To the Editor:
The Retirement Incentive Program illustrates most of what is wrong with Hamden: Political Corruption.
The mayor and the Legislative Council have been asked by me and others to show where the projected savings are. The New Haven Register reports that only a draft is available and is not being released to the public.
Because the numbers are known to NOT support the claims that the Mayor is making to give those set to retire a $10,000 Bonus on the backs of the taxpayers for political payola.
The Mayor should know who can take advantage of the proposed program, how the town can benefit from its implementation and we all know he does. This should be public knowledge. It is not because there is no benefit to the town. The Mayor is withholding information to backdoor passage by a Legislative Council that does not care that the townspeople can no longer afford to allow this corruption to continue.
Mr. Jackson and Ms. Kozak: Make the numbers known and then STEP DOWN and give the Town of Hamden back to the townspeople and out of the hands of conniving politicians who do not act in their sworn capacities to serve and protect the the people they are sworn to: the People and Taxpayers of Hamden!
