Upon opening my city newsletter that accompanies the water bill, I found a short article by Rodger Worthen, our well-paid city manager, shamelessly supporting the incumbents in the local city elections. I didn't realize it was legal, moral or ethical to use city funds in such a manner. Probably it's not. His article relates to the city officials' reported foresight in making water pipe upgrades. It takes the entire front page.
Low and behold, after reading this praise of our administration, I turned the page to see all of our city election information, with each incumbent clearly marked.
It was pure genius! No one will ever suspect the sneaky little affair that just took place, at the taxpayers' expense, between our city manager and our mayor and city councilmen who are up for re-election. Shame on them.
