A little more truth
City firefighters will receive stipend once reserved for cops
What would have happened if Dictator Leighton had NOT hidden this money from us?
When our Dictator was elected he asked all the city unions to help the city financially in their contracts. The fire union did (concessions = approx 3.5 million dollars over 7 years).
Well, I would have suggested that we drop it to help out the city.
And the end result would have been that Emperor Leighton would have wasted about a Million dollars more on his moronic pet projects. Would have still cut essential services to the bone. And would still be treating the fire dept like toilet paper.
There is not much you can say about someone so obviously divorced from reality and any rational thought.
I had a message sent to me over this electronic thingie. (Yeah I DO check all my messages) I had deleted the original but not the back up I keep. So here it is:
"wow, you're facts are not accurate. You really have some great presentations here. If the facts were true, you may have an impact. Check your sources. Much of what you have is incorrect." It referenced 'Fiction day is here'.
Here is my challenge, PICK A NAME. So I know which Anonymous I am talking at. There are at least 3.
Next be specific. If you have proof, send it. If it comes with A NAME. I will read it promptly. Then I will check the facts, Like I always do. Read my past posts, The dates and sources are usually listed. Vague "Much of what you have is incorrect" is nothing more than trying to start infernal net fights.
