Money

It's November 20th and this is traditionally the time of year for all kinds of layoff talk. In this comment thread we ask all of you to suggest ways in which the administration can operate this department more efficiently. List any practical ideas you may have that will save money, streamline operations and generally improve the department.

Administrators, your mission is to read these ideas and completely disregard them like usual utilize any valuable input because you're all doing such a great shitty job.

Dummy, you can't demote a merit Lt. to a merit Sgt. to fix $ issues and short staff issues. Dummy, do us all a favor and take a one way swim in the lake!.

Yes they can. They do what they want. Watch what happens when they make the chiefs Lt's you dummy.

Now that I finished my beer, here is a few more the first 24-25 of my ideas are on the other page:

25. Market the department. Make it attractive for contract policing. When a town comes to you make sure before you take your best shot that they are not using us to force their own unions back into line with wage concessions like Sauk Village did.

26. Contract detectives. Many towns do not need a F/T detective. Have one of our guys handle them and 1-2 other towns with the stipulation that if they run into a big case like a homicide they can draw additional resources from the unit. This will allow these towns to put more uniforms on the street rather than having them hide in an office. You'd be suprised how many towns want to get out of investigating stuff. Think of the Georgia/GBI model.

27. Same for ET's. We used to do so many more towns, like Des Plaines. Show them how we can do it cheaper and just as if not more professionally and they'll be glad to put their ET's back into the uniform.

28. The brass needs to be on the same page. Of the 4 deputy chiefs they are all cowering in their own little worlds and afraid of the next guy. Love or hate the Chicagoans that were here, this crap never happened. Holbrook needs to go. He has a pension and is buffing it up. He focuses on small petty stuff like his private gym down by the ET lab and the parking lot! I am not kidding you, and not the big picture. Move Smitty into the Chief job and either KR or JK into the FDC, dump MW and RF back into patrol as they are a major part of the problem.

29. We need our own PIO. It ain't Penny and it damned sure ain't that idiot they hired from the scum times Patterson either. It needs to be a sgt or lt that can put our spin on our stories.

30. Lock the front door during the day. Everyone comes in via the patrol desk. Get a phone answering computer. Fire that idiot woman that cant sit there for more than 20 minutes without leaving her post.

31. Everyone in the entire sheriff's department police/courts/corrections gets an email address. Time to throw out our fax machines. It is 2010 going on 2011. The time and money spent sending faxes is just insane.

32. DCSI is toast. Maybe keep swap but since dart does not want to put inmates out on EM unless a judge orders it and they dont want to do it either, it is done.

33. Recycling. This screams out to be privitized. They have recyclable goods like paper and plastic filling the hallways at 23rd/rockwell. It is no wonder they had a fire there.

34. Minority Gas Stations. Come on, seriously? Since when are these towelheads protected under WBE/MBE and the Citgo on 1st avenue by the square loaded with blacks isn't? These minority set asides are death to governments. I have to drive across 2 beats to get gas and pay 15-20 cents a gallon more than across the street? Jeez!

35. Pick up the outlying expressways. 53, the Edens, I55/I57 leaving Chicago, etc. All a great source of ticket revenue. Work a deal with the State to pick up these road miles (as the state is even more screwed up than we are) and do a model like Racine, Kenosha and Milwaukee Counties. We get revenue for ever 10-50 report ordered by an insurance company. There is bucks here.

36. We guard the County Board President. Send the Correctional Officer back to his tier. We should have the State's Attorney too like we used to.

37. No more giving away our jobs and areas to towns. We fight annexations. Don't give them a reason to annex because we cant do the job correctly.

38. Flame suit on. We might have to forgo the 8 1/2% that we got in arbitration, for a little while. Chicago and the State is doing furlough days. It looks bad in the media when we are gorging ourselves (and you know thats how the media will paint it).

39. 55 million for strip searches. Hell, it would have been cheaper to hire the TSA for this! 55 Million AFTER the LAST settlement? Think they'd learn??

Guys, we can fight this. I think the 21% is just Preckwinkle forcing the other elected officials back into line. Realistically it is 10-15%. Nevertheless it is still real money. The CCSPD did not cause these problems. Sloppy bloated government at the hands of the Toddler and this crap economy did. It seems like Stroger couldn't do a single thing correctly as per the media and the media poisons all of our citizens to think we all are a bunch of goofs. We just have to do our part and cooler minds should be able to meet halfway.

Oh, I forgot one...

