It's backwards...everything is backwards.
The commission spent about 5 minutes approving thousands and thousands of dollars for various projects. I'm sure most of these were much needed projects to run the city, some of them were not. Just seems like 35 minutes could have been discussing the minutiae of alllocating taxpayer dollars as opposed to telling good people how great they are...just sayin....
The commission approved a 66% increase in pay for the Board of Education commissioners.
They were making 15,000/year and now they will be getting 25,000 because of...Science...or something that surely makes sense to someone...somewhere...but I don't know them and I don't know where they are.
Government is broken. Commissioner Reaves spoke about the wanton spending of government like sailors ...but it won't change people...not until regular Joe's like YOU take an interest in what's going on in their communities and then try to do something about it. (Hint: regular Joe's like YOU are not showing up at these meetings & that hasn't changed since I started writing these recaps)
We just had a presidential election. Most people will pat themselves on the back for voting and then not pay attention to what's going on until 2020.
All the damage done to this country is in between elections and not just at the federal level but at the state and local level. It ALL matters.
The President is one man. You are one man. You want to help change things then just do it. Show up, engage, change it. It really is that simple.
November 30th is the next meeting. Hope to see you there!
