Letters: Discretionary funds in bond?
Funds are bad idea by Harry Trujillo  
Sunday, May 21, 2006
Re: "Council members weighing bond funds for pet projects  ? Dallas: Some want discretionary money in record bond package," Tuesday Metro.
   Discretionary funds in the 2006 bond program is not what a vast majority of Dallas' taxpayers will support.
   We must know what we are funding when we vote on this bond package. Put it this way: Why not ask Dallas residents to vote for or against the use of discretionary funds, along with the vote for the 2006 bond program, and see what the city's shareholders decide?
   I am amazed this City Council would even entertain use of discretionary funds, considering the ongoing FBI investigation into possible corruption at City Hall and the fact that some city tax money is used to pay back taxes to the Internal Revenue Service because one member of the City Council has problems with the IRS.

  Ward politics is the Devil's key to the soul of the city council.  It is how some council members got themselves in trouble in the past.  It is the bait that will get others in trouble in the future. 4/6/8
