from the washington post:
"taxpayer money is paying the expenses of the four council members who are his traveling companions -- Marion Barry (D-Ward 8), Jack Evans (D-Ward 2), Vincent B. Orange Sr. (D-Ward 5) and Carol Schwartz (R-At Large). The cost for each council member was $7,500. Evans and Schwartz said they paid out of funds budgeted for the council."
well, isn't THAT special?...they can locate the $30,000.00 for a vacation to south africa but they can't locate the $30,000.00 to fix the lights in 2 parks in our under serviced neighborhood.
another traveller at taxpayer expense: DPW agency head william howland. now there must of be tons of good will about the lousey parking enforcement in our neighborhood to warrant a trip to south africa. dont you love it when politicans say: why are you being so negative?
