I won't support an override for public safety, either, for a couple of reasons.
1. An override is a permanent tax increase. Forget it.
2. Nothing prevents the administration from simply using the money for whatever they want. I have no doubt
a significant portion, if not all of it, would wind up in the school coffers. Forget it.
I don't trust these people as far as I could throw them. Forget it.
They need the money for all the awesome pensions public sector employees get when will people realize that it is the biggest issue in this state\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\country? they should have a 401k or 403b also..and not great pensions..most of them are slackers anyways who couldn't make it in the private sector...
A powerful country made a strong history with its courage and determination. Wishing you great joy on this sparkling day! Happy Fourth of July!!
This 4th of July is like throwing a birthday party for someone who has been kidnapped!
And of course this string, like so many others, gets thrown off topic by one nitwit with the attention span of a gnat.
This string's subject is the upcoming override scam.
That's the problem with an un-moderated board. A competent modeerator would have deleted off-topic posts, or maybe put them where they belong.
Don’t vote for the override for Public Safety Buildings!!
The Plan is Flawed completely...
- Rank & File never consulted (& those running things will say Not True) ...Sure, I filled out my survey and I’m intimately familiar with those buildings but I can tell you my input was NEVER taken seriously. Former Fire Chief on the ‘planning Committee’ ??? He retired in 2012, out of touch with day to day operations but we all know those ‘personalities’ who have to be in ‘control’ & can’t leave well enough Alone!!
- Current Plan calls for Fire Station on Tremont street to have Parking Lot in a Flood zone, exactly where I want to leave my vehicle I Work hard (for this city) to pay for in a flood zone!! I guess I should just call my insurance company now.
The Plan is ‘shortsighted’ cuts corners and filled with problems. If you think we have difficult time recruiting Police Officers & Firefighters now, this Plan is expensive and will not help situation. Scrap the Plan, start over...DO NOT VOTE for this!!
Scott Forbes for Mayor
This is a correction for who ever think's this site is for an override. On the merits I read this string as community conversations. You most certainly are a big nitwit bully. Grow up!
Nobody said this site was for an override, you stupid flogger. Here's the first post in this string, which is what dictates the subject of the string:
"Read in the local newspaper that there will be group discussions on a (Spring 2019) school Override coming soon to the Theatre of The Absurd which Melrose has now become. No, No, No.... Not a cent until Taymore resigns and other City needs are given attention and money. Imagine Illegitimate and Inarticulate GI leading a group discussion? Never!"
The purpose of "The Community Conversations" is for Illegitimate Mayor Gail to pretend to ask for input for the MPS Override scheduled for Spring 2019. It has already been decided to hold a 2 1/2 Override for the schools. It will cost 30K to hold an election 6 months before the November 2019 mandated one. Why? Why not wait until the fall of 2019? Why hold it next Spring for the schools only? Why hold any vote on tax increases before a real Mayor is elected? Why aren't the Fire and Police Stations being included? So, the Community Converstions is ONLY about an OVERRIDE for the MPS.....so, the words/subject of "Community Conversations" can be interchanged for the word OVERRIDE....same thing....so, the strings discussing either the Override or the farsical Community Conversations are one in the same. All political candidates for Mayor, BOA and SC need to run on issues and tax positions.
Exactly right. Unfortunately, almost every time someone attempts to start a discussion about it, or any other timely topic, some pinhead goes way off topic and derails it. Who knows? It may be a deliberate tactic by the "inner sanctum" to derail any meaningful conversation, or it's just a generic indicator that the number of brain dead morons inhabiting Melrose is higher than anyone suspected. It's annoying as hell.
Happy Independence Day...........here's your tax bill!
Kermit the Frog is asking did alot of people celebrate the 4th who said they were moving to Canada a while ago.:frog: Vote Yes on override.
Happy Disjointed Thought Day !
There are hundreds of thousands of people in the USA with mononyms. That's you Willie.
Corrupt Obama, FBI and DOJ just busted in major Fraud everything found.
Gotta love the self loathing public safety officer telling the public to vote against the public safety building and push them to start over. The funniest post on MM in years. You guys work in sh*tholes. For 30 years the buildings were kicked down the road...and now they are on the home stretch and the public safety guys are against it. You convinced me. I'll never vote for a new public safety building. You guys are too stupid to deserve anything other than what you have. Live in the sh*thole until it gets condemned, then on to trailers. I'm telling all my neighbors and friends to vote against it as well. My conscience is now clear.
Second to forensic audit before EVER doing an override. Follow the money. PDR is the key to ending this budget shell game.
Yes, an audit needs to be performed immediately.
And who pray tell purchased the homes? You will have to dig deep to get the truth.
Actually, $1 consideration is typical for retitling to a family member (or even to self in a different capacity or type of tenancy) or living/realty trust. It's not suspicious.
So you’re saying that the city’s family is buying houses for a $1:00?
Or are they just unloading houses for pools of money.
Spoken by a true "typical poster", welcome!