35. Patrol handles their own felonies like we used to. ALL Felonies. This was a Robertson deal that caused our dicks to take over felony cases because John thought patrol was too stupid to do a minute sheet and a long form! This will free up our dicks to do better followups and close by file less cases.

Why don't we hire more retired Chicago Police Officers. We don't have anyone that already works in our department that could do those jobs. We can save alot of money by laying off our own and giving jobs to them. If we do lay off officers don't even think of giving them the option of going to work in the jail. We will save more money by laying them off and then hiring new people and train them to work in the jail. Don't even think about having a Captain in charge of the Division's in the jail. We really need the Superintendent's and Chief's because we all know that the Captains can't do the job.

Your first 150 ideas are all great. I especially love the parts where you take every job done by a dep, co or other law enforcement body else and fill it with sheriff's police officers. Those were great but it can't end there. Everyone else in this department needs to know how awesome the sheriff's police are! Every dep, co, lawyer, any other law enforcement agency should go fuck themselves. In fact, include every person on earth that's not a sworn member of the ccspd should just kill themselves RIGHT NOW! Let's have a pep rally for the ccspd. Start cheering! Let me hear you CC...SPD

I think the problem is nobody has any faith in T.D. If it was sheehan or ogrady they would be ready to brawl with prekwenkle. What is t.d going to do. Bring his barking Chihuahua to the board meetings. All jokes aside, everyone knows td wont go to bat for us. He neither has the balls or passion to fight for us. Does anyone really think he gives a shit if we get laid off. The 26th. st incident and OPR are an indication of true feelings towards us. You have to remember t.d is a true huffington post liberal. Those people hate the police.

And another thing you dont realize is precwinkle is a darling of the media even more than the fluff man. She is the hand picked media candidate and so called reformer.. If you really think fluffer is going to challenge her, your out of your mind. First off he would appear to be going against reform, and challenging an african american female. Could anyone really imagine the fluff man doing that. A guy that ordered deputies not to charge illegal alliens who viciously attacked them. I hate to say it but fluffer is going to sell us right down the river. Our only hope is he is worried that layoffs will make the dept unsafe. And because of that, something major will happen which would shed a negative light on him. Thats our only hope. If you really think that he is going to fight for us just out of concern for peoples jobs your living in lala-land! A narrassist is only thinking on how it will affect them, not you...

To the dumb ass that thinks that CCSPD should be expanding and taking over jobs that deps and Co's currently hold:

Why in the world would the cash-strapped county replace a dep or co making 60k a year for a po making 70k a year to do the same exact job?

Come back to the blog when you have some real ideas. Until then, send me a post card from fantasy land you moron.

Anonymous said...

Bravo!! Spoken as it should. I'm liking those 35 or 39 ideas-some old-some new-that all culminated into several posts in a row. Alot make sense and should be implemented.
There's alot of fat that can be trimmed from the CCSPD. All these D.C.'s, Commanders-I agree with a previous post-WTF kind of BS is that?
I personally don't care about the rest of the Sheriffs "Office" either, much less if I piss the Deps or C/O's off because of this post.
You know what your job entailed when you came aboard.
I feel that the Deps shoiuld be kept as far far away from the CCSPD as possible.
The CCSPD Academy should be back at Maybrook Square, back at the Police Department where it belongs-Triton is a joke, always has been a joke, always will be a joke and a scam hideout for major incompetence.
And still, I simply don't understand why blue Deps are driving around in Sheriff's Police marked squad cars when they are simply NOT Sheriff's Police Officers. Can they be locked up for impersonating the Police?!?
It will bite the administration one day-hopefully soon. And hard!
Liability has to be a factor.
And this is a ticking Time Bomb!
Deps and C/O's-I'm not sorry if I pissed you off-you are what you are, realize it and make the appropriate changes if you think you be happier somewhere else.
At the very least, take the Chicago Police test thats just around the corner. GTF out of the courts and jail!
Best wishes to you for a fulfilling, rewarding career.
Again, from somone who knows and cares.

Smitty, KR or MW, oh please...what supervisory experience do they have? and what about Bobby A.-whats up with his case?!? Out of sight/out of mind??

JK-same question about supervisory experience but as we all know-he's a good guy and with the proper grooming and more street experience would be a definite possibility. At least he cares about this place. He's a classy guy.
Bonnie B. she cares too despite being a bit naive. What a blessing over Waffle though...
RF-out the door! Then fumigate his car.

