Well, I have to say, all of this brew-ha-ha about the mayor’s support personnel "misspeaking" the whereabouts of the mayor during the recent slew of snow storms has been enlightening and entertaining at the same time.
The primary point that created all of this uproar was the fact that more than one person in the mayor’s office claimed that the mayor was our riding snow plows and tending to the city’s business at hand when in fact Bernie was relaxing in sunny Florida while the rest of us were packed into our houses amongst mountains of snow. Now, why would someone in the mayors office claim that the mayor was around when in fact he was nowhere to be seen? It’s not that anyone would be-grudge the mayor for taking some time off. It’s a very hard job going around glad-handing everyone and hob-nobbing with all of the citizenry. It’s the fact that the mayor seems to take off every winter for a month at a time. Does that mean that he works for the remainder of the year without time off? I would expect not.
So please explain to my why a city official who is paid $80,000 a year to manage the city can go on an extended vacation every winter? Is this a part-time job? If it is then why is the city paying full-time wages?
Maybe that is why his cronies needed to "misspeak" about his whereabouts.
