Miller stands by his man
"Toronto Mayor David Miller is standing by TTC chair Adam Giambrone."So, let me see if I understand this correctly...
"The test I have for whether somebody should be in a leadership role is if they're succeeding," Miller said Thursday. "There's never been a time like this for public transit in Toronto and when there have been problems, chair Giambrone has accepted responsibility and proposed solutions."
First he says, "The test I have for whether somebody should be in a leadership role is if they're succeeding". Then he goes on to say, "There's never been a time like this for public transit in Toronto" (referring to the current customer service firestorm the TTC is trying to weather).
So he's succeeding at the TTC, but never before has there been so many problems???
Excuse me.. Is this the same Giambrone who basically said that he has experience running the TTC, but when challenged about the problems, he responded by saying he doesn't run the TTC? That's accepting responsibility??? I guess in Mayor Miller's terms, it is...
He must not remember that nice little nugget that Giambrone said when being questioned about the TTC's failures:
"You've got to be careful ... Take a look at the structure of the commission and see what the chair of the TTC does," he cautions. "The chair of the TTC is chair of the board of commissioners ... The commission is ultimately responsible for the policy; it hires the chief general manager and the chief general manager and staff are responsible for operations."Oh, so he's not responsible for the Operations when there's problems... He's only responsible when there's successes...
That's "accepting responsibility" in Miller's eyes... What a freakin' douche!
In this current nightmare at the TTC, the one question on everyone's mind is, where is Adam Giambrone??? And that's from the Public and from the TTC Union...
Like I said before, Giambrone is only there for the Glory, and never there for the blame. And David Miller can perform all the tests he wants, but they will never result in Giambrone being a good leader..
Anyway, given that David Miller is the worst Mayor that Toronto has ever seen, I'm not surprised that he continues to "stand by his man" Giambrone..
I mean, moronic minds -that are full of crap- think alike, don't they?
