Charlotte City Council Members Quietly Add Personal Assistants To 2019 Budget

Charlotte City Council Members are so stressed out and over worked that they are requesting individual personal assistants to help with their voice mail and manage their email accounts.

The cost to you, the taxpayer is 3/4 of a million dollars next year.


Adding 7 staff members increases next year's budget by $733,617.00 but that's on top of the staff increase last year that doubled the support staff from 2017.

Just so out of touch:

Over the last 5 years Charlotte City GuvCo has been singularly living in a "Socialcentic" world where everything they do is driven by a social agenda.

From Tranny Potties and Same Sex Partner Benefits to Give-Away Housing.

But they are so caught up with social justice and equality that they have completely forgotten the basics running a city. Things as simple as Police and fixing pot holes!

Their are six potholes that slam, rock, jam, shake, jar and hammer my car between my driveway and @HarrisTeeter 1.5 miles away. My annual donation to Mecklenburg County and the City of Charlotte is north of 25k yet I only see a CMPD Officer in my neighborhood only about 3 times a year!

The median along the way to that Harris Teeter looks like crap the grass isn’t cut and trash is omnipresent except where my $1,000 a year HOA fee pays to maintain the city property.

The curb along Rea Road at Piper Station Drive
So it really grinds my gears when  Charlotte City Council tries to quietly slide under the door a 3/4 million dollar budget item for personal assistants to help them with their part time jobs!

Braxton Winston.... Number one proposal was to make council a full time job with a nice salary and benefits. So who is really surprised. Just another one wanting to suckle of the government tit.

Braxton Winston is an utter disappointment and failure. Apparently he only yearned for the spotlight and all of the Civil Rights, transparency, equity, accountability and causing change he talked about in his campaign were only talk to install himself in this empty shell of an office for his own benefit. He does nothing. He talks about all of it but does nothing. I'm tired of hearing his "thoughts and beliefs about..... x ......"

Really, go away. And take the entire rest of Council and the Mayor with you. Worthless--and worse than that, a continuously increasing drain destroying Charlotte.

Yet many across the city are losing their jobs on or before July 1 due to “restructuring.” INCLUDING ME. CedarPost, tell me how to email you directly and I’ll send you the Dear John letter since I can’t attach it here.

Cedar - please call Transportation to report pot holes. You can try 704-336-4119, M-F 9-5.
We cannot fix that which is not known to us; thanks for your service and good citizenship in making us aware.

Braxton Winston is just a small piece of the shit cake. Have you looked at our brass?? These people are freaks! Look at the academy and their recruits! This place is getting worse everyday. Cops will have dread locks soon, and tats on their necks. The CMPD badge is just a piece of tin...


I would never trust a cop I didn't know on my property.

This is just the very tip of the fuckberg that has become Charlotte City Council. This libtarded jackasses are looking to make Charlotte North Carolina's first sanctuary city with free stuff for everyone.

Forget applying $700k affordable housing problems, when you can hire your church friends and neighbors to answer your emails for a part time job! Our town has gone nuts. Hell put the $700K towards early childcare or something productive instead of creating more Govco "jobs".
Our "leaders" obviously don't care about fixing the problems they have caused.

The city has hired their cronies for decades to do stupid jobs, that a chimp could do. Most office employees for the city are chimps and can't change a light bulb. This place is not safe to live or work in.

Its a freaking part-time job and they doubled the staff last year so WTF! Cedar is right how about just trying to get the basics right.

Guys, we are talking about a man that was dancing in the street with his shirt off. We are talking about a woman that thinks 9/11 didn't happen. How can any city employee want to keep their job? Who would ever want to be these people's personal assistance anyways? (zoo keeper)

Braxton is now blaming gentrification for Charlotte's homicide rate. That's hysterical

What training is there for what is a crime and what is not a crime? please-serious question.
thanks

12:43: It is very complex.

Officer Arrest Training Protocol

1. Does the officer need an arrest for their monthly quota?
2. Are you a repeat offender?
3. Do you have a job?
4. Is the officer lazy yet?
5. What time is it on the officer's shift?
6. Is the officer about to go on break?
7. Did you actually break a NC law?
8. How do you treat the officer that you speak to?
9. Are you pretty?
10. Who do you know that works at the city?

perfect. thanks. If there's a more official PR version of the legal training, please chime in, too.

ANYONE HAVE AN UPDATE ON WHETHER VICKI FOSTER WILL LOSE HER JOB OVER THE THREAT TO DANCE ABOUT SEXUAL STATEMENTS?

Anonymous said...

Yayyy! A 2% raise! All that effort of going to city council...for a 2% raise! Good work guys!

So where is Foster working as a dancer? I can't see her making much in the way of tips but I'd rather my girls shower once and awhile.

So whats all this about Dance's micro penis???

Anonymous said...

Basically, Vicki was talking about Rob's penis at a ceramony and everyone heard her. She threatened Dance about complaining, so he is sueing the City becuase of her ghetto threat.

He felt scared when she threatened him with his career progress. He doesn't want to have to do another barbershop video.

I can't believe that you people have not figured this out yet. The command staff from Captain and above have drank the Kool-Aid, they have sold their souls, they are all in it for the money! They don't give one rat's ass about you or your family. Get that through your head now, and you may be able to swallow the shyt sandwich later.

Maybe Dominoes Pizza will fix those potholes. Not sure how it works but maybe you ask for that when you order a pizza....
