The Mayor is quick to shut down the Buttonwoods Senior Community Center but, at the same time, rewards his cronies with substantial raises.
Getting back to Holly Weber who was working for the Pilgrim Senior Center as their "Community Program Coordinator" making an annual salary of $52,000. The Mayor moved her on over to the NEWLY CREATED POSITION at Parks & Rec, increasing her salary by over 30% to an annual salary of $66,950.
Then , the Mayor rewards his friend and Director of Senior Services at the Pilgrim Senior Center, Meg Underwood, with over a 10% raise, increasing her annual salary by $8,048 to $76,491.
In addition to this, the city knew the Buttonwoods Community Senior Center would be closing, and still spent $125K to upgrade the fire alarms there, while the school buildings were overlooked. Someone made out well to upgrade fire alarms for an empty building.
The Mayor's motto is: "let the seniors be damned, I'm going to take care of my friends no matter what the cost."
