Guest VETERAN Posted January 14, 2009 Report Share Posted January 14, 2009 I am writing a response in reply to the study done by the state of the Harrison Police Department. I think it is a total disgrace that any Mayor and Council of Harrison would consider the suggestions in the report and compromise the safety of the public as a monetary cut-back measure that the town has suffered as a result of corruption, nepotism, and cronyism. These men are para-military and in lean financial times crime rises exponentially. How could anyone in their right mind fail to see the same. The President-elect promises change. I guess that must mean everywhere except the Town of Harrison. Governor Corzine, a fellow Democrat, has acknowledged widespred corruption throughout the state. Why doesn't the Mayor insist the town in what he cannot do, be an effective reformer. He can then blame the Governor for the people that are let go or departments that are disbanded and try to remain in power. It is not so hard to do. Just follow the money trail and that will cut thru and clarify the culprits and profiteers. The Fire Department hihglights my opinion perfectly. The only service truly needed is the ambulance. Why would a distressed city keep 50 to 60 employees who I imagine would average $80,000.00 to $100,000.00 on the payroll when they are clearly not needed. This is comparable to the structure of organized crime. Why hasn't the Mayor and Council or Fire Chief ask for a study of the HFD, mostly comprised of people who would wet their pants at the thought of serving their country as military personnel. I have seen women perform acts of bravery in combat that these guys get the same credit for putting out a garbage can fire. What a total disgrace. That is my opinion of the situation.
