Recently I noticed City Hall is getting a makeover. The city hired nonunion workers.
What's the cost to redo something Portage residents should not have to pay for, when most of our residents will never see the inside of those rooms where budgets are decided for our city?
This does not seem fair to Portage residents, instead of much-needed sidewalks or other much-needed things our city needs.
More than half our residents are union workers. Instead of hiring professionals who understand safety procedures, our mayor spent money on workers who didn't tie off for safety. Hiring untrained workers to save a buck puts our city at risk. Don't hire untrained workers who could fall out of these open walls and sue our city for a lot of money.
It seems we need to take a closer look at our frivolous spending mayor, who really doesn't have our people's best interest at heart, when it's time to vote.
