Scriba mulls axing highway superintendent post after man with DWI elected | syracuse.com

      A newly elected highway superintendent in Scriba (Oswego County) got a DWI after being elected and so the town board wants to turn the position into an appointed one asap so the guy won't have the job for long. 
     Some town board members claim the superintendent-elect misled voters about his drinking. If that's an issue, there are a lot of legislators in DC and Albany who fit the bill.
      The public loses their right to vote on important positions every day and laws shouldn't be changed for one case. The people elected him, and if he doesn't have a CDL, so be it. It's not a condition of running.
   Highway supers often feud with town boards, and many don't like the idea of someone getting elected to a fifty or sixty thousand dollar a year job. They'd rather appoint someone for $80K/

How come in some Depts. in the COW a CDL is a "must have" but in another Dept. it's not, even though it's in their job description..

Someday we'll all realize that we don't need to vote for someone to plow roads, less govt. is better....

Scriba will be axing lots of things in the near future now that Benito chased the nuke plant out of town. Guess our little thug showed them.