Reality Check. I had some moron CCSPD officer ask me "What are you deps making now 35-40K"
I answered "Actually i make 67k and most jail guards make more than you with O.t. He just gave me this dumbfounded look like mongoloid he is, and answered "REALLY"
I know it really irkes those who think they are the real police to know some of us make as much or more than them.
It was just shocking to me that some of those mongoloids in brown really think we make 35k.

I'm not in favor of firing people, however, I came from the boot camp and you havn't seen political hacks until you've worked there. Sheahan filled that place up with friends, neighbors, unqualified counselors, teachers and nurses. The boot camp, when I was there, was a dumping ground for a lot of people with clout. They had payroll spots filled for a few more captains than the boot camp had. I'm sure there are a few qualified people there but my experience wasn't to promising. The Drill Instructors mean well but are undermined by the liberal infested mind sets of the teachers and counselors.

The point of the entire idea about the boot camp as a training facility is getting rid of the waste and utilizing what we already have.

I hope more of you posters are thinking of ways to cut the budget.

I agree totally with the mandatory retirement. Come on guys and gals pull the pin already and start enjoying your retirement. It's unfortunate that some of the people start their careers late but you should have done your homework prior to taking the job.

Don't worry about it. You didn't piss anybody off. We have frequent dealings with 10-96's. They can be quite frustrating, but you know it's not their fault that they have a mental illness. You see, any reasonable person can tell that you are ill. I would say that you are suffering from a delusional disorder with a case of narcissistic personality disorder sprinkled on top. These disorders are quite common among your ranks. Maybe there is something in the water at sp headquarters, or maybe there is a chemical in the brown dye from your uniforms that causes these disorders. Either way, seek help, its for your own good.

And again, don't worry, you didn't piss anybody off. Getting upset at a mentally unstable individual such as yourself would be like getting mad at a child for contracting the chicken pox, it's not anyone's fault, these things happen. But please, please, I implore you, seek help.

First off Chiefs are not a merit spot, the are appointed exempt spots. They can be busted down to LT. or their previous rank for any reason or FIRED if they do not hold a merit rank. Second If you are a LT or SGT you can not be busted down without just cause and Manpower is not included.

You forgot to add another cost cutting idea to the list. How about taking away ccspd's take home cars. That would definitely save a lot of money. But that won't even be considered because their arrogance actually makes them believe that they deserve those cars. So keep the cars, but enjoy the lay offs.

I hate to tell you that you are wrong!, CCSPD makes more a year than CO's and Dep's as they too obtain OT $$$. And if you make more than me who fucking really cares, that means you paid more federal taxes into the Obama-Clusterfuck programs than the rest of us, so how do you feel now?.
Listen here blue, every single department, every agency has 10% of fuckups and haters and slugs and pension double dippers in it so get use to it, go to work do your job properly that is spelled out under your job classification and be glad you have a government job with nice benefits and a pension.

I am back. A little more sober this time.

It isnt the matter of replacing CCSD with CCSPD. It is the matter of returning to our core missions of what we used to do and this is how the county board perceives us.

Perception IS reality.

Like it or not, Court Services Deputies were never LE. Go all the way back in time to Elrod. Court Services was just that - Officers of the Court. Your job is to ensure the safety, security and efficiency of our courtrooms. Only you stand between the bar and the bad guy armed with a gun setting out to shoot his ex-wife's divorce lawyer and others in a courtroom. This happened down at Daley Center a long time ago. It happened in Georgia and I am sure if you search hard enough, you will find other instances of armed court violence.

Then there is the CIVIL matters that Court Services does. Serving papers, writs and evictions. Also a very necessary and crucial job. Without you the court system in this county stops dead.

There is nothing in the budget that your Chief Deputy submits in his core mission statement about making traffic stops in the lot. Don't believe me then go read the budget submission.

This my friend is what the County Board and for that matter the public perceives as your/our job functions.

There also is no place for Corrections to get on TV and make traffic stops.

There is no place for the Police Department to run a jail or a courtroom.

I am sorry that you took my comments as though I wanted to cut you and everyone else except the PD. It wasn't meant that way.

How about someone in the courts side come up with a few ideas to cut fat in their budgets. Being an ex correctional officer under O'Grady I may not have too many ideas, but I'll take a stab at it:

41. Dump all of the CPD people. They have a pension and are taking other people's jobs. You have more of them than CCSPD does.

