City raising some taxing questions

November 15, 2013

Dear Sir,

As reported in today's The Royal Gazette, ‘City sues Arlene Brock'. I have a few questions; who pays the City lawyers' fees? The City taxpayer? And the Supreme Courts hearing on charges of contempt last month and the ruling of guilty as charged. Who paid the City lawyers' fees then? AND these are the people who voted to give themselves a wage — when they knew the job was without pay when they applied for it. Remember, no one forced them to take a non-paying job. Who paid for the table at the PLP dinner?

So, all this money, NOT being spent on the City, when our streets are dirty and the infrastructure is showing wear; attention is taken from the running of our fair City — and the money needed for the City, is spent by a bunch of people who clearly think they are above the laws of Bermuda. (For example, being found guilty of the contempt charges.)

So, let's try and understand this; The City taxpayer is paying a lot of money out in order to allow the City Fathers to behave badly. And they are all right with that?
