State lawmakers want to give themselves a raise? The News should do our community a favor and write an article about how to start a recall to remove these people from Albany. We have got to reform our system, now.
There is no other job in which employees can vote themselves a raise, especially when the ship is going down. My wages are frozen and my city and county are bankrupt. I, too, am a civil servant, but our legislators in Albany are only serving themselves.
We realize now what needs to be done. Eliminate duplication of services at the city and county level, reform Medicaid at the state level and hold a recall election. New York State and Erie County need a control board also. Boy, they've got some nerve.
