Gerken and the Dog Warden Controversy

Today, Pete Gerken and Tina Skeldon Wozniak denied Ben Konop's motion to remove Tom Skeldon as dog warden. (not sure if Tina had a conflict of interest there).

One could say this vote was predictable. Putting aside Tina's possible conflict of interest, we should take a look at the other commissioner's past statements.

Here's one appalling statement, which possibly explains why Gerken did not see any reason Skeldon should be removed.

"Mr. Gerken, who backed Mr. Ford over Mr. Finkbeiner in 2005, brushed aside the racism question and said local Democrats are 'like a marriage, or a family. There's disagreements sometimes. I love my dog, but he makes me mad and I kick him sometimes, and he sleeps outside.'"

No votes yet

I would like to kick him as he makes me mad.......

Mr gerkin feels the same way about his constituants.....

“Political correctness is a doctrine, fostered by a delusional, illogical minority, and rabidly promoted by an unscrupulous mainstream media, which holds forth the proposition that it is entirely possible to pick up a turd by the clean end.”

Given the fact that most families have skeldons(pun intended)in their closets, I'm of the opinion he's got something on his cousin.
