Buckwheat still dead

Excerpt from the Between the Lines column in the Sunday Register: As the city of Sandusky's labor contracts get set to expire at the end of the year, not one city commissioner has called for concessions or fiscal restraint in contract negotiations. It's not clear whether the city has even set up a negotiating team or reviewed potential concessions or manpower changes.

It's also not clear whether the ICMA report on police operations, or, more importantly, the draft version of the ICMA report, will be considered if contract negotiations ever do happen. That document, especially the draft version, is a road map to reform and fiscal restraint, but the majority coalition is determined to ignore it.

And, as the city's most expensive employee in history finishes up her first year as city manager, city commission has not arranged any performance review to determine whether Nicole Ard is meeting the job's expectations. It's not likely commission could even do such a thing in a competent way, anyway.

But the labor contracts are the single-most costly expenditure for city taxpayers. The majority coalition appears content to skip out on any critical review of pay raises or manpower levels. Working people deserve pay raises, and the city should have a critical eye on manpower levels if that's going to be accomplished in a responsible manner.

Wow white people trying to explain why its okay to use a word that theyb use to put down blacks so can i get on here and call every women on hear a b**** . Is this a surprise the register use va racial slur no this is the same paper that let somebody say they wanted to fence all blacks and shoot them i wonder if i would say that what would happen. Everyone trying to justify his are the same ones who tryed to come down on me for saying what i had on my mind about one of the most racist cops ever to walk sandusky streets surprise surprise. I cant help but wonder if the reason people get away with all this racist bs is because Westerhold and some others at the register share the same feelings as them after all they are not black why should it off
end them
