    So,nothings changed. Snyder does it, Duggan does it. All spin. I never thought my dog would have more integrity then a public servent. But, here we are folks,my dog wins.

    is that even true that the city does not pay for his travel and a per diem?

    Doesnt the city for example send school board, city council, council aids, department leaders, and all sorts of people all over the country on supposed learning expos, to resorts and vacation hot spots like hawaii.

    I have noticed they never go to rapid city iowa, or bismark north dakota, or other mid west rust belt cities in the winter. So weird it has to be to vacation spots for a convention or speech that could be live streamed from the speakers office in baltimore or philly, to hundreds of interested parties around the country.

    Its almost like the city sends hundreds of people ever year on 20k vacations, where they fake “learn stuff”, to save us money.

    Learn it on the internet you azzholes.

        Do ya think $ 275.000 will cover it?

        • javierjuanmanuel

          I would rather he submit receipts, this just looks bad, it looks like pay for play. Cut him a check for a couple grand and your calls are answered, your stuff is hot tracked.

          If its legit, the city pays it, its that simple.
