As an outsider

As an outsider let me make a couple of observations.
This is a small town with a smaller budget than Wilmington's.
The Mayor spent 20% of the Town's TOTAL building fund on carpet. The dollar figure is small but the building fund should be preserved for more utilitarian needs.
The Mayors attitude of "here's the credit card and out the door I went" strikes me as a laizee faire attitude considering she wiped out 20% of the towns building fund.
A purchase representing this large a portion of funds would and SHOULD have been discussed at an open forum. If indeed there was visible mold which posed a health hazard to the Mayor and all employees routinely in her office then yes the monies should be appropriated.
If Mayor Saffo had done this in Wilmington with Sterling Cheatham's approval we'd be asking for their resignations - something Mayor White should consider.
