Alexandria’s Mayor has vetoed the proposed City budget.
City council presented their version of the budget..Mayor says no.
City council president refuses to meet, supposedly with mayor.
Simple as that. Neither side seems willing to work together for any type of compromise.
We seem to have an ineffective city government and the citizens of Alexandria seem unwilling to hold both divisions of city government’s feet to the fire.
You are supposed to work together, not go in opposite directions.
But that seems to be the status quo.
This was not necessary, but they all seem unwilling to communicate with each other….I really do not think you can pin the failure on one or the other..They BOTH are at fault.
Now the mayor is in a threatening mode.
It has been reported the city council will try to over-ride the Mayors veto.
The just over 20% of registered voters who turned out to elect part of this bunch ..Hello! it’s almost summer and you are still in hibernation?
We did not elect these people to run over us with what ever agenda they have in mind at the moment!
We elected them to run our city and run it effectively, NOT play with their pet ..petty ass vested interest’s!
We deserve better than this!!!
(For in-depth detail, all you need to do is view the various Council meetings and Mayors briefings on local channel four.. They speak for themselves….)
