      If only the Mayor would look in a mirror and do some soul searching, I think that would complete the house cleaning. The rest will occur via elections.
      If I hear the name Dick Kelton or his Range Riders brought up, I’m gonna scream !

    They say housecleaning is a good form of therapy. We”ll after reading this blog I’ve had my therapy fix for the day.
    Well at least the poor guy won’t have to go house hunting since he already owns his home in Clermont. I wonder if they have a KMart there or a Walmart. When you work at one of them the cash register tells you the correct amount of change to give a customer. You don’t have to know how to add, subtract or multiply.

    It is telling that the Mayor complains about a handful number of activists affecting the resignations in the last two weeks. It is telling that he is a mayor of city government and can’t control his team players. It is purely speculative on my part, but it has been my experience being around politicians when I was a civil servant, that when bad things are publicized, they are only the tip of the ice berg. I would not be surprised to see some of Mayor’s Green team players tell us about more embarrassing things in city hall.
    The former mayor Jim Ward told an audience some time ago (that in the good old days) John Wisnieski of the News Journal did not reveal some embarrassing troubles within city hall, and Mr. Ward inferred that he appreciated that. Mr. Green does not realize that the old days are gone, and his refusal to be more open with the knowledge that he keeps to himself will hurt his legacy. I do not expect him to change, because I think it is in his character to blame others, and not open up with information that can help the problematic environment, and be more transparent. I have told him that he seems to be a person who keeps his cards close to his chest. He did not comment, and I did not expound on my observation

      SIr:
      In today’s City Public reading file, there is an interesting e-mail and response from the finance dept. customer service manager to the head of the meter department. I found this e-mail rather “telling” and the response somewhat “terse” in nature. It continues to show the lack of training, competence and teamwork.
      I am not as computer savy as you folks or would copy it and post it.

    I find this rather amusing that even as Mr Saunders resigns, the person 100% responsible for maintaining the running log of expenditures is the comptroller, Stella Gurnee. She approves all purchases before the orders are placed and is responsible for keeping track of the orders issued to all the companies above $25,000 so that they don’t have this issue. But I see that she is the only one still not being held accountable. I think that she needs to go as well. Why don’t we call for her resignation as well? Or at least require her to submit the documents that track the expenditures that show her negligence.
