In- freakin'- sane.
Patronage employees suing to overturn legislation passed by the elected government of Philadelphia, just to keep their cushy jobs.
I've seen some crazy Philly corruption stories but the sheer balls to even file this suit boggles my mind.
Still pondering this one. Do they think, now that Council has passed the legislation and its headed to the ballot that state government is going to come charging to their defense? The state pumps money into the Philadlephia School District. They know full well that a big part of the reason Phila schools are as they are is because of its broken real estate assesment system. People in tony suburbs pay big property taxes to support their own schools and then support Philly schools via the state takeover.
The State Supreme Court is an elected office and winning those suburbs is important to getting re-elected.
The BRT is completely misreading the politics behind the law on this - besides of course being a legal "hail Mary" pass.
Un - freakin' - believable.
They just can't go quietly, can they? They can't accept that their jobs are 100% useless, that they are widely reviled by the public, that their careers and names have been tarnished for a very good reason, that a monkey flipping a quarter could come up with more logical property assessments. I wish these idiots would just take their retirements and get out of the way.
$70,000 for part time work. No wonder why they are fighting.
