No to officials living high on our dime

-A +A
It was very refreshing to read the “Our View” column of the Sunday paper (Jan. 31) that said more and more people are getting fed up with our elected officials spending hard-earned taxpayer dollars on food, drink and fancy trips. Three cheers to Kevin Hanley who is speaking out against such trips and to Mike Holmes who is paying his own way. If Bridget Powers and the rest of them want to participate in something like the Cap to Cap trip, let them pay their own way, too. Enough already. The message should be very clear by now: We the taxpayers have had it with these extravagances. No more living high on the hog at our expense! Lindsay Rand, Auburn
