And the winner is Ken Ivins for the board of the Saratoga Housing Authority.
I know many of you will bitch and moan but I like Ivins. He was always an outspoken critic of city employees’ salaries and benefits. I can only assume that he is appalled by Executive Director Ed Spychalski’s annual salary and contract.
In other Council news leaders members of the city’s business community including the DBA and the chamber of commerce took Commissioner of Public Safety Chris Mathiesen to task for continuing to paint the city as violent and dangerous. Citing a story in the Wall Street Journal HERE
Later Commissioner of Accounts John Franck defended Mathiesen, calling the city a violent hell hole.
Note to Downtown business owners Mathiesen has the votes with Franck and Madagan on board.
Maybe you should start planning for the next election to undue some of the damage coming down the pike.
