Another great Letter to the Editor in the Fort Worth Star Telegram. Maybe the elected officials should start paying attention.
What budget priorities?
Mayor Mike Moncrief and some city staff spent $31,000 on a Super Bowl vacation. Are you kidding me? Yet the city of Fort Worth is furloughing staff and laying off others, city land is not being kept clean and Code Compliance is gutted among other harsh measures adopted by Moncrief and the City Council to balance the budget.
This is despicable. Why does Fort Worth need to spend more money than the host city of Arlington? For the Star-Telegram to write about this junket without noting that we are in a budget crisis is irresponsible.
This mayor and council always seem to find money when they need it, but what about the taxpayers? Enough with pork-barrel spending!