42. I do not know how many 30 year plus people you have. If they had a buyout that mattered how many would go?

43. We used to have Holiday Court deputies. Our deps worked M-F and was off holidays. The courts ran fine with the P/T people. Time to look at this again? If a guy wants a star and a gun then he'll have to give up a few weekends for free for the people of the county for the right to carry one.

44. The process servers used their own cars, wore plain clothes and usually did their work at night and on the weekends. Why are guys driving around trying to serve paper when everyone is at work? There is efficiencies to be captured here by going back to the old way it was done.

45. Eliminate the branch courts. Bring everyone to the districts, Daley Center or 26th Street. The city branches are a model of inefficiency. Buses run to all courthouses.

46. Bring back video preliminary trials and bond hearings. That system should have worked, what happened?

47. Child Support. Isn't that shit criminal? Shouldn't that be a Police function like sex offender registration?

More to come.

Anonymous said...

Then there is the Jail.

48. FMLA is killing them there. The medical roll is out of control.

49. Hire enough people to cover medicals and planned time off.

50. Why are inmates sitting there for months and YEARS waiting on trial. The Sheriff needs to sit down with all of the players including the presiding judge to figure out how to push people through the system quicker.

51. They ave more gold star wearing bosses than inmates! Who does the work at the jail anyway with all that brass around? It ran fine with a director like that idiot Leak, Bob Glotz and Tommy Monahan. There was 1-2 Chiefs like Caballaro and Knight handled stuff at night and thats it.

Do they really need all those superintendents? Maybe one guy can handle 2 divisions? What do all the building chiefs do?

They need a major de-brassing at 26th! You'd save a fortune on Blackberries and squad cars!!

Your turn. Time for football.

1. Get rid of all the leftover CPD, FED and wherever else people that are double fucking the public by drawing a pension, a salary and building another pension. Wait I guess that's triple fucking.
2. Mandatory retirement.
3.Go back to a Chief,1DC and Chief of patrol and send the fucking lawyers packing.
4.Demote every Commander to LT. ya I know it's not a big difference but every little bit helps and let's not kid ourselves they will all keep doing the same job rather than be put back in patrol on mids.
5.get rid of OPR and let everyone go back to policing themselves.
6.Just like the Republicans want to go back to 08 spending we need to go back to 07 exempt rank levels. This guy has created more bullshit jobs than I've ever seen. He makes Sheehan look like a fiscal conservative and that ain't easy.
7.Get every PO on the street doing POLICE work. Hire civilians, part-time with no benefits to do what little work the coffee cup holders do.
8. speaking of coffee cup holders get rid of the inspector position and have an LT do it. It's not even a part time job it's a twice a year job.
9.Get a contract with one gas company-speedway, shell whatever for the entire County and negotiate a huge discount on gas.
10. i agree with most of the other suggestions.

How about reassigning 75% of your department back to the jail. You patrol less than 3% of all of cook county, you really need 700 people to do that. Dcsi warrants?? They out arrest ccspd 10 to 1. Ive seen ccspd working in the city, scared little rabbits. Get rid of the fat, hell yes. Lets start with the clown that takes a half hour to get out of their squad. Your department in whole is not needed. Lets be honest, you didnt get there cause you were some super cop. Either your daddy, granddaddy, mommy, or auntie paid one way or another (political favor, or cash) how else do you explain these 1 year wonders. Shut your useless, havent made a felony arrest ever ass and go back to sleep in your squad. I guarantee you were in there typing up that 35 point presentation. Nothing better to do?? Ohh one more thing, ccspd patrol, stay in your little unincorp. sliver, stop trying to be the real police. Your patrol sector is NOT the city of chicago. You are a joke.

Hmmm, professional training and experience is what sets the great ccspd apart. OK, then instead of replacing deps and co's with ccspd, why not just hire a few more lawyers for those spots. That is what your logic dictates zippy.

Lets do a comparison using your own parameters of value, professional training and professional experience. Lets see how the vaunted ccspd stacks up to the hated lawyers.

1. Professional training - Gotta give the edge here to the lawyers here. Lets see, 3 years of law school vs. 3 months of clout acadamy at Triton. That was an easy choice.

Lawyers - 1
Greatest dept ever (ccspd) - 0

2. Professional experience - A lawyer who has prepared and tried cases vs. ccspd - half of the officers can't even fill out the paperwork properly at Maywood.
Edge goes to the lawyers again.

