Your dues to the NAACP are paid by the taxpayers since it's our tax dollars that pay your salary. But that would be splitting hairs, wouldn't it?
As the City Manager, you should go through the budget BEFORE it's ever presented to City Council and look for these items that are a waste of taxpayer dollars.
"I think there may be room to cut, but the fact of the matter is we typically go through this exercise each year, looking at how we can reduce spending, not just in dues and subscriptions." Cheatham said. "We reduced our budget in the past three years by over 15 percent."
>Big Whoop-Di-Do Sterling! So you've reduced your budget, but raised our taxes. I guess I should be thankful, but I'm not. If you looked a little harder and made your pencil a tad sharper, I'm sure you can find a helluva lot more to cut. And why in the hell should we pay for your subscription to the Harvard Business Review? Apparently it hasn't benefited us taxpayers in terms of how you run the City. Am I bitter? You bet your a** I am...and I vote!
