Who is doing the hunting? Looking pale and worried the assistant to the Mayor had that to say to Fox 2 news when they questioned her about the use of a city car in clear violation to the resolution passed by the council ordering the cars to be parked on July 1 2011. She went on to say that she has parked the car for the last week and is using her brothers car.. She said who ever is telling you that is giving you false information and that this is a personal witch-hunt..So residents asking the council to do something about this is now a “Witch-Hunt” residents who are struggling to pay a car payment every month are on a hunt after the assistant to the Mayor..
The assistant to the Mayor takes home 60,000.00 a year and does not own a car she use to work in a Sports bar that she took the city car to. This is the same assistant who put down that she drove the car for 15 personal miles from the month of August 2010 to March of 2011. This was talked about by Janet Badalow at a study session held by the city council in June of 2011. In the same report Councilwoman Horvath sat down and talked with the reporter said when asked who pay’s for the gas she said “we do.” That is not all that we have paid for. The last 6 years the taxpayer has paid for the insurance, maintenance, and everything else that has to go into keeping a car running.
The Mayor said that he would reprimand anyone who would be violating the resolution passed by the council. Just who are you trying to kid Mr. Mayor Janet Badalow said at the Council meeting held on July 26 that she has photos of the car parked at his assistants house over the July 4 weekend and she would be more than happy to show them to the Mayor. To this there was no response. According to the Mayors assistant she has been driving her brothers car for one week. You do the math she has been in clear violation of the resolution and no the Mayor did not reprimand her in any way. She parked the car under orders from the Mayor saying clearly to the council and the taxpayers that she did not listen to what they (the council have to say) or we the taxpayers are asking for.

How long do you think it will be until she does take that car home when things die down will she be taking it home again? She might become one of us average mortals out here in the real world and have to make a car payment, insurance payment, and god forbid pay for her own gas. We will just have to wait and see.
