According to yesterday's Talespin, Councilpersons Dunne and Collier engaged in a bit of hi-tech back and forth over last weeks resolutions.
Dunne e-mailed a variety of people indicating that by tabling rather than referring Resolutions 1 and 2, Collier essentially stalled the process for bringing the CDBG money 'in-house' (currently it is 'out-house').
Collier then referred Dunne to the "Am Not, You Are" provision in Roberts Rules of Order (Chapter IIV, Sec 2). Dunne responded by invoking the "I'm Rubber You're Glue" motion.
Collier, safely ensconced behind her computer, also told Dunne to stop hiding behind his computer.
Our condolences go out to the Madden and Jimino families. John sounded like a decent man.
HARRY WANTS THE POOR OUT OF TROY
Ever notice that Republicans need a scapegoat? Their scapegoat DeJour lately is public housing.
In a speech at RPI, Harry admitted that he wants to reduce Public Housing by 50%. Where everyone will go is your guess.
He has a point and it's a good one. With all the great jobs flooding Troy, there's no reason why anyone should be using public housing. Especially those damn seniors.
The best line was, "Public housing is supposed to be a temporary phase in someone's life and not a permanent way of living," Tutunjian said. "That's what we've got to move back toward."
You have to love these politicians that leach off the tax payers lecturing other people about leaching off the tax payers.
Home ownership is grand but how many people in Public Housing can qualify for a mortgage and pay Troy taxes, especially after all of Harry's tax hikes?
