Anything to be Mayor....... Cahill pandering to CSEA
Well, just when you thought the relationship between CSEA and Kingston Mayor James Sottile couldn't get any worse it has.... With CSEA Union Vice President Troy Ashdown saying that the city's chief Exec needs anger management and Sottile calling Union Leadership lazy and removing television sets from the sewer department, and maybe all departments. Richard Cahill sure didn't waste anytime in trying to capitalize on the issue calling the Mayor "vindictive" and calling him an embarrassment to the city. The only thing embarrassing is Cahill a.k.a. Mr. Conservative, trying to pander to the union. It's absolutely sickening, the worst part is CSEA seems to be buying into it. When push comes to shove, Sottile has always come through for CSEA, it would have been easy for Sottile to lay off a whole bunch of people over the years in order to keep taxes in check and silence his critics (like Cahill, who has called for a hiring freeze) but he didn't. Tell me again how Cahill plans to lower taxes 12% without cutting a single job.....it's not possible.
