I drove down A Street and Front Street and even in my Lincoln it was as bad as driving over a washboard. When I think of the money being spent frivolously on the Japan trip and not spending it on important things here at home, where it is so badly needed, I think it is very inconsiderate of our elected officials.

I’ve lived in Crescent City for 64 years and I have paid enough taxes to support a third world country.

I’ve very much in favor of recalling those people, Supervisor Lori Cowan and Councilwoman Heidi Kime because they keep approving spending our money in ways I don’t agree. Neither one has ever come by my house.

I hope there are better people out there that will step up to the plate and run for city council and board of supervisors this November. It’s been very disappointing.
