Flush with cash

Dear Editor:With so many retail stores and automobile dealerships closing in our city, it's maddening to know $315,000 of our tax money is going to the pretentious position of deputy city manager of public safety. We're not a city the size of Los Angeles or Anaheim. We have earthquakes once every 10 years. We have no targets any terrorist would realistically want to attack. So what, again, is the point? It's nice to know our city is so flush with cash we have no problem throwing it by the wayside. - Richard Nance, Downey ********** Published: January 2, 2009 - Volume 7 - Issue 37