Lawyers - 2
Greatest dept ever (ccspd) - 0

Clean sweep for the hated lawyers.

So based on your own logic the great and powerful ccspd couldn't stack up.

So zippy, don't send in the clout heavy clown college drop-outs from ccspd to do the job of a lawyer, send in trained experienced professionals to get the job done properly with no ccspd fuck ups.

County Guy, can you please do us all a favor and screen out the absolutely ridiculous ideas that are being offered. It is painfully obvious that these fools have no clue what they are talking about.

WoW 5 chiefs of staff! More Chiefs and Deputy Chiefs then patrol officers. Medical health advocate with a gold star. There are more gold star carrying personal the silver. Look at the jobs made by TD for all his friends. This is what the upper heads want fighting with all the departments and not looking at the real problem TD. It's gonna be a long 4yrs Save jobs and stop fighting with each other. Love 16yr Jail guard.

Speaking of chiefs of staff. The only reason that spot was ever created was sheehan creating a job for fluffy. Then fluffy takes power and now we have 5 chiefs of staff. They pull d.wright from the academy to be the chief of staff of courts. Why in the world do we need a chief of staff in courts? When we have a chief of courts, Chief deputy sheriff, and ass chief deputy sheriff. Is hands,piper, and heffernan so incompetent they need a 115k a year babysitter?? And here is the real kicker. D.wright makes less money than heffernan and she outrankes him now. This whole operation is a joke.

does the county pay unemployment taxes? would we receive unemployment benefits if we were laid off?

Speaking of certain unit. They have more supervisors than officers. Not to mention the so called computer expert they just hired making more than the chief. Yeah the one that is very close with fluffer who cant even turn on a computer. Why doesn't shackman ever investigate all the 80-95k a year soccer moms that fluffer hired. Yeah all those so called computer and security experts that are friends of his wife.

Just when you thought we were short-staffed, somehow T.D found the man power to put three C/O's and two deputies in a special unit. What special unit you may ask?? THE OPR RAT SQUAD!!

The in-fighting between those of us with 6 pointed stars, regardless of the unit stated, is just what the county is looking for. "Let them argue amongst themselves, berate one another, air that dirty laundry, point out our shortcomings, make wild accusations, etc". So many people feel they "pay our salaries" doesn't anyone realize that sooner or later stuff like this will get picked up by the media? Then watch the stories take on a life of their own. Chuck Goudie can do more shocking stories, remember the near "casino setting" at one facility. We are all worried about losing our jobs. But do we have to give out so much ammunition to those who will exploit it further? Do we have to make ourselves look like whinning adolescents? We are turning on one another calling for this one to be eliminated and that one to be shut down. Don't you see we are playing in to their hands? I have over 26 yrs on the job and I'll agree we are in a bad situation. I feel most people are more frustrated than anything, but cooler heads need to prevail. I know we are not all just going to kiss and make up, but let's take a deep breath and think. The in-fighting can come down on us like a house of cards. It's time to man up and stop these childish games.

This may sound a little harsh but Sheriff Dart needs to resign. When you have lost the the respect of 95% of the dept including most of the top brass you cannot manage effectively. The morale in this dept is at a all time low. He should do the right thing and step down.

Fluffys Not In It For The Money said...

It looks like fluffs father and brother were both lobbyiest crooks. But we all know tommy is just an honest politician. Yeah Right! It looks like fluffys brother tim made over 500,000 last year off the city.

Crook County said...

Last year alone, Tim Dart, 43, was paid $541,500 to lobby Daley's staff, the City Council and city agencies on behalf of 15 clients, records filed by the younger Dart with City Hall show. Tim Dart is active in his brother's political career. He's chairman of the sheriff's two campaign funds, and he helped organize his brother's brief mayoral bid.

Tim Dart and his law partner have given more than $180,000 to political candidates since 2005.

The Darts' late father, William F. Dart, was second-in-command of the city's law department under the late Mayor Richard J. Daley. The elder Dart went on to become a powerful lobbyist with clients including the Chicago Board of Trade.

Tim Dart once worked for his father's law firm. His lobbying career blossomed 10 years ago, when the law firm of Winston & Strawn, headed by former Gov. James R. Thompson, hired him for its lobbying division


Apples dont fall far from the tree fluff boy!!

Anonymous said...

