It's NOT their money, it's yours!
It's as if they learned nothing from what the Marcum LLP semi-audit revealed -lackluster to non-existent internal controls and appropriate follow-up.
And from the perspective of a pro-reform person like myself who is and has been paying close attention, that's made worse when the elected officials refuse to step-up and do their job correctly.
Seriously, given what has gone on in this city for so many years, some of the matters that the Broward Inspector General's Office is currently investigating, what sort of elected officials consciously votes on giving a loan of $50,000 to someone without all the reasonable questions being answered in full, the very same ones that weren't asked for or demanded in many of those previous deals under scrutiny now, which have cost HB taxpayers not only money but aggravation and with precious little tangible results to show for it?
I would submit that it is elected officials who are likely to be kicked out of City Hall in November.
Trust me, what you will be reading here and contemplating the full meaning of, will only highlight for you all over again the full extent of the anti-taxpayer culture present at HB City Hall now, and the curious but consistent myopia of some city Commissioners here who claim to be doing their job effectively, but who seem never to have heard of the word "oversight."
That would explain a lot, wouldn't it?
