Loose Ends

     The City website still lists Mike Sligar as water czar nearly two weeks after he retired. We had noted here a utilities manager from the City of Auburn, who briefly worked for DANC had been hired.   There's been no announcement and the media has been mum.
       Speculation is rampant on who gets the Wilson Pakula for the C line among the three GOP candidates for Assembly That announcement should come Monday after the Thursday petition deadline.
        Word is a primary looms for another Assembly Member whose district touches NNY.. Marc Butler's district extends into SLC and he is thought to be facing a challenger.
         A bit of an oops for local Conservatives as the State Committee  petition they and their GOP masters have been circulating was in error with one candidate from Hannibal listed. That community is not in NY21 and that's how they select State Committee.
       Over two years after it being promised in a campaign, the so called landlord registration law has still not be introduced at City Hall. Word is passage prospects are dim despite calls for passage from across the street.    
        Joe and Mika went to Nantucket together for the weekend....still no Mimosa Law, and the Lachenauer Plaza fountain remains on its side on Marble Street.
        Some things change and some don't.

ANYONE but Finley, please.

He turned his back on Conservatives by switching to the republican party. He in no way deserves the Wilson/Pakula!

its like at the county where depeartment heads retire and then get hired as a consultant, up to the limit where it doesn't affect their pension. Gaming the system isn't limited to Albany.

Exactly, Sligar will stay on the city payrolls as a consultant and continue to fleece us taxpayers as he has for years.Its all a game of those in power or at least think they have some power.

Nobody wants the water system job. Sligar did not invest in any improvements unless cameras watching for the Peabodies relieving themselves counts.

Oh no 1128 check out City Hall with televisions on water flow and sewer flow, new desks for the detainees(aka employees) the SS Gaffney(the peabodiy device) and thousands of dollars $pent to do away with a single job...

Admiral Harvil Peabody insists staying the course on a waste of money on Sligar's pH study. He was awarded a nice raise though.
