The Mayor took a raise, and the world is coming to an end!
The real problem isn't the raise and everyone knows it. The problem is that this republican got a raise. Let's not let any other facts get in the way of one fact, he is Joe Maturo. McCann can't stand him and the democratic leadership will say anything to discredit him. It really sticks in their collective craw that he's in office.
It matters not how he manages town accounts and balances the budget. In fact it doesn't matter how many businesses he brings into our town or how many positive accomplishments he can take credit for. The only thing that matters is he's republican and he's Joe Maturo. Period.
So unless he is willing to change his name and party affiliation, he will be taunted for every fart he cuts. Oh but wait, republican Joe Maturo keeps getting elected. So why should he change a thing? He keeps getting re-elected because those who count, the voters say Yes to republican Joe Maturo. Thankfully they see through all the ridiculous rhetoric. The voters love republican Joe Maturo. They keep voting for him because they trust him with their money. So keep trying to denigrate the man, all you sore losing "leaders" of democrats and nay saying chinless twits, and we will continue to re-elect republican Joe Maturo.
Oh and by the way, I got your boots so here's a pair you can start lickin.
