Both sides are in a delicate contract situation. No one predicted that so many decision makers would abruptly retire. (i.e. Bruce Keiser). Now Warwick is facing a June 30th deadline and I am reflecting back on acting Mayor Joe Solomons' decision to "not get involved" in the budget preparation when Avedisian invited him to do so in an offer of unity. That decision seems even more damaging today then it did when he announced it. Communication is the most important part of ANY contract negotiation. We are lacking it here and at the Firefighters contract discussions as well. "Mayor Solomon did not return an email of inquiries regarding contacts as of press time." is not in the best interest of the 80,000 taxpayers that are paying the tab. As Mayor, I would never deny a request to sit and talk or email-respond to The Beacon. Acting Mayor Solomon can't afford to either.

Happy Summer everyone.
