City Council needs to take action

City Council ought to give serious consideration to using its powers of interpellation to interview the administration officials responsible for the Irving Bradley case, in which the City of Trenton is employing someone who appears to be an illegal non-resident in a position for which he is totally unqualified.

Chief of Staff Renee Haynes, Business Administrator Jane Feigenbaum, and Personnel chief Raissa Walker all need to be questioned over how exactly this is happened, and why they told City Council and the general public months ago that Mr. Bradley was “highly qualified” for his position.

That amounts to an outright lie fed to both City Council and the residents of the city, and a stronger group of individuals on council would take some sort of action on these administration officials, who seem to find it quite easy to pass warped or completely false information to the residents’ representatives on council.

Also, with the Department of Personnel’s statement that Mr. Bradley is not even qualified to take the Civil Service exam for his position why exactly has the City of Trenton taken it upon itself to pay a man unqualified for his position at the very top of the pay range described for the position?

Cash-strapped Trenton can ill afford to be providing thousands of dollars in salary, usage of vehicle, gasoline, and cell phones to city employee who are unqualified for their positions.

The city needs the best possible employees who are qualified for their positions and can provide the best type of public service to the city.

    Couldn’t agree more.

    The unqualified, non-resident (where applicable) and incompetent need to be gone.

    It is a quick and easy way to tighten the fiscal belt.
