Four Goodyear city council members are off to Washington again to attend National League of Cities meetings. League of Cities; Campbell, Lauritano, Osborne, Stipp.
Last year they went to get their feet wet, this time they are going back on the taxpayer’s dime to serve on committees. More busy work with your tax dollars for the same people who have nearly spent your city into oblivion, now they want to do even more. If you will recall, I predicted all of this when they went last year and spent $9,000 of your money. DC Junket.
Just Like Barack
These are big government progressive liberals bent on spending your money just like Barack Obama and his crew. Don’t believe me? Just connect the dots. I’ll use Wally Campbell as my example since Wally is running for office in two months.
GY Council Person Wally “the dog ate my homework” Campbell ( Dog Ate My Homework ) is off to serve on a Washington DC League of Cities Committee.
The new president of the League of Cities is Marie Lopez Rogers, mayor of Avondale, AZ and good pal of Wally and her GY council co-horts who went to support Marie’s election to president at last year’s DC event.
And who is Marie’s best friend these days? Here is Marie with Barack at a White House meeting on the recent fiscal cliff. Do you think she was arguing for spending cuts?
Need more evidence? The League of AZ Cities is just a big lobbying organization.
Do they lobby for you? Heck no, they lobby for their members, elected officials of cities and towns.
What do they lobby for? They lobby to help keep their members elected. Just like their recent opposition to AZ HB2826 which forces local AZ elections from all manner of weird dates (which keeps voter turnout low and AZLCT members in office) to even years in November. (this will start in 2014 for Goodyear).
The AZ League of Cities (along with GEOrgia Lord) even lobbied Gov Jan Brewer not to sign HB2826 while they had their own poll showing that AZ voters strongly supported the measure. GEOrgia Opposes HB2826.
Do As I Say
Don’t think all these “do as I say” progressives are all connected with their special projects to tell you what to do and how to spend your money? Here is Lopez Rogers with Michelle when they met together to discuss healthy eating. Healthy eating Marie?
Be Sure to Vote
So vote in March, Goodyear. And be sure you vote for Wally Campbell for Goodyear City Council if you want a Barack Obama surrogate working for you.
