Representative CAMILLE VELLA WILKINSON worked as former corrupt Mayor Scott Avedisian's shill for six years while serving on the Warwick City Council Finance Committee, she was also a city retiree board member (we checked her for slacking on her board member attendance record).
While Rep Camille Vella Wilkinson served on the Warwick City Council and on the City Finance committee, she did nothing but demean every citizen of Warwick that stepped up to the podium inside City Hall to express their concerns about the massive financial dilemma the city of Warwick was facing. Educated, smart, and caring Warwick taxpayers who saw the writing on the wall repeatedly presented accurate facts and figures (for free mind you) to highlight the massive fiscal doom that our City was facing in the not so near future.
Camille Vella Wilkinson sabotaged citizen presentations, openly mocked citizens by calling information being presented as "kitchen table numbers" , openly allowed city union employees to bully, harass, mock and attempt to intimidate good citizens of Warwick who were just trying to get the truth and facts out there to the public. No one wanted to hear it. They laughed. Fools are always so easily fooled.
Rep Camille Vella -Wilkinson only had her eyes set on the ticket she was holding on to that was punched for her train ride up to the State House to pander some more to the special interest groups that sent her there. Vella-Wilkinson's sidekick, long time City Council member DONNA TRAVIS who represents the Oakland Beach area, is another one who has burned the City of Warwick and the taxpayers every single year she's been on the City Council--- TOO MANY years.
All a bunch of lying , crony hacks who FOR YEARS:
So they could all fraudulently enrich themselves.
The local media -for years- lied for Avedisian and mislead city employees and the taxpayers of Warwick. When Warwick Watch - five years ago- warned about the ONE BILLION DEFICIT the city of Warwick was facing , local media mocked it as the "big scary numbers".
Well it's all hitting the fan so hard now, you better duck and keep your mouth and eyes closed!!!
Now Mayor Solomon is left hold the big stinking bag of ____.
And BTW-- the city retirement board voted just last year to give themselves (as most of the members are city employees) and Warwick city retirees a 3% COLA every year!!! Something ELSE our Warwick City Council OVERLOOKED!!!
Mayor Joe solomon did a fine job outlining the dire financial situation our city is in, so let's see how HEALTHCARE REFORM, SPENDING CUTS & STOPPING THOSE COLAS will come into play for this one sided " self correcting mechanism" situation. You know it can't all just be just on the backs of the taxpayers because you also know that will be the final nail in the coffin for Warwick.
