Tuesday, Jan.30, 2007 | Referencing Scott Lewis‘ article, “The Aguirre Accusation Factory,” Aguirre is like a bedeviled delinquent who has somehow stolen the ignition key for a monstrous bulldozer, and is steering crazily headlong into innocent bystanders and buildings, with none willing to stop him from doing further damage, out of fear for his powerful parents (the taxpayers).

Because of his monster mash, the taxpayers will eventually pay up with higher taxes and fees. However, the longer the delay in stopping their offspring’s destructive stomp, the higher their tab will be.

For example, it’s costing MEA union members, about 6000 city employees, over a $100,000 a month for legal fees in this pension case, forcing a large special monthly assessment for upwards of three years. This is in addition to an accumulated average loss in take home pay of about 6 percent per year in other ways. You can bet the MEA is keeping careful account for an adjudicated remuneration from the city.
