“Oh Crap!” – Munson

There was a funny moment in the informational meeting on Monday (not at the beginning chatter, they have wised up and figured out to edit that part out).

Councilor Brown suggested after hearing complaints from several citizens about city employee pay increases that the HR department come and explain how many employees got a more than standard pay increase.

Munson got all worked up when Litz suggested they come to next week’s info meeting and give us the numbers. Munson says, (paraphrasing) “Uh, well, uh, that has to do with Union contracts, and we really shouldn’t, uh, get involved with that. (plop, plop)”

Obviously Munson was trying to deflect the testimony because he damn well knows that the unions only got standard raises and what Brown was referring to was non-union department heads who got the major raises.

After Munson’s pants crapping statement, Litz basically tells him, too-bad too-sad, and says the testimony will be scheduled for next Monday.

We’ll see what kind of excuses arise between now and then.

It’s about time someone began holding elected officials’ feet to the fire…
So to speak…

Yeah, Litz is the Council Chair, and he pretty much shut down Munson in about 4 seconds, it was beautiful, then he likes, “Let’s move along”.
