  1. When is the council
    Going to wake up praise him for
    Doing nothing but raise taxes and accept
    Pay raises when no other city employees receive raises, if he was a good person he would not accept the pay raise and
    Tell the council
    To give it to the people that make
    The city look good the employees out doing the hard work. How can the council justify his large raise but then turn around and
    Only give other employees 2% or some years nothing
