Letter: Margate resident questions Mayor’s spending

Attention: open in a new window. PrintE-mail

Written by Opinion Monday, July 28, 2014 01:51 pm

To the editor:

Margate Mayor Michael Becker has an uncanny knack for squandering money – other people's money. His most recent waste of taxpayers' money was the $10,000 for two opinions not worth the paper they were printed on. They read like two poll parrots regurgitating legal boilerplate. Nowhere in the opinions will you find a scintilla of creative strategy to counteract and overturn the status quo. A lawyer worth his salt strives to set precedents.
