Letter to the editor: League of Municipalities convention waste taxpayers money


email-envelopeDear Editor:

I walked through the halls of town hall last week and it was a ghost town. The taxpayers of Parsippany sent somewhere around 20 people to Atlantic City.

Between hotels, food and time out of the office, this adventure must have cost taxpayers$26,000. Two days in Atlantic City breaks down to approximately $400.00 on hotels another $100.00 on food and transportation plus salaries that average $400.00 a day.

The taxpayers are owed a breakdown of costs and a clear justification of who went and why. As for the people that went, I’d like to understand what they learned that was so valuable.

I’ve heard that this is nothing but parties, drinking and gambling.

This is a disgrace.
