Never attribute to malice that which can be adequately explained by incompetence.

Good for you Herb!! You've been one of our Class A watchdogs for years. Keep at it. This bunch at City Hall will try to get by with just about anything- trouble is they don't even KNOW what they do may be Illegal. !! Total incompetency at City Hall. How do we 'clean house' - top down?

Thanks to Herb Borock. It would be very interesting to have an exit interview with the Auditor. Maybe by the newspaper?

Not social cues, ideology nor political power should hinder proper, legal process by city government and management.

Our city government is pulled many directions, and law must be its guide.

Otherwise we're left with a free for all.

Don't miss out on the discussion!
