Council no-shows

From the Daily News:

If the 51 members of the City Council were paid based on attendance, all but two would find themselves in a financial crunch.

Thirteen would lose one-quarter or more of their $112,500 salary for compiling attendance records below 75% last year, records obtained by the Daily News show.

Five scored below 72%, including perennial no-show leader Maria Baez (D-Bronx), who had a 47.5% attendance rate, missing 89 of her assigned hearings and sessions.

I've got pictures of these Council assholes on golf courses (along with Federal and State elected officials). The photos were taken on weekdays when most of you are working. But who cares? You keep electing these schmucks.

So post the pics - on your own blog or forward to the Crapper. Do you sleep with them under your pillow?

They're far too busy attending meetings with their developer friends.

Melinda Katz, no doubt, has quite a hefty extra income moonlighting for her builder partners.

Now what were their names?

Oh...you look 'em up for yourself at the Board of Elections...on line...it's easy!

Devious, lazy, stupid elected council members who were elected by stupid, lazy, devious voters who have no idea of how to protect their own interests.

As long as stupidity prevails (oh! yeah! Commissar Death and Taxes wants total control of the schools to see that the stupidity continues), the stupid voters will keep re-electing these parasites.

Dump them ALL on Tuesday, November 3. Verify now that your voter registration is current. Then dump them all.

Tony Avella...100% attendance record and turns down lulus. A true man of the people.

TONY AVELLA FOR MAYOR

Had to give a shout out!

Agreed!

There will be extra large political wastebaskets provided in each neighborhood the second Tuesday in November.

You can properly dispose of your do nothing "representatives" at the polls.

DO IT... or continue to get reamed by the clubhouse!

Who does this borough belong to anyway...you or Joe Crowley
and his hole in the wall gang?

Get up on your hind legs and start biting you sleepy heads and be sure to VOTE SMART!

Do you want to change things or just get some more of the same?

Only members who don't know how a vote is going to go down need to appear.

I know a guy who once got himself elected as president of the (old) school board by making sure that some key people were absent that day. Only problem was that he could never miss a meeting after pulling that stunt.

Agree with Taxpayer and fire ALL incumbents.
