Monday, July 24, 2006 | So Union Attorney Anne Smith says those of us who own property must pay for the illegal pensions gains of her clients, gained under fraudulent circumstances and voted on with conflicts of interest. And those who don’t own property get off the hook? Sounds fair to me.

She adds that we pay two cents for Zoo maintenance so why not for pension benefits (probably for the rest of my life.) I will answer her.Because the Zoo is a community asset and draws millions a year to our city, aiding the hospitality and other tourist businesses. I want my two cents spent on police and fire protection and roads and potholes and other needs of the city, not to enable city employees to retire early and live off my increased property taxes
