Letter: Pothole-filled roads reflect badly on city managers

There’s a contest for the best pothole discoveries in the City of “Crater” Sudbury. Whoopitidoo! For a start on this total joke, bring yourselves to the corner of Elm Street and Frood Road and work your way down to the Donovan Playground.

This whole area is a massive pothole. I would need a satellite to cover the entire troubled area. A camera would not do it. I would run out of memory covering each pothole.

We are in real trouble here because as much as council and the mayor would like us to believe they are in control and they run the show, to put it mildly, it’s a joke. Yuk-Yuks has nothing on these guys.

Worse yet, the people who really run this city are not elected, therefore they don’t have to pay attention to the elected officials, nor do they have to pay attention to the taxpayers. These people are the first line supervisors, the managers and so forth.

There are a lot of blue collar guys and gals out there that try to do their jobs, but the above-mentioned bosses won’t let them. If you don’t toe the line you can go home and think about it, without pay of course.

We push snow around until spring, then we wait for the flooding. Take that snow and truck it. The hell with the budget. We will always find a way to be overbudget.

This year has been a real challenge for the real people – those shovelling out driveways and such. But as for the city’s snow clearing, I haven’t seen a great increase in that. Yet we are overbudget. The taxpayer has no choice but to bail you out. At least take the damned stuff away and prevent some flooding.

So have a happy election, folks. It won’t make any difference if you change all those profit-eaters and add a whole new slate of profit-eaters.
