While there may have been some grumbling about Rick Pollitt jetting off for the far east last week in retrospect it could have saved the taxpayers of Wicomico County a lot of money. It seems as if R P has a big appetite when it comes to spending tax dollars for food.
Hardly a meeting can be held that there's not a lunch or dinner being bought and paid for with taxpayers money. Even a simple stop at Wawa for coffee falls prey to the county credit card.
The restaurants and Pub owners in Salisbury and Annapolis will be scratching their heads wondering what happened to the first week of Septembers receipts. R P s economic stimulation policies mirror those of councilwomen Sample - Hughes who chairs the Tri County Council Sample - Hughes defended the Tri County Councils pub hopping a few months ago as something that helps the local economy, this is what we do and we will continue to do this she stated. Some members of the Wicomico County Council just increased R P s office budget by $10,000 to help with the food bill. Maybe Rick can take those employees from PRMC to lunch before they join the unemployment line.
