Flaherty & Yoon saying one thing and doing another

In the Herald today there is an article where Michael Flaherty talks about how we need a Mayor who saves money but doesn't spend money. Well in the four years since 2005 when I ran for City Councilor, Flaherty (and Yoon) have raised the City Budget for the City Council by 20%!!! Now that they have tired of working for the City Council saying that the job has no power and is perfunctory they want to be Mayor? So, let me get this straight-you have a job that has no power so you increase the cost to the taxpayers of this useless job by 20% and then you say you want to bring cost cutting to the Mayor's office?

Who believes this stuff?

Meanwhile Yoon's blog has a picture of him at the St. Patrick's Day parade. The same parade that he promised not to march in if we elected him to the City Council. I guess he is proud of the fact that he went back on his word to join a group that excludes people based on sexual orientation. That is the type of leadership we need in the 21st century, a politician who panders and goes back on his word, which he then conveniently forgets about. We certainly didn't have any politicians like that in the 20th century.

Who believes these guys?
