Dang, now what?

WHAT! This is my home town. I'm pretty sure its a way to raise revenue, as it's dealing with budget woes. Layoff 75 police officers and others and still no contract. He has alone issued parking tickets or had the police do so when he noticed illegal parking during a Sunday church mass/service(but allowed on Sunday). He's not well liked in some circles and a recall vote has been issued. He's challenged that and really only has a few months left in office. I hope he doesn't decide to run. Quite frankly, he has been an embarrassment over the yrs. and I don't see why he got voted in. Some voters say, he a good cheerleader for the city, but wasn't the vote for a mayor not a cheerleader. The city has gone "red light" enforcement big time and that's more for revenue, I thought safety, come on. He wants to raise trash fees, but the taxes already do that, "double taxes?". He wants good service for the city but seems to step on so many toes to get it done. It also amazing his wife got a high paying private area job once he was elected, a connection? -----Willy Happy

Can't he be forcibly removed due to "diminished capacity"?

There must be some way to more quickly deal with a political leader gone "rogue".

Drive way UPDATE

A city streets, harbor and bridges commissioner was the one that ticketed cars parked on their driveways. Police in such cases wouldn't have ticketed as they consider gravel, as paved. The commissioner has the authority to ticket when parked truck/car block city vehicles to do their appointed jobs/tasks such a snow plowing. IMHO, she shouldn't ticketed anyone as these clearly in the providence of police duties and they were not in way of any city vehicles. Council person of that district is trying to resint the tickets. Also, it should be noted that commissioner was "surly" with the property owners as to being there. -----Willy Happy
