I was reading the papers today and I noticed a disturbing figure.
Ciavarella's attorneys, Flora and Ruzzo were paid $75 per hour by the government
But JJ Murphy, who is NOT a lawyer, gets $300 an hour. Does that seem right?
I also have to wonder about the "$8 million would come off the top to retire remaining indebtedness on the intermodal and other city garages." If the $12 million parking garage had REALLY cost $12 million, instead of $28 to 29 million, it would be payed off and that money would be going into the city coffers instead of paying outrageous fees to the dictators friends.
We NEED to watch this and NOT trust what the dictator and his cronies say.
On a different note (not really), our city council is raking in the dough. $20,665 for travel in 2007!!!
I guess I shouldn't be surprised. Tony Thomas, after stiffing Harry's market for $16,000, took a paid 'vacation' with only 1 month left in office. BTW council, how's all that help from Tony Thomas coming?
