Rubber stamps with health insurance.
The aldermen had 75,000,000 opportunities to prove otherwise.
They didn't cut or change one dollar in the whole budget.
They look like a rubber stamp, talk like a rubber stamp, kiss a$$ like a rubber stamp and vote like a rubber stamp. They certainly appear proud to be rubber stamps.
Poor Aldermen - they can't accept themselves for who they are
Ah Waka Waka Waka!
You nailed it on Zwirko! He is a selfish gross little tool. He and GI were the only fool who wanted to keep the three tiered structure in place. He is a waste of a seat! He can claim that he doesn't get GIC from his alderman work because he got bought off by the mayor when his wife got a job at city hall so he gets his insurance paid that way. What a gross piece of work!
I'm glad that a few people on here see the problem with Mr Zwirko. When the Mrs. WORKS for city hall, how can you expect him to vote independently for anything? His wife's job depends on the favor of the mayor and making nice at city hall.
I don't know why anyone thought that his candidacy was a good idea. He won though so Melrose gets what they deserve there.
Gail Infurna, due to her age, should know enough people in the Towers or just living in appts or condos in her ward to be more sensitive to the bad water rate situation.
