You would think with that kind of money, he could put his non-union employees back on 40 hours a week. They were all cut back to 35 hours a week nearly 9 months ago.

Hey Neiman1:
Don't forget the union dues and effort expended by the PPA on Trowbridge. I wonder if Chris Collins is sitting with the Mayor calculating how much it will cost to contest the vote since they simply can't concede defeat (see quotes in Friday's RJ).

I think the Sun was spot on by endorsing Anthony. Trowbridge has shown what a disingenuous, pandering politician he is by trotting out his union backing for all Ward 4 Democrats to see, and then sending out a mailer in which he snuggles closely with Senator Ensign while calling himself a "true conservative" to garner Republican support. I would rather have a man who made one alleged "error" and has been open and honest about the situation, than Trowbridge who is so desperate to gain votes, and to hop right on up to City Council to be Oscar's personal puppet, that he will promise anything to anyone.

It is patently obvious that Trowbrdige dangles on the strings of countless puppet-masters. How any thinking person could vote for him is beyond me. At what point do we ever put someone on City Council who can speak without Oscar, the unions, the developers or the casinos moving their mouths?

Are you kidding me? Of course Trowbridge is a puppet. Goodman's quote all but says "Trowbridge will be my puppet". For our own little Hugo Chavez, i.e. Oscar Goodman, "team player" simply means "foot soldier". Mayor Goodman doesn't care what the citizens of Las Vegas want. He only cares about what he wants. Trowbridge will simply be another Oscar "yes-man". Anthony will at least represent the citizens, and not the Mayor. The City Hall project is opposed by an overwhelming majority of the citizens of Las Vegas, the Mayor knows it, but doesn't want anyone to get in his way.

Trowbridge has further shown, in his capacity as a planning commissioner, that he's another developer/land owner patsy. You want a variance, a supplemental use permit, a waiver, a zone change? You got it Mr. Landowner/Lobbyist. He has ignored and denigrated citizen input simply because that citizen is outside the pathetic "notification range" for such issues. He has flip-flopped and equivocated all through the campaign to hide these facts.

Additionally, Trowbridge has shown, in his prior capacity with the County Parks and Recreation that he has poor judgment and no spine. Trowbridge allowed Erin Kenny (remember her and all her ethical/criminal issues) to push him around to engage in defective construction practices at the Desert Breeze skate park just so she could hold a campaign event. The result? Dangerous concrete conditions and additional costs for repairs.

Isn't it time we stopped stocking City Council with nothing but lemmings for our power hungry autocrat?
