City Officials Should Be Paraded through the Streets and Pelted with Eggs

So, if I’m reading Nate Rau’s story right, not only are we spending hundreds of thousands of dollars on a project (the convention center) that hasn’t even been given a green-light from the City Council yet, we were primed to spend $1,362,500 over what we’d initially budgeted to spend on the project which has yet to even be approved and would have, had the media not caught wind.

Over a million dollars, in this economy, on a project the city council has yet to approve.

People, when I think of that in terms of how many computers for how many classrooms, how many more police officers on our streets, how many more firefighters, new park equipment…

For a million dollars, could we have had Mondays at the downtown library back?