I wonder if Sheriff Tom gets a kickback for backing out. He would have been the strongest candidate. The article is an eye-opener. Timmy gets half a million dollars to deprive the taxpayers of control of their government. If we enacted a 99% tax on lobby money we could balance the budget.

The C-C-SPD chant is really funny, but let's move on with the program already.

Enough of the bitching about CCSPD hating the Deputies driving Police cars and whatnot.

Most SP don't care anyway since you're driving pieces of crap that the baby Commander tossed back to 103rd, for a new ride for his traffic minions.

You really know who is mad about the traffic lot patrols and 6-101 arrests...The other Deputies

Short staffing levels in the buildings according to all the previous posts, and I would be pissed if Deputy Do-It-All was rolling out the door for 8 hours and doing whatever he/she wants, while we work the courtrooms, lockup and front door.

Meanwhile, the SP(majority) really don't care because once you leave the Jail and Courts to come over here, Patrol is your first stop. Driving around in circles is all we do. It gets boring.

Thank CCSP for the separate series issue of stars to work upstairs at the Square. Without knowing where the God's of Law Enforcement work, I would never know how happy I could be to get little crumbs like the Gang Unit or Special Ops.

So, the point of my little story is for everyone to realize that there are other internal beefs that keep most of us busy, too busy to worry about Deputy Awesomeness driving that 2001 beater, that some slug in Patrol used to have.

Do we charge for people to be on house arrest? If we don't, we should be getting $100 bucks for each person to be on house arrest/E.M. The charge will cover gas and maintenance of car. Who wouldn't pay the hundred?

Is there a uniform shop that we could utilize that doesn't cost as much as Ray Oherrons? Every time I walk out of there I feel as if I've been screwed by a 500 pound gorilla.

Enough of the CCSD, DOC, CCSPD bickering. This blog is getting hard to read with all the nonsense. I came from the jail and have a deep respect for you guys there. It sucks and we all give ourselves a five year plan to get out of there. I said it many times, "I'm giving myself five years and if I don't get promoted or move out to Sheriff's Police I'm quitting"! However, it doesn't always work out how you planned it. Took me seven years to get out of that shit hole which was two years longer than I gave myself. There are many more who were there longer than that. I think we should all just be grateful we have jobs with insurance. Say it with me, "No matter where I work, I have a job with insurance". Say it again. "No matter where I work, I have a job with insurance". Sounds good doesn't it.

On that note, Deps be safe, DOC watch the hands and look for secured shoe laces and CCSPD nothing is ever routine....NEVER!

oh yeah graet idea with only one problem. When we make an arrest in ford heighst we have to drive to 26th street? Thats alot of gas money plus when they need back up in the heights we will be 45 minutes away. that would turn into a cluster fuck plus put us in big time danger. not to metion some of the idiots i work with will make a suspended D/L arrest and will dick around at 26th street the whole shift. Sorry Sgt i got caught up. How convieniant your shift is almost over.

OK, so we have like 200 posts, good, bad, and indifferent about what to do and what to cut.

At the square we have ZERO information from our Chief and FDC?

Why is this?

Oooh, I know why, we have NO LEADERSHIP! They have no clue of what to do and wont even acknowledge the whole situation, leaving the rumor mill going at full speed.

Instead, we get a GO about Tattoos, the annual furlough, secondary employment, official holidays. Yup, business as usual like nothing is going on.

We spend around 700K per year for the salaries of the Chief, FDC and 4 DC's. They spend all this management firepower thinking about their early duck out on Wednesday instead of LEADING and INFORMING their subordinates.

Real LEADERS stop rumors in their tracks. They put out straight information and calm their subordinate's fears. We got nothing. Shame on you DeWayne!

Zippy, are you spinning us for real ?. Real leaders are trained in the US Military, they are precision driven members of an organization who instill pride in themselves and others and they are dedicated to the mission. The clowns we have here running this department are dedicated only to their ego's and to the pension check if they live long enough to see one or they are double dippers with benefits fucking the system and all the personnel below them.

Do not fear what you have no control over. I have no fears on this job from these morons you call leaders, I only have resentment and embarrassment.
I fear only one being and that one is God.

THE BIG LAYOFF

No individual should entertain the idea of giving back to the county any of our new raises or taking a pay cut or whatever else the county board or Fluffer purpose.

Let the politicians take the first step in reducing their payrolls of political hacks who are not merit and who "Show up".

Like always they will attempt to shove it down our throats and blame us for the high cost of doing business and cut our ranks before they cut theirs so that we start infighting.
