One of the more rousing speeches at the June 21 City Council meeting came from Matt Muller, the president of the Program, Administrative and Support Employees Association (PASEA).
That meeting was filled with city workers who lined up to speak in defense of their jobs and their salaries as the council contemplated a motion to seek $2.5 million in personnel savings by this fall. (They approved it the following week).
Muller, who drew thunderous applause from those who attended the meeting, has drawn criticism in other circles, namely the Vanguard. The local blog has made its support of the personnel savings clear, saying that “we can achieve the $2.5 million in cuts with as little disruption to the rank and file employees as possible.”
Muller said the cuts will drive "already low employe morale even lower."
