At the League Of Woman Candidate, Forum Mayor Dan Paletko finally admitted what I’ve been saying for months.
There are no savings if the City outsources our 911 dispatch out to the City of Dearborn.
The CPA has had the contract from the City of Dearborn since January of 2017 and just now six months later is admitting that there isn’t a savings for the City and will not be moving our 911 dispatch. This man has held on to this information for six months he’s left our 911 dispatch center in disarray. Yet for months he wouldn’t admit he was wrong he left the center being run by police officers doing overtime for months. He is a CPA for heaven’s sake did it take that long for him to figure out that there wouldn’t be saving? I didn’t even see the damn contract and knew there wasn’t a savings to be had by our City. So why Mr. Mayor having seen the contract knowing I would think right away that there weren’t any savings. Did you wait so long to admit that? Why wait so long to announce that the City is now hiring dispatchers to fill the positions of those who left thinking that they wouldn’t have a job?
Do you think Mr. Mayor by announcing this at a candidate forum you would look like the hero saving the City? Oh, I don’t think so if anything you showed just how incompetent you really are. This Mr. Mayor was your brain-child your baby you worked on putting this together for two long years with the Mayor of Dearborn.
This is how you run an efficient operation? How much has this cost the taxpayers in overtime Mr. Mayor? While you and your campaign team decided on how to best handle your mess every day it cost us money. You and that Mayor over there in Dearborn took two years working on this and the one thing that you didn’t do was secure the City’s needed to realize savings for Dearborn Heights. No, you were too busy strutting around like a rooster insulting and badgering anyone who dared to question what you were trying to do. You Mr. Mayor had no thought as to how this would affect the safety of the residents.
