Getting Grief

Quite an interesting Park, Rec & Culture board meting. I was yelled at by a Board member who was a former Council Member with over 20 years service on past Councils. He was angry that I am trying to save money on the Community Center and that if I had never raised the issue no one would know we are losing so much money on it. Its my job to try to fix problems and no one should ever hide government expenses from the public. This is how the city gets into trouble. He was also angry that we are replacing the Lions who had operated and done so much at the Community Center. This move saves us money. I had offered the Lions a chance to buy the Community Center for a $1 from the City and they did not take the offer because they realize that the cost are to heavy a burden to manage. We can not live in the past nor can we make decisions with taxpayer money based on emotion or whether or not we like someone. People may donate their own money anyway they want but taxpayer funds are for necessary city services and not to donate to charitable causes. Am I missing something here ... btw this lead to yet another threat to run me out of office because I am trying to save the public money and challenging the status quo
