Macomb Township Scandal Is Worst Parks And Rec Episode Ever
Scandal inside the Macomb Township Parks and Recreation Department! Hard ball machine politicians forcing township employees to sign petitions for a crony! A whistle blower’s smoking gun letter! FOIA requests denied!
This is gonnna be good.
Or maybe not.
The Macomb Daily obtained the letter and got to the bottom of this controversy that the threatened to tear this unincorporated township apart. What did the whistle blower claim? Tacky political shenanigans.
Macomb Daily: [Parks & Rece Dept. head Sal] DiCaro told several recreation department employees to sign Bucci’s petitions. [Jordan] Gross said in the interview that employees complied because DiCaro is “an intimidating guy and he’s your boss.” Gross’ letter also indicated that he, on more than one occasion, saw DiCaro tending to the details of his “fantasy football” team on a township computer, rather than working.
The problem is the rumors swirling around Macomb, based on the letter from the aforementioned Gross, had nothing to do with Sal DiCaro. People had been saying Township Supervisor candidate Janet Dunn was the shady politician pressuring the Parks & Rec staff, which she wasn’t the Macomb Daily concluded.
Unless that’s just what the Macomb Daily wants us to think because they secretly take their marching orders from ex-County Commissioner Ed Bruley, as Macomb Daily commenter “Homer” claims.
Of course, it all makes sense now.
That is to say, Macomb Township politics are kind of shady and controlled by fantasy football-loving cronies (but not Janet Dunn), commenter “Homer” is maybe a little nutters, and Macomb County is as awesome as ever.
There are lots of places where petty folks squabble over penny-ante political offices, but nowhere is it more entertaining than Macomb County. -- JTW
