We know Paul slightly. We have been making inquiries as to WHAT are your ideas, plans and visions for New Albany.
We know he is for a better government in New Albany. We also know he favors a City Court so the monies for tickets issued by the Police do not go to Indy. We also know taxpayers does not trust England to do this thing because we felt Shane Gibson would be in the midst of same. But, if the monies saved by doing the City Court will shave the Police and Fire from taking 85% plus from the General Fund (and only under him not England), we have to listen.
Unions, both fire and police, have got to concede something. As my father said (a life long union member and us being die hard union people), unions got too greedy and did their selves in. Time for the police and fire to make concessions. Times are too hard for the average joe blow, but I don't know they recognize the ramifications if they don't.
Yes, Etheridge is right in getting rid of our Deputy Mayor (we feel). Unnecessary position to say the least.
But, what else will be Paul's platform? We look forward to hearing more and knowing his words are true and will be acted upon.
