City Council announces promotions; MY ASS
The local rag the Saratogain in today’s addition carried a banner headline followed by an article penned by Kim lackey Andrew Bernstein which proudly announced “City Council announces promotions.”
BULLSHIT: Once again Bernstein conspired with his political mentor about how to paint demigod Kim in the most favorable light, the council promoted no one. Ron Kim in the last hours of his reign of terror in city government is passing out promotions and medals like Hitler did in his bunker in April 45. Mind you I am not criticizing his choices but one could make the case that the Public Safety departments are two brass heavy, I am condemning the method he employed. Using absolute authority and consulting no one unless he asked buddy Bernstein to weigh in, he unilaterally in the remaining hours of his job handed out promotions like candy on Halloween. These decisions made by a bitter and unstable man will have ramifications for Public Safety for decades. Ron Kim also said he will hold a swearing-in ceremony for the newly-promoted supervisors at noon Thursday literally in the last twelve hours I’ll be in office. Many will argue he did this to save jobs. Again I say BULLSHIT. Come June when Kim is but a bad memory and there is no million and a half in parking revenue these same people will be laid off AGAIN
RON KIM KNOWS THAT.
If Ron Kim wasn’t so dangerous his antics would be amusing, but remember this is the chief law enforcement officer in the city who threatens opponents in vulgar and crass displays of anger in front of innocent women and children whose only crime is to be in the library when Kim forgot his antipsychotic medication. Well just to give you an idea of his hypocrisy please see this exchange of e-mails in which he encourages Commissioner of Public Works Skip Scirocco to press charges against City Attorney Joe Scala for assault and battery for being hit by an envelope. This would be funny if it wasn’t so sad
But Kim is running out of time and unless he plans to barricade himself in his office for a last stand, Thursday will be his last Hurrah. Bernstein his pet reporter has also been relegated to covering local badminton tournaments. So see you in the peanut gallery Ron, I’ll save you a spot right next to me. But remember I got a new toy for Christmas a voice recording pen so watch what you say.
