What the city manager wants the city manager gets...it seems....be it octopus, his own outrageous salary raise, or any other tax payer funds! Incredible!
Well said - I appreciate the Freddie Mercury analogy!
Come back into the real world. There are still 11.7 million unemployed, countless underemployed, and those who have had to accept a part time job, since no FT work is available in many areas. All - the residual effect of the crash of 2008. There are countless jobs being loss due to the discontinuation of the Bush tax cuts and the uncertainty of healthcare; AND what net effect it will have on employers. Contrary to commissioner opinion, there are many talented and well-qualified folks out there that would gladly accept the county positions at what they are currently paying BEFORE the new raises. There are hundreds if not thousands of potential applicants out there! The trend for those that do have jobs is usually a pay freeze, reduction in benefits, or a pay reduction (State of Washington employees!) just to keep their jobs. In fact, there are most likely more qualified applicants than those currently holding positions with the county! Basic economics - surplus, lower wages-better skills / shortage - higher wages-minimal skills required. I am guessing the county figured the city manage was able to bamboozle the taxpayers into unwarranted raises, so why not the county too? Expect more increased taxes increases, fees, and special levies - total mismanagement of public finances, in my opinion.
What about the victims - more than 50 of them and their families? Oh my money just disappeared - that is absolute rubbish!
This is a joke - if it were anyone else they would have been charged 50 separate charges for each individual crime. But, as usual the standard rules do not apply to the sheriff's office. They would not have taken years to act, either had it been you or I. In fact the sheriff’s office has been known to go off half-cocked charging individuals when they lack a case. This sentence is an absolute injustice! why bother sentencing at all - this slick criminal has gotten away with murder.
There is no "new" law hometowner. If you do not like our laws please leave...and don't come back! This whole idea of glorifying the criminal and punishing a law abiding citizen, is really getting old. If you dare enter my humble abode when I am sleeping you will end up in the same shape. How dare you think you can enter my home, threaten me, and everything is just peachy keen – NOT!
punks, anyway all of them.........
Once again the sheriff's office and the city prosecutors have failed everyone. They cannot and will not do their job. I got a good cackle out of seeing the Coroner from Tri-cities in a judge’s robe. Since when are Coroners legal experts – incredible. The city is too damn busy worrying about the octopus……and anything that may require real work is a moot point. I have really lost faith in this whole corrupt local system.
