A Man Without A Party.
Hugo Chavez? No Commissioner of Public Works Skip Scirocco. Seems since the defeat of his co-conspirators in the DFC, Scirocco is having a hard time fitting in with his former cohorts in the City Republican Party. Scirocco got his panties in a bunch at the last Saratoga Springs Republican Committee meeting when he led a failed attempt to oust the highly successful and popular Committee Chairman John Herrick. Scirocco’s plan failed of course and only served to further alienate him from the rank and file members of the Committee. Scirocco is rapidly finding himself a man without friends as DPW is finally realizing that layoffs are coming and coming hard in spite of the promises made during the election by Scirocco. Morale is at an all time low in the dept. as three drivers have pled guilty to DWI charges and they find themselves under increasing criticism from a public fed up with the mismanagement of their superiors and constant cost over runs in Scirocco's budgets. DPW can be little more than an angry mob when fueled with enough alcohol and more and more of that anger is being focused on Scirocco
