Political Patronage and Publicly Funded Land Deals

Political Patronage: The practice or custom observed by a political official of filling government positions with qualified employees of his or her own choosing. For the legal definition go to “The Free Dictionary

Here is a textbook example of Political Patronage in Cedar Rapids, Iowa just last week:

Todd appealed to the politicians as a former politician understands the decisions that our current council are being criticized for. Todd has no respect for free speech or our Constitution as he appeals to the council as one politician to another. He has that “you understand how these CAVE (Citizen Against Virtually Everything) people operate” mentality. Dale Todd expressed the view that free speech is a nuisance that people like Hatch and Todd have to put up with.


“Todd is a habitual liar. He said “We did not know about it”. If he and Hatch do know what is going on, they are damn poor project managers. City Council delivers projects and free land to proven poor managers! Many of us in this community have witnessed this Council condone criminal trespass, illegal use of City land, and denial of neighbors property rights.”

There is nothing 'radical' about wanting to save your historical neighborhood! There is nothing 'negative' for wanting an 'outside investigation' done a public service that has had a lot of embarrassing news, especially when they don't do their jobs! There is nothing 'odd' about wanting politicians to uphold the Constitution they swear to uphold when they are sworn into office! Follow @sibzianna View all posts by Ajai Dittmar
