Kent spending money foolishly

Published: June 11, 2017 4:00 AM

Last fall, City Council of Kent made a financial mistake the like of which our city has never seen and hopefully we citizens never see again.

I am referring to the pay raise for the city manager.

Unlike the common cold, this huge blunder will not just go away soon. In fact, thousands of local taxpayers will be paying for this foolish move by council for many years to come.

The reason for perpetrating this move is somewhat of a mystery -- however, the old expression: "Brown Nose," comes to mind.

Was this action legal? Sadly, yes. Reckless? Yes, again. Was this action immoral? Yes, you bet it was!
