    Re: Mayor Elect Christenson.....

    More hack jobs at City hall, just like his master before him, .... cant wait to see the qualified people he puts in these spots. C'mon Gary , I thought things would be different, but i guess not.....  Is it efficent?  Everyone else is asked to do more with less, but the Mayors office.

    Anotherman,


    No reply huh?  I guess that answers the question.  Business as usual.  Another empty suit takes office at the taxpayers expense.  I guess this is an example of the levelling tendency of democracy.  This is why Malden will always be nothing more than what it is right now and will only get worse.  If we could only have people of quality and integrity involved in Malden politics we would have quality results.

    To AMaldenSeniorCitizen and all:

    I just had a conversation on the phone with Gary, as he was kind enough to leave his number in the email reply to me.

    We talked about the Globe article's mention of the three top aides he just hired, and, in his own words, Gary stated that these are jobs for his immediate staff (mayor's office) which he hired these people for, and that this is an ordinary practice for someone in the executive branch to do at the state and local levels.

    So, I am just relaying here what I heard from Gary.

    Re: Mayor Elect Christenson.....

    Thank you anotherman.  Let me see.  Three jobs that never existed before are added to the Mayors office. He doesn't allow for competition for these positions which would ensure the taxpayers get quality for their money.  Instead he hires who? -people who maybe campaigned for him? - who are not qualified. That is like making charitable contributions to your friends at the taxpayers expense. I guess Gary and I agree on one thing.  I say "business as usual" and he calls this normal practice.  I know he campaigned on transparency.  This must be his idea of it.  Now everyone can see right through him.  Oh well.

    I wonder how long before a new CFO is hired. I heard there may be more money missing from the Treasurers Office

    Lets see what he changes after he is sworn in,  I know I have asked him a few questions and he has refer them to the Councilor in Ward 7 but the Ward 7 Councilor had done nothing.
    Than i asked him another question how much money has the city saved this winter versus last winter and will he put out a cost analysis of the money spent this winter. (Breakdown of
    equipment cost [outside contractors & their hrs] Materials used, and DPW workers cost  versus last year)
    Lets see if he does that much. Other cities do on a regular basis.  I asked using Nov 1st to Dec. 31st 2011 versus the same period  last year Nov 1st to dec.31st 2010.
