Hands In The Cookie Jar

12Apr09

While the rest of us struggle through this economy and cut back in order to make our mortgage payments and pay our taxes, take heart! There are people who are doing exceptionally well. In fact they hardly have to do anything at all in order to succeed.

Who are they you ask? Why, anyone that has contributed to Miron’s campaign of course.

Link to Kent Miller’s pay

Note: In addition to the $64,356 Miller was paid in 2008 there is another $22,403 he was paid as a RR supervisor of a $30,325 clerk. That is a grand total $86,759 for Treasurer of the Democratic Town Committee.

Link to Berchem Moses and Devlin’s pay

Note: The $677,872* was only the amount paid as of Dec 31, 2008. We do not know what BMD will bill in 2009 yet.

But let us remember Miron’s campaign slogan: Wages freezes for everyone (else)!

*$450,000 was the total amount of salaries & legal fees approved by the Council. We wonder which departments gave up $217,872 to Berchem Moses & Devlin.

    Update:

    3 more unions line up for Miron
    By Richard Weizel

    STRATFORD — In an effort to keep his election year “no tax increase” pledge, Mayor James R. Mironsaid Monday night the town’s three smallest bargaining units — clerical workers, supervisors and dispatchers — had agreed to extend contracts for another year without cost of living raises.

    Miron said the 3-year contracts for the unions were set to expire June 30, and that annual “step increases” will still take effect for some workers.

    “Line up”? As in firing squad? Are there any “supervisors” left? Didn’t Miron fire 6 of them including the president and vice president? Leave it to Killeen to cave in first. The “supervisors” don’t even have a contract to extend.

    We also suppose that none of the clerical workers wanted to take Gina Connors place counting parking receipts and work under Kent Miller.

    And which workers will get those “step increases” (how is that not a raise?)? Let’s see…Dave Killeen maybe?

    Jez, you may want to contact bollicks to find out who else has hit this jackpot–it will make you and everyone else want to puke when you find out…..

    nnanerak,

    Something tells me that you already know…

  5. 5 1george1

    I know something none of you know!!!

    I know something none of you know!!!

    I know something none of you know!!!

    I know something none of you know!!!

    I know something none of you know!!!

    When the time is right
    – You will have BIG SMILES
    – Your knowledge might actually contribute something
    to the Town, people and businesses in Town, and your
    prime objectives.

    It depends if you want to play?

    Or NOT?

  6. 6 jezebel282

    George,

    An invitation to play with you is at the same time interesting and scary.

  7. 7 bollicks

    mmmm, ask me what? im lost here

  8. 8 jezebel282

    Bollicks,

    Beats me.

    Nnanerak thinks you know something about something.

  9. 9 sudds

    Hmm… don’t ask me how… but I have a sneaking suspicion that George knows something that none of know!!!

    Note: if it involves alien anal-probes… I’d prefer to NOT know!!!

  10. 10 jezebel282

    Sudds,

    Thank you so much for that image.

  11. 11 ronmoreau

    George, This should be interesting. What are the rules ?

  12. 12 jezebel282

    Ron,

    “What are the rules ?”

    Oh no!

    First you have to bring a 750′ roll of heavy duty tin foil……

  13. 13 ronmoreau

    Jez
    I don’t mine sticking my neck out. But not to far.

  14. 14 1george1

    I know something none of you know!!!

    If I told you ….
    Then you would know.

    Sorry to disappoint Sudds, but answer is “NO”

    Ron – Simple Rules – When the TIME is RIGHT,
    each of you can make an informed decision.

    Maybe there is room to invest in Tin Foil & Meds.
    Based on number of references from bloggers,
    they have replace Duct Tape…
    (No to the video tape) 🙂

    Nnanerak indicates he/she knows who Bollicks is?
    Bollicks wonders what the heck Nnan thinks Bollicks knows?
    Jeze stirring the pot?

    Anyone drive by Bally’s / Home Depot / FRog Pond lane?
    Bally’s parking lot had a bunchof cars in it about 4:00 pm 4/15.

    “Sorry to disappoint Sudds, but answer is “NO””

    Disappoint??? Sorry to burst your bubble Georgie-Boy… but your anal cavity being probed by aliens is one of the LAST topics that I would ever want to discuss!!!
    (sidenote: enjoy your lunch everyone!!!)

    “I know something none of you know!!!
    If I told you ….
    Then you would know.”

    I’m guessing that you got an “F” in the “plays well with others” section of your report card in school!!!

    “Ron – Simple Rules – When the TIME is RIGHT,
    each of you can make an informed decision.”

    Nothing says “I’m a better mayoral choice than Miron” than a little Facism!!!

    Bollicks- anyone you know and dislike getting paid as a consultant these days by the town???????? There is more than one, but one has been the subject of lots of dirty dealing recently…looking for confirmation, that is all.

  17. 17 nnanerak

    George- I have no idea who Bollicks is. What I do know is that Bollicks shares similar credible information on occassion that I know, so it seemed like a reasonable place to confirm some info. You definately read way too much into things alot of the time. Sorry if I disappointed you.

  18. 18 jezebel282

    nnanerak,

    Let’s see…it couldn’t be Kent Miller. We already know about him.

    Tolomeo? No..his hatchet job was done.

    Could it be Joe Loschi…nah…that would be just CRAZY.

  19. 19 1george1

    Nnan,
    Thanks for the FYI and correction.

    PCS,
    I am still waiting for you to tear apart my idea, which has
    only a portion of Backer’s original idea) on why an building an
    expensive commuter garage that I believe is further away
    than AVCO or SHAKESPEARE opening … is a better plan than
    working out a parking deal for at least 200 to 400 parking
    spaces that are already paved near movie theater and parts
    of Shaw’s / Home Depot / Bank parking losts.

    While it may read as though I am taunting you – is the object
    to get commuter parking relief A.S.A.P.
    or
    simply being right…

    Why not do both…?

    I believe the garage was supposed to be 600 slots, with a waiting
    list of 1000 for those 600 slots…

    Hey … work out a deal for 400 existing paved parking spots …
    and the waiting list goes down to 600 for the garage or flexibility,
    which happens to match garage’s projected capacity…

    Too logical…


    Sudds, did you sell your GE yet and take 50 % profit on your money
    within a month, or are you letting it ride?

    What are your preoccupations with
    ANAL CAVITIES?
    ALIENS?

    Only GREEN MEN I have ever seen are on MARCH 17th.
    Only ANAL .. I have ever seen have passed the BAR…
    or greedily guzzle from the public trough …

  20. 20 nnanerak

    No Jez, that is not who I was thinking of, that one has been confirmed a long time ago.

  21. 21 1george1

    Any hints Nnan?

    At least I gave hints..

    They flew past Sudds.

  22. 22 jezebel282

    nnan,

    “No Jez, that is not who I was thinking of, that one has been confirmed a long time ago.”

    “but one has been the subject of lots of dirty dealing recently”

    Geeze, that’s almost everyone in Town Hall. Any way to narrow it down?

  23. 23 1george1

    “but one has been the subject of lots of dirty dealing recently”

    ????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????
    dirty dealing?
