Well if Obama admn. does decide to give some free flights to US cities we know AZ won't be a likely destination with the new SB1070 show your papers.. :) 8 months ago
Willing to bet it's 90-100K for two security guards... Waste of money... invest it into high quality cameras and security systems.
Guards are essentially a waste and then you have potential liabilities if a Guard does something improper.
With the current plan of a police presence who needs Guards standing around.Jun 23, 2011
We had six very good candidates, I think.” Lewis stated.
Well, that's pretty scary from what I have seen with these candidates backgrounds.
Looks like we're going from bad to worse. Jun 23, 2011
I hope she does "anything" in this position since she hasn't done a single thing yet in two years. Her original platform was "fiscal conservative" but hasn't done anything on that or anything else. Jun 15, 2011
I don't believe that the cameras are infringing on our rights but what I do believe is like in other posts above that the burden of proof lies upon the ticketed. It's not supposed to be that way here or anywhere.
So because you have a slim chance on ever beating the photo radar tickets with due process, then the camera must go.
You do have the right to face your accuser but why bother at all when odds are 100% against you. So the best thing is to ignore those citations that show up in the mail and take your chances on being served.
I actually had one process server show to my home wearing a delivery persons uniform carrying a small box trying to trick his way in serving. Unfortunately, for him , his rouse didn't work on me. I noticed him parking two houses up the street and walk down to my home. He did try a second time but I remembered what he looked like.
I think most should take their chances and when most stop paying and starts costing the cities even more, they just may take a second look at those "wonderful" camera that are nothing but "Revenue builders" for the towns.
And let's not forget that enforcing the law cost's money to do. You want more traffic enforcement, Hire more police officers and let's get back to what our constitution permits, " You have the right to face your accuser". Which was not intended to be a computer/machine.May 23, 2011
I have to agree with you ivotetoo..... It will be interesting to watch and see what this new council does.
The reason that the Mayor and Daniels haven't accomplished anything during their tenure on council is because they were always out voted what was the reason their supporters gave.
They never even tried to do anything in my recollection. I would have thought they should have continued to try to pas their agendas and be on record. So let's see what can be done other than taking care of the Boy and Girl Scouts in Gilbert. May 23, 2011
