You Gotta Be Kidding!

According to Style Weekly’s Chris Dovi, the litigation between the City Council and Mayor Wilder over whether the mayor may disregard ordinances enacted by council and may fire council employees has cost us taxpayers $883,445.53 in legal fees, so far.

Take a few seconds to let that sink in. . . . . .

Our elected leaders, who are currently arguing over whether the city government can afford to grant us a one or two cent decrease in real estate rates, are perfectly willing to squander our money on this ridiculous litigation. Are these the people we have elected to run our fair city? Have they no concern for our money?

Undoubtedly, they will be coming to us in a few months asking us to reelect them, or elect them to a higher office, arguing that they have done a wonderful job husbanding our funds. Give me a break!
