Murphy rebuffs oversight board's threats Tom Murphy yesterday sent the city's fiscal oversight board a missive with a message about the firefighters new contract: Back off or we will beat you in court.
In a strongly worded letter to the board, Murphy defended the cost cuts in the contract and vowed the city will win any court battles with the oversight board, which criticized the plan and voted to sue the city.
In the most simple terms, Murphy does not play well with others. On another level, he is happy to fight it out in court.
We don't need to go to court like he has done. And, we need to work much harder at working it out.
I'm willing to deal well with others that are not willing to deal well with me.
I'm not a push over that is full of agreement, just to make nice. I can stand fast in my resolve in matters where I justifications. However, throughout, I stay with an open mind.
I can be proven wrong. I can listen to those that are in disagreement. And, I don't give up.
