It’s not their money to spend

RE: City staff’s Trump trip broke the rules (Feb. 6)

The Hamilton Spectator - - OPINION -

Thank you, Mr. Dreschel for bring­ing this to light. As Hamilton cit­i­zens strug­gle with high prop­erty tax rates and more, it makes my jaw drop as I read about this bla­tant abuse of se­nior­ity. There was prob­a­bly $1 mil­lion worth of salary rid­ing in that City ve­hi­cle. I’ve seen, in my life­time, em­ploy­ees who have over­stayed their wel­come tak­ing high salaries and as­sum­ing priv­i­leges by de­fault. Per­haps, they feel that their good deeds from the past will some­how shield them from any wrong­do­ing in the fu­ture.

I don’t care how won­der­ful ev­ery­one thinks Ms Priel and the oth­ers are. It is not their money to spend. Lu­cio Palazzo, Hamilton
