Do you really expect us to buy into this disingenuous garbage talk?
Good luck with that.
As a former council member recently countered to you -
"Have you forgotten that you directly and indirectly approved all the actions that resulted in the negotiated wage rates with the Teamsters, the bloated management salaries and benefits, the worker retention policy, and the selection of a Teamster-owned company? Shame on you for trying to deny your responsibility when you were Mayor and trying to act like the taxpayer champion now that you are a City Council Candidate. Frankly, your newly found concern rings hollow."
