Re: “Flame War

It is unconscionable that our elected public officials are hiding behind their well-paid lawyer and public relations firm. Our firefighters have legitimate and grievous complaints against Bonano and Saunders. Their radio communication is laughable. Their onboard computers are inoperable. Their lifesaving air-packs are unserviced. 24 firefighters who did not return after Katrina have never been replaced jeopardizing the whole community. Instead, unscheduled overtime has been doled out like candy resulting in skewed salary totals. Before Katrina, rarely was unscheduled overtime needed or given. Because of the manpower shortage and piss-poor management since Katrina, this has changed. And the double whammy is that this overtime payment is being used against the very guys who are pulling more than their weight to keep a Class 1 rating. They did not ask for this and would prefer to have the 24 long overdue positions filled (not counting the personnel positions needed to man the new station).

I hesitate to call the things I have heard come out of Landry's mouth "misleading". In my book, they are deliberate lies meant to deceive the public for the benefit of a paying client called the Jefferson Parish Council. Summary ordinance 22648 must be defeated. Are you listening, Councilmen?
