I was thinking today that unless Scirocco succumbs to an undiagnosed cranial subdural hematoma from a blow to the back of the head from a manila envelope, he will be Commissioner of Public Works for two more years. What does that mean for
He doesn’t give a dam about the public, the rank and file or the city he’s called home. What does he care about? Himself, Donna Buckleys return, “Big Deal” O’Neill and getting son Mark a job. We haven’t had snow for weeks DPW trucks roam our city streets in a seemingly endless parade of highly expensive trucks searching for the cities last discarded CHRISTMAS TREE. Our infrastructure deteriorates and Scirocco doesn’t care. I will go a step further and say he wants it to deteriorate. Yes that’s correct so I will repeat it.
SCIROCCO WANTS OUR CITIES INFRASTRUCTURE TO DETERIORATE.
All in a ill planned attempt to embarrass the Council, shifting all blame to them and offering no solution except for massive infusions of cash and hiring new personal. I did not say rehiring of laid off personal purposely. Scirocco will want to hire his own hand picked politically reliable toadies and extended family members. His protests to the Council that the layoffs and budget cuts will lead to a massive reduction in services is becoming a self fulfilling prophecy. There is no reason for Scirocco to even try to manage his department. He wants the public and Broadway businesses to suffer. That’s the only way to teach those cheap bastards along with the public a fucking lesson.
Tim Cogan will do what he can but Scirocco will use him as a scapegoat. Timmy will quickly grow tired of being the new whipping boy; no amount of money is worth that. This will open the door for some political hack to move in and use the position to lobby for more funding. What Scirocco doesn’t understand is, there is no money and its going to get worse not better. This will undoubtedly be Scirocco last two years in office and lets hope we can minimize the amount of damage he can do.
