People often wonder why the city of Sudbury has never really grow very much over the last 25 years, well it is because of people like Guido Mazza. The old boys club generation.
He is paid close to $140,000.00 a year to decide Sudbury’s future. He controls the building department which issue permits to build in Sudbury. He controls the By-law department which controls the way the city and all its citizens can function and live in this city. He also controls the licencing department in the city of sudbury which decides which businesses can operate in our city.
Basically if you want to do anything in the city of Sudbury you need his permission. He is pretty powerful…To Much power for one man to have!
This is a big problem for the City of Sudbury! Why you ask?
Because of his out-dated philosophy, this man believes the way the city of Sudbury can succeed is by bullying and blackmailing the people of Sudbury as well as anyone who want to establish themselves here in Sudbury. He believes in striking first. Taking all that he can from someone before he will grant them permission to do something in our city. Examples of these conditions or Rezoning, re-greening, paying to up-grade infrastructure, removing basic service provided by our city and making them pay for out of there own pockets, donations to public project and much more. He asks for so much upfront that he scares off anyone who might want to do business in Sudbury. This leaves the existing citizens to dig deeper every year to pay the growing city budget.
Business is about Growth and investment a concept Guido Mazza cares very little for. You must make Sudbury inviting to businesses, show them you can work with them and in turn these businesses will want to do business with Sudbury and grow with it.
Guido Mazza uses his position to benefit himself and care nothing about Sudbury…It’s time to get rid of this man and bring in modern, educated, real time thinkers and planner.
Changing Council was a step in the right direction, We got rid of a lot of the old boys already and the new council as done some great work but we are not done yet. All reports that go to council are prepared by city staff, people like Guido Mazza. And he does not stop at bullying the citizens of Sudbury but council as well. All reports that are prepared for council are tailored to get the outcome city staff want. This is a big problem since councilors are people from the community working at this part time and may or may not have the skills to catch the deception put forth.
The new Mayor was wise to get rid of or Sudbury’s CAO: Doug Nadorozny a long time employee of Sudbury who was here way to long and a good old boy, as well responsible for several city blunders. I do hope he was more names on his list.
Guido Mazza has already been found to have acted inappropriately by government bodies, and a few of these incidents can be found on-line. But the scary part would be how many people did not fight back and simply walked away from the conflict. How many people has he wronged? How many people has he bullied? How many opportunities has he costed us Sudburians?
There are multiple situation where city staff have done there job and made good honest decisions just to have them overturned by the “DICTATOR” GUIDO MAZZA. He was been responsible for killing many social initiatives. He is not a man who acts impartial, It’s his way or the highway. The sad part again, is that we the tax payers flip the bill for all his legal. Guido Mazza is not afraid of the consequence of his actions because he has the tax payers money to pay for lawyers to defend his decision and that is a lot more then the people coming after him.
One day it will be to late to save Sudbury. Act now! Let council know Guido Mazza and the rest of the old boys club are a problem and that you want them gone. And if you have had bad dealings with this man let the new council know. They may be prepared to fix this problem.
Thanks for reading this. This of course is one man’s opinion. Sometimes a persone must take a stand against bullies and maybe more will come forward.
