Burrell Is Starting His Vote Buying Jobs Program

Masterful plan there Burrell! Let's take 800 employees and dump them on the pension, and then re-hire 500 more.

In the meantime, the City of Dunwoody is operating within budget and has surplus cash.



Politicians; enough to make you puke.

Getting rid of the CEO position.

Six months ago the commissioners were discussing abandoning the CEO position. Vernon gave a talk to DeKalb BOC a little later supporting the CEO form of government and the commissioners all backed off dumping the CEO form of government.
What did Vern say?, and why did the BOC back off?
Its so obvious that the position does not work. Ellis is an intelligent man, appears to be less corrupt than Vern, but is a big-government guy that like our so-called leaders in DC, does not know how to quit feeding at the pork trough. What ever happened to fiscal conservatism in county government? One of the reasons DeKalb was so great years ago.

DeKalb should dump the CEO's office and personnel and hire a county manager.

It doesn't help that the BOC is clueless on how to run a local government with a low cash flow. But at least they know the citizens do not want a tax hike.

Later mates! Retirement is COOL! Pretty soon I am going to start posting like Ron Burgandy. (well, not really) We are to damn serious around here and half of you police guys are out for each others blood or jobs.

LoFlyer - saying Ellis is less corrupt than Vermin is not saying much. I use to think the same thing, but not so much any more....

Well now Lo, that would be a great loss. You're a good man. Have enjoyed your insight and perspective, and while I wish you the best in your happy retirement, would hate to see you turn inane (or possibly insane).
P.S. Where's Ethel's husband????

Anon4, I appreciate that! What I will do is start posting some links I find interesting or funny.

It has been a real pleasure working with all of you. In my 25 years with the county and interacting with most of the county employees I think I only found maybe 10 employees that were non-cooperative and for that I am truly grateful. You are a great bunch of guys and I wish y'all the very best.
Look out for each other, and keep us informed as to whats going on. Being retired frees me from the intimidation of management and I will go down there and face the BOC and try to force some common-sense into them.

The very best of luck, mates!

Little Vernon has a lot of friends that probably need a good easy job in his office or administration. You have to wonder where some of these people come from.

If the commissioners let him replace all these positions, we are headed to the end.

The study found over 900 jobs to eliminate. They paid a price for the study only not to use it.

This is the same as Vernon in office, if its not what he wanted then they toss it.
