"Cowardice asks the question...is it safe? Expediency asks the question...is it politic? Vanity asks the question...is it popular? But conscience asks the question...is it right? And there comes a time when one must take a position that is neither safe, nor politic, nor popular but one must take it because it is right." ~Dr. Martin Luther King

They are always asking people or organization with there hands out constantly,"What can we do for you?" How about asking the people who actually work and will be paying for all these lovely gifts what we would like? When I see 3 people and 2 trucks painting 1 fire hydrant, I'm really not too sympathetic with gov't employee issues.

Thanks for the comment. 

Now here's an idea. 

Your Mayor  and Councillors are all on e-mail. 

As you say ,they are always asking what you think about things. 

Why don't you write one e-mail ,copy it to each, and tell them what you think of their munificent  generosity with your tax dollars. 

I have a question on your point about two trucks and 3 people painting one fire hydrant; why do you assume that's not a management matter? 

If you recognize how ridiculous it is, why don't you bring it to the attention of your elected representative and ask them for the explanation. 

While you're at it ,you might inquire how the half- million dollar software program they  bought without consulting the IT Department ,is working out. 

It wasn't compatible when they bought it.

 How did that get fixed? 

And ....have a Very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.
