'Hail to the Chief' games in Kent

Published:

A tale of two cities (and two men): Both men, employed by the taxpayers, are paid to keep those cities on an even keel and address the needs, safety and welfare of the citizens. For some peculiar reason, one man was given two generous raises in 2013. One of those two public servants will be paid $342.48 per day in 2014; the other, $191.78 per day.

One City Council will say the one earns more because he works harder. That is a lie. Does anyone see something wrong with this picture?

The voters in one city were led to believe the extra money after an income tax increase last fall would be used to pay for a new police station and jail. Seems that much of that cash will be spent by City Council to play "Hail to the Chief" games in Kent.

  • Paul,

    Your viewpoints are always spot on. Maybe you should consider running for City Council. Then your beliefs may influence change to Kent's born again glass is always full entitlement spree.
