What happened to our priorities? We face shutting down our senior center for lack of funds, yet Mr. Bob Ware and his chamber of commerce gang ask for $75,000 of taxpayers' money to advertise the Rim country. What did our city council do? They asked, "Who do we make out the check to?"
The senior center could operate for a year-and-a-half on that $75,000. Instead, one-half of that money went to a PR firm in Phoenix to design a dynamite ad campaign to convince the people in the Valley to visit Woods Canyon Lake in Payson?
Let's keep our tax money in Payson, rather than sending it to Phoenix for a deceptive ad campaign. Spending it on our senior citizens is a good investment because we should all remember, "There but for the grace of God go I."
