Dick Rosenbaum Nailed It

Dick Rosenbaum'a Guest Opinion on Oct. 25, 2006, hit the nail on the head. Our city council has sold us down the river by negotiating an unfunded contract with the city employees. The pension plan in particular is an affront to the rest of us who will never have the luxury of such a plan and yet must fund it for them. The city's financial woes should certainly made it clear that signing off on this level of compensation was absurd in the ridiculous. If we cannot undo what's been done, for heaven's sake, it must be a litmus test next election for anyone who wishses to represent us on the council. Those who supported this must be OUT!

I am not a Rosenbaum fan, but he had it this time.
