhaps our next best option is deannexation with the help of the top brass in the top law firm in the city.
There is enough going on in this city right now to keep the private law offices busy until the 7th seal is opened. When will common sense return and peace settle down beside the still waters and under the shade of our beautiful mountains while we still own them?
