      I suppose $37,000 as an alderwoman didn’t pay enough. Now she will get 3x as much money and do 1/3 less work!!!

    Henry, that never happens in the fine city with slay in the mayors chair! I am shocked that you would suggest such! Just like the captain in CASABLANCA I am shocked that gambling is going on in here. Here are your winnings sir. if there is any dirt coming out of city hall, slay will be in hiding, he knows nothing, and is not involved at all!!! and the voters in the city keep sending him back.
