STEAK & LOBSTER?
From the LNP article linked to in this morning’s post.
LNP moved this story off their homepage early this morning because, of course, Mayor Sorace got them millions of dollars for their Marriott Hotel so they can’t be too critical of her! Let’s see if there’s a follow-up by LNP!
Every cent of the $4,064.77 should be paid back. So the steak and lobster jumped out at Patrick Hopkins? But what LNP doesn’t tell us is what did he do about it? Did he demand the employees pay it back? If not, why not?
And what is later explained to be the retirement party for Randy Patterson? But Patterson didn’t fully retire. In fact, in December of 2019, former Mayor Art Morris complained to council that the city was keeping Patterson on as a consultant. See below and click here for the original. So how much has been billed for Randy Patterson? Stay tuned...
THE HEAT IS ON?
“While every taxpayer dollar is important, these types of expenses are not what has caused the City’s financial challenges and eliminating these expenses completely will have no material impact on the City’s fiscal condition,” she [Mayor Danene Sorace] said.
From the LNP article, “City expenses show thousands in overcharged meals, parties and catered meetings; Mayor says not the source of budget woes,” (click here).
Wow! That is unbelievable arrogance from Mayor Sorace!
