City Councillor Mammoliti says 'unions are running the city'
City Councillor Giorgio Mammoliti says Toronto's public-sector unions are "running the city."
He says he is 'frustrated' because management with the city "can't manage anymore."
Mammoliti made the comments while vowing to take photos of city employees he feels are slacking on the job.
This story began last week, when the councillor released a picture of a community centre employee with his head down on a desk at the Carmine Stefano Community Centre, where he has his constituency office.
Mammoliti accused the worker of napping on the job but did not reveal his name.
The councillor contends that the city employee he snapped a photo of is just the tip of the iceberg, and has released a slew of emails that outline numous complaints about staff and the community centre and the poor state of the facility.
"I have received, over the last couple of days, very serious allegations that may be existing in community centre across this city," Mammoliti says.
He would not elaborate on those 'serious allegations,' but says that they have been forward to managers with city department that oversees the Centre.
Mammoliti also slammed city managers, saying they need to do more to provide better service to Toronto residents.
He believes city employees are not being properly managed and public services are suffering as a result.
