Hanft Job

The walking calamity known as the Troy Council Democrats got caught violating the City Charter by trying to illegally lower the salaries of several city employees. Now, Council Democrats are trying to figure a way to stick Troy taxpayers with the bill for Richard Hanft, the lawyer brought on to defend their improper actions.

Mayor Tutunjian has already volunteered to pay any legal costs from the Democratic attack on the City Charter. Why do Council Democrats feel compelled to stick taxpayers with the bill for a fight they started?

What will be interesting is watching Democrats override a Tutunjian veto to pay a lawyer hired to defend their inability to follow the law and the City Charter.
