Alderman Meyer has started his campaign, sending D1 the information to get on their website. He also has a blog that is going to officially open on Monday. There are some
interesting posts already there, but some of the links don’t work yet. I found the Adler post interesting. If this remodel really did cost us $1.3 million a running foot; did we get our moneys worth? You can look over his
blog at- http://keithmeyer3rdward.typepad.com/my_weblog/
We have the information from one of the links that don’t work and find it telling in many ways. It points to the real reason Mary Thee was treated the way she was. It also
did nothing to change my mind on the then Mayor, Charlie Brooke. After being advised by Thee not to put the contract renewal up for vote without changes that could save us taxpayers many thousands of dollars, he and others ignored her. Even though we couldn’t find minutes of the meeting from December of 2,002, we all know it did pass.
Thee found at least 17 problems with the paper. Some of which were termination severance language, voluntary resignation language, the fact that with the original paper the City Administrator could only be terminated by a felony conviction, no set amount on severance pay, no cap on salary, money for a car, sick days, and reimbursable cost 3 times the first agreement. But it passed, and Alderman Meyer was ‘an againster’ for asking questions that could have saved us thousands of dollars.
So it would appear the reason Malin hasn’t been fired is because they can’t. So Alderman Meyer is challenged at every turn, Thee now works for the County, lawsuits against the City and its personnel abound, and Malin knows he can’t be fired. To our knowledge he hasn’t been convicted of a felony.
