Your Tax Dollars At Work

Albany Common Council member Michael Brown always has something to say and he loves to get the word out. He just sent out another mailing using taxpayers money. In the nice letter he called Council President Desfosses and President Pro Tempore Conti "heartless political bosses" and "an elite gang of politicians that looks down on our community". So much for Holiday Cheer from Mr. Brown. And this letter cost the city $663.

Brown couldn't be reached for comment.

I have no problem with Mr. Brown speaking his mind. I have a problem with paying for his pointless mailings. How exactly are these mailings helping the people Mr. Brown represents?
