On the December 9th City Council Meeting, once again proves that our elected officials love to waist hard working tax payers money on useless purchases.
That evening City Council Members approved the unnecessary purchase of a $44,000 pickup truck for the Parks Department.
Question: Why in the world would anyone want to spend $44,000 on an unnecessary expenditure, such as a pickup truck during frightful economic times that we are experiencing today?
Answer: It’s easy to spend when it’s NOT THEIR MONEY!!!!
Mayor Bramson, along with all the Council members once again, did not hesitate to spend money that isn’t theirs.
If this is the kind of government the people elected and allow them to run it in this manner, then the people that elected these “idiots” deserve what they get. Unfortunately, everyone else must suffer as well.
Our elected and appointed officials are elected to watch out for its tax paying citizens. But once again, we are talking about New Rochelle. Common sense, during terrible economic times, is to cut spending, not spend more. You don’t need a degree in economics to realize this.
I would love it if the federal government or a private citizen would audit the City, the School District and all of its elected and appointed officials. Oh my, I can see the finger pointing already!!!
And why does the Parks Department need a new $44,000 pickup truck anyway?
It’s not like they maintain all the parks in New Rochelle equally. Just take a ride to Sycamore Park. Walk around inside and see the wonderful work that the parks department does to maintain it, NOT!!!!
Here’s an idea Mr. Anthony Tardibuono, Parks Supervisor, Do your job and take care of ALL the parks, not just the ones in the North End!!!!
