Its election year…the Mayor said when he took a shot at Councilwoman Badalow for doing her job. At the last council meeting the issue for the lease car for the director of CEDD came before the council to take a vote on. Councilwoman Badalow sent an email to the director of the CDBG grant gave him the information that was given to the council by the director of that department and the Mayor. Based on that information she was told that a leased car wasn’t covered under the grant. 3 years ago I begged one of the council members to do this very thing. At the time I didn’t believe it was covered the council member I spoke with did nothing. This was pulled from the agenda with the excuse that the car dealer ship revoked the offer. Facts do say how ever it was pulled because yet again another lie by the Mayor was exposed. Question I have for each and every member of this council where is your outrage? Instead of accusing Councilwoman Badalow you should have been directing your accusations at the Mayor for doing this. No instead you’d rather “cut of your noses despite your face.”
How backward is this City’s administration, and it’s council when a council member gets chastised on public television for doing what they are elected to do. The Mayor is pointing a finger at Janet Badalow saying she’s only doing this because it’s an election year. What about you Mr. Mayor?
All of a sudden you have the secretary in you office applying for a grant for the recreation department. Yah no wonder it’s an election year and your not running un-apposed a grant for 4,000.00 a year to help pay the directors salary. It’s an election year what about the 8 years you’ve been in office? That’s 32,000.00 dollars missed money because you didn’t care until ” an election year.”
Two years ago you wrote the animal control officer out of the budget, but now it’s “election year” you hired someone in such a hurry only to have them leave after a few days. The council passed ordinances to deal with the “pit bull” problem in the City. Ordinances that are more than sufficient to take care of the issue. How ever you wrote out the person that has to enforce them leaving the city riddled with unlicensed dogs running the streets. Leaving residents living in fear not able to walk in their own neighborhoods without being armed.
He’s done a shake up in the ordinance department hiring more ordnance officers to combat the blight that he’s turned a blind eye to in the past eight years that he’s been in office.
Again just in time for Election Year.
The South End of Dearborn Heights is getting much needed attention from the Mayor finally. Thanks to the newly established Southwest Dearborn Heights Neighborhood Association. After being ignored by the Mayor for so long they decided to take matters into their own hands.
Yep it’s an election year Mr. Mayor and you are sure trying to make yourself look good for the voters. Things you should’ve been doing all along you’re trying to do now. Unlike you councilwoman Badalow candidate for Mayor has been doing her job all these years.
Please council stop this do your jobs and stop taking childish digs. Please remember there are a couple of you up for re-election are you playing it up at council because it’s an election year. I don’t think any of you are I think there is one candidate doing that-the Mayor.
