Told ya so, told ya so, told ya so!

3 Jun

Wow, look! The Enterprise Record is acting like a newspaper! Now, that’s news!

Next Tuesday night, council will offer clerk Debbie Presson a 2 percent raise, to $142,000/year, to get her to pay 3 percent of her pension.

City mangler Mark Orme just cut himself a similar deal.

It’s just a ball ‘o confusion! You sure can’t hide!


Maybe now we’ll get more bounce to the ounce?


This is getting pretty funky!

    Yup, the ship is taking on more water…so…raises all the way around! They’re doing such a bang up job!

    Mark my word, these pigs will bleed the taxpayers white.

    This is just the beginning. These pensions are a disaster and will blow up, and our rulers will go on an orgy of tax increases. It’s already happening. Just look at the garbage tax increase (which our filthy politicians won’t call a tax increase) and at the state level the fuel and car tax increases. Much worse to come, guarantee it.

      Thanks Bob good to hear from you. We need to watch Fillmer and her proposal – is she asking employees or taxpayers to pay more? And then there’s Morgan trying to raise campaign funding limits – he says this is a free speech issue – does he listen better if you give him a lot of money? Stay tuned!

        Thanks for posting the link to that article. I don’t pay much attention to the ER or any of the lamestream media these days. That article stated

        This year, the general fund brought in around $49 million, most of that through sales tax, property tax, utility taxes and the transient occupancy taxes paid at hotels. Half of that goes to Chico police salaries and benefits, and about a quarter to those of Chico’s firefighters.

        If that’s true is it any surprise that the roads, parks and everything else in this little city is going to sh*t? By the time you factor in all the money spent on cops, “firefighters” then throw in the all the money spent on the city bureaucrats that’s probably about 90% of all the tax money. And with these pension liabilities going through the roof it’s going to be even worse.

        This situation is completely absurd.

        Yes, absurd, bizarre, surreal and absolutely nuts.

        At the rate the pension liabilities are going it won’t be long before the entire budget is spent on cops, “firemen,” and bureaucrat salaries, benefits and pensions and there will be nothing left for anything else.

      • Juanita Sumner June 4, 2017 at 4:35 am #

        There is nothing left. I believe our city is in collapse. They’re just sitting down there collecting salaries and benefits, negotiating better contracts for themselves, and letting our town go to shit.

        How much longer you think before Orme and Constantin announce they’re leaving? I think Constantin would already be gone – I had a spate of searches for him, that usually means he’s been looking for a job. But I think his professional reputation is garbage and he just can’t get another job, or he would have left a couple of years ago. He told a gathering of Tea Party Patriots that he was just here temporarily to straighten out our finances, that he would leave the job within a couple of years, and that we’d be able to pay the his replacement less.

        Hah hah, remember the Tea Party Patriots! what a joke that was!

    They are wringing their hands trying to figure out how to deal with the increased pension costs. I guess it hasn’t occurred to them to CUT EMPLOYEE COMPENSATION or REDUCE STAFF !!!!

    • Juanita Sumner June 4, 2017 at 4:22 am #

      Yes, cut employee compensation – ALL EMPLOYEES – including management. Including Debbie Presson.

      They’ve already reduced the working staff to give management raises. Mark Orme just got a raise too.

  3. bob June 9, 2017 at 8:46 pm #

    Please tell me why it is necessary to give these bureaucrats raises so they can pay a small fraction of their pensions?

    And why is it that there is always plenty of money to give bureaucrats and other government employees raises but never enough money to fix the roads? Have you driven out by the 20th St Mall lately, geez. And to think that there are many roads in Chico even worse.

    • Juanita Sumner June 10, 2017 at 4:21 am #

      The only explanation I have is greed. I’m so disgusted, I can’t talk to these people anymore, the hatred is going to start bleeding through my teeth.
