Speakout: Oct. 17, 2012

Retirements

Congrats to the mayor for taking a stand against the rise in state retirements going up soon. My retirement is based on the stock market also; only difference is, when the market tanks, no one makes it up for me. Taxpayers can not foot all these bills much longer.

Oversight

Peru residents need to start paying attention to the goings on at the government level. NYS Comptroller report reveals numerous oversights on town officials shoulders.

Allergies

If you have a special friend that is allergic to smoke and cats, then be a friend and don’t expose that person to stuff that makes them very sick. Don’t be so selfish. Asthma and allergies are not fun to deal with.

Clothing

I’m writing in reference to appropriate and inappropriate attire in schools. I think if you are considering uniforms because the girls can’t cover themselves, then some of the female teachers should do the same.

Noisy

I am tired of living above noisy neighbors. Ten people in a three-bedroom house is too many. It’s a shame that landlords value DSS money over hard-working people’s.

Job

I hate my fellow shoppers. I have never seen such angry, self-entitled people. It is not the associate’s job to do your shopping for you.

Murder

People who live on death row are obviously there for a reason. I believe that if you murder someone on purpose, why should taxpayers have to give them three free meals a day, a free bed and free health care.

Sports

Town sports is not a babysitter, so to you parents who sign your kids up and they have no clue what they’re doing or don’t even want to be there, please save the coaches the hassle.
