Fiction Day is coming!
It's getting close to the day when City Council will pass (Obviously without reading it) Mr Leighton's FICTIONAL budget. I call it fictional because .... Well look at what he has done in the past, in 2009 the city payed $322,000 in overtime because we didn't have enough fire fighters. He didn't hire any. So for 2010 you can expect to pay around $322,000 in overtime. That's common sense. Obviously he lacks that trait, because he budgeted only $125,000. Then complained the FD had gone through that amount in 3 months. We have no reason to believe that the common sense fairy has visited him in the last few months.
This fiction has allowed him to throw blame at the FD by claiming we 'went over budget'. City Council is just as bad, They have to approve the budget. So either they are;
1 Negligent (because they do not READ the budget)
2 Incompetent (because they do not understand it)
3 Complacent (Because they simply pass what Mr Leighton puts in front of them)
4 All of the above
Remember NOT ONE council person has publicly stood up to Mr Leighton on our safety.
We PAY for top notch safety but we ARE NOT getting it!
