What a Shameful Display by our Mayor, this is the man the people of Dearborn Heights voted for. This man who made it painfully obvious that he can not handle any kind of pressure. Our Mayor had a full-blown ti raid at city council, for what reason well of course, because of the sore spot. When councilwoman Horvath asked if she was working in the NSP program, that the city council agreed to make two positions for, our Mayor lost it. He went on to say that councils been told that they can not talk about this, so Mr. Mayor you want to shut the mouth of the only people who we the voters have to ask the tough questions. You would have the very people who are trying to stop you from violating the charter shut up, while you get to keep doing whatever you want with regards to this person.
You move them after their 6 months are up, but they can not say a word about it because they’ve been told they can’t discuss it. You hire her for a job before it was even created, and they have to shut up. You keep her after the 6 months are up, in clear violation of the charter ( until corporate counsel will state the section that it say’s they can do that) I will keep saying they can not, and they’re told they can not talk about it. She civil service test, to take a new position, without leaving the city for 6 months, and guess what you got it they can not talk about it. How convenient for you Mr. Mayor to make sure that the very people who could do something about this, again told they could not discuss it. So the council’s put in an impossible position, they want to do right by the voters, they want to up- hold the charter, but our Mayor’s making sure that they can not. To see his reaction tonight to yell at a city council member, all because he can not stand to have someone stand up to him, and tell him you Mr. Mayor are violating everything you swore to uphold. Mr. Mayor you caved under just one question, she did not even get to finish what she was trying to say before you were down her throat. That disgusting display put into question just how reasonable you are, have you gone too far? What happened to you Mr. Mayor you use to be a reasonable man.
