Increased salaries for staff.
And now...a bike coordinator?
These are but a few of the bone-headed moves by Omaha's Mayor Jim Suttle.
And the Bike Man is hired just as Ron Penzkowski (we're guessing he'll go back to his real name now) is canned? No idea if one has anything to do with the other.
Here's the thing on the Bicycle Czar: His salary came from "other sources" right? Hmm, well, there is still federal tax money involved there, so at the very least, EVERYONE is still paying.
But beyond that, while generally we are in favor of building up the city in new and different ways...who is going to pay for all these innovative Bike Czar ideas?
New bike lanes? Improved side streets? New trails? Are any of those items free?
And are the roads paved?
This is the sort of thing that will actually help MayorSuttleRecall.com.
Remember the Obama-Terry voter?
Remember Democrat Richard Carter?
Well, the Lee Terry campaign has a new Democrat on their team, this time new Co-Chair Rita Hejkal.
Rita is a Pro-Life Democrat who is well known in the pro-life community.
“I will work hard to spread the message throughout the Second District that pro-life
voters should support Lee Terry for Congress,” Hejkal said. “Tom White’s support
for Obamacare, which provides taxpayer funding of abortion, is just one of his
disqualifications for public office.”Another shot across the bow.
Hey Don Walton! Thanks for the props, but hey, Street Sweeper isn't "elusive"!
"Elusive" is when you can't find, say, a senior Senator for a Town Hall meeting...
