WASTEFUL BOONDOGGLE

By / Letters to the Editor / Wednesday, 21 January 2015 05:00

Mayor Council,
I request the Mayor or his designee provide the names of all the Council members that will be attending the Water Resources Congress Meeting (BOONDOGGLE) on March10 in Washington D.C. that causes the change in our regularly scheduled Council meeting for March 10th.
Boondoggle:(1) Work or activity that is wasteful or pointless but gives the appearance of having value.
(2)Waste time or money on unnecessary or questionable projects.
What value can possibly be derived of 3 members of this Council spending taxpayer money such as a $10.85 Subway sandwich from Subway restaurant and a $18.70 steak sandwich from Elephant and Castle restaurant with a $3.60 tip billed for a total of $22.30 to the Town by a member of Council in Washington D.C. with no receipt at last years meeting on 2/25/13.   I can give you the total cost of this boondoggle or you can substantiate it yourselves in public records under Councils travel expenses. The cost gets even worst when 6 people (4 from Carolina Beach and 2 from our legislature ate1 meal at a cost of $494.57+a $80.00 tip in Raleigh at Town expense at a previous Town Hall Day.(Boondoggle).
D.A. Lewis,
Carolina Beach, NC
