  05/06/02  The Pay Referendum NO vote:

Tempers are Hot, mine is no exception.  Any way you look at the situation regarding the 67% NO vote the word 'pathetic' keeps coming to mind. 

It's pathetic that so few people voted. I was voter number 184 in a precinct that has over 2000 registered voters-pathetic.

We'll see if our new mayor, and the council are serious about 'smart' pay for our public safety personnel, and fight to repeal the pay parity law.  However, our City government, and its' overall leadership skills-pathetic.

The selfish City workers whining about the 17% pay increase, and they get none-pathetic.

The article that I read in 'undergroundcop.com' stating that all 911 calls should be responded to by driving the speed limit to the call, and finishing all reports before being available for another call-pathetic.

The leadership of the police, and fire, that turned away volunteers who wanted to help them 'win' the referendum,-pathetic. 

What we can clearly see from Saturday's vote is that the citizens of Dallas have very little confidence in Chief Bolton, and his command staff. Also, like the rest of the nation voters in Dallas could really care less about what's happening in the 'real' world.

I voted 'yes' for the pay raise, and hope that this city of ours will wake up, and decide not to be so damn pathetic.

  Ward politics is the Devil's key to the soul of the city council.  It is how some council members got themselves in trouble in the past.  It is the bait that will get others in trouble in the future. 4/6/8
