I realize that in the afterglow of victory, some people gloat and say things that are . . . ungracious. But, when you have guys who say this:
“It was the Unions that put Duchy in office n it was the Unions that took her out. Justice served!” read a text message forwarded at 1:24 a.m. Wednesday by John Sparks, head of Montgomery’s firefighters union.
is it any wonder that someone else says this?
First order of business, the council doubles all pay raises for union members.
Second, raises property taxes to afford said raises, and closes more facilities.
They are burning down the house to stay warm in the blizzard.
The Council just got through telling us how hard they worked to prepare a six-year austere budget, and how they were going to hold to it. Now, the gloating after Tuesday’s primary elections may have undone all the good will that budget built up. Going to take some time for the new Council to show that it’s independent of those who “put” them “in office” and can take them out.
