Nasser misleading

I recently had the opportunity to meet and talk with Joseph Nasser, who is running for Brackenridge mayor. He is using misleading information in his campaign.

Mr. Nasser questions the need for a fifth full-time officer and quotes a figure for police overtime. Had he done his research, he would've found that ATI and its contractor reimbursed the borough for police coverage. The taxpayers didn't pay for this.

Nasser wants to hire two part-time officers and furlough a full-time officer. Our officers have a union contract that states we can't use part-time officers if we lay off a full-time officer.

His ideas look good on paper, but are unlikely to generate the savings he claims.

Don't be fooled by a campaign based on “saving money.” His plan of action is misleading and could put Brackenridge in a predicament that will end up costing the residents time, money and peace of mind.
