If Kyla had been male , with all other details unchanged , he would be looking at a lengthy prison term. http://www.altoonamirror.com/page/con...5 years to pay fines , no RSO registration , it seems like unequal justice .

Let's face realities. The City's virtually bankrupt . The latest audited City accounts are 3 years old. It shouldn't be planning any non essential capital items .

What difference does it make where the officials live , so long as they are adding value for the City ? The old policy simply resulted in ineffective officials mostly living on the west side as the rest of the City crumbled .

Not the most skilfully piece of analysis I've ever read . It's more like a policeman's notebook that he might refer to in Court when giving evidence . However , this was always going to be a "political" enquiry by nature of the parties involved and the timing .
However , one thing that struck me was the revelation that Hughes had parking fees of $1290 outstanding since 2007 , which she hadn't paid despite agreeing to do so when challenged . Kitchen had substantial property tax delinquencies . Perhaps there needs to be a report prepared on sums owed by City & County officers to the City & County .

Unless the costs have increased , the price reduction should be $5 per month , not $1 .We've been possibly overcharged for at least 4 years & probably longer .
Someone should investigate starting a class action to recover the many millions of dollars potentially owed .I hope McNally appoints a new Finance Director..

McNally will have to show merit comes first & party second in the appointments , otherwise the City's credibility will be in the toilet with investors from the start .

"Rauzan mentioned, too, that he doesn’t accept applications for the department’s part-time officers"Nothing against Pantell , but its regarded as best practice these days for public official jobs to be advetizsed & to appoint on merit .

The streets are pretty bad & dangerous in some places . It would be good if any development profit could go toward maintenance catchup .

A behavioural psychologist would probably explain this "shopism" as a variant of group validation . It explains a lot of other things people do & feel a psychic benefit from because they do it with others . Things that wouldn't occur to do on their own .
