I agree Marsha.

I understand people have a right to protest, but I do believe it's a little much to go to someone's home. Those poor neighbors.

I just want to say that it's unfortunate that so many people have this misconception about public employees. I choose to work in the public sector because I have a great passion for the community & the people that live here. I go above & beyond when I help customers, & try to prove to them that there are people in government that are really passionate about their job & take great pride in it. It's nice when people recognize that & appreciate the job that we do. I get paid under 38k & I have felt at times that I should work in the private sector where I could make more money for all the hours I put in, but the truth is that I love what I do. The only thing I don't love is that there are a lot of people taking some cheap shots at public employees lately; some even tell it to our faces when they come in and we all have to take it with a smile. I have a family and struggle just like the rest of you, I pay taxes, I have the same complaints about the pot holes & so on & so forth. I realize people don't want to pay more taxes but I just don't see a lot of cuts you can make with the City budget that would allow the same level of services to continue. We have been making cuts for years now & leaving positions go unfilled. In the end, what the Council decides is best for the City, we will have to live with even if that includes some of us losing our jobs. All I can do is prepare for the worst & pray for the best.
Happy Holidays to all of you...(even if we have different views).
