  • Re: Reed/Liccardo Staffing Plan Does Not Add Up

    Hi Jim, I am in District 10 and a victim of eight different car break-ins this year. I have been sort of trying to confront Councilmember Khamis, who basically ignores me and would not discuss the Gold Club issue. But you see this guy at every opening of every ethnic group event in the City. You can just see straight up he wants to be mayor. Please hang in there and know that most of the citizens of San Jose know Measure B was stupid and ill advised. You have our support!

    Mayor Greed and his cronies (the councilmembers who support him) are full of themselves and seek only to benefit themselves. They have the support of a few "squeaky wheels" who turned out to vote in favor of what Grinch sold to his constituents as factual, when, in reality, it has been all lies. He pushed for the ballot measure in June because he knew most voters come out during the general elections in November. He knew the June elections would be his best and only shot. Unfortunately, his opponents, and supporters of public safety, dropped the ball and did not vote, which allowed for Grinch's ballot to be passed by only HIS few supporters, not the majority of San Jose residents as Grinch claims.

    I hope San Jose residents will wake up and see through the lies spewing from Grinch's and his cronies' pie holes, not to mention the damage they have caused to the safety of a great city. Residents should ride along with officers to see how few are actually working the streets, as well as what officers must endure with little to no resources.

    In summary, the adage "you get what you pay for" applies to what Mayor Grinch and his cronies have accomplished with their city's public safety. Considered a great City and police department for which to work, San Jose City is now a stepping stone for many employees, particulary polie and fire personnel who will have their academy and training paid by the City and move on to other jurisdictions with better pay and benefits, all of which are simply comparable to industry standards, unlike what Grinch would want to make you belief.

    YOU GET WHAT YOU PAY FOR! AND YOU CAN THANK MAYOR GRINCH AND HIS CRONIES FOR YOUR LESS-THAN-DESIRABLE PUBLIC SAFETY SERVICE!

    The citizens and the politicians that represent them (Ash Kalra being the only notable exception) have dealt a final and lethal blow to what once was an extremely effective Police force. They deserve the city and Police force they have created with these lies told, misrepresentation about pensions and pay, and their underhanded and ungrateful policiEs

    Thank you for an honest and understandable description of this mess! It is so unfortunate that these men have led so poorly.

    Who has more clout, the PD or the electricians? The WPCP got their pay restored!

    I think they should start investigating everything the Mayor has done where money is concerned. What about all the money they spent trying to get the Oakland A's to San Jose.

    Why have we as citizens allowed him to stay in office?

    Citizens are looking for a presence in their neighborhoods in the absence the SJPD. Other communities outside WG are looking into the same. We need to take a step back and look at the whole picture of corruption and abuse in SJ politics that have left us with no choice but to look for options to protect our property.

    That TAPS is the next private company to profit off the close relationship with our city's leaders shouldn't be surprising.

    Remember the Zimmerman case? The other end part of this is private security guards being paid and asked to look the other way for favors. That is what separates the real police from the privately paid security. Scruples and ethics.

    I'd be curious to know what Mr. Truong's PD assignment is and if he is subject to the mandatory overtime that our officers have been subjected to. He seems to have a lot of time on his hands running a side business!
