|Council President Ryan Vaughn|
Last month Vaughn preached about former GOP Councilor Lincoln Plowman's immorality for taking $5,000 to influence a zoning issue. Yet now we find that a month earlier Vaughn had secretly signed off on a contract giving Brooks $225,000 of our tax dollars for a redistricting project not even allowed by law. I woud ask whose offense is worse, Plowman's $5,000 transgression or Vaughn's that cost us $225,000?
As a Republican, I am disgusted at members of my party treating taxpayer money as if it exists for no other purpose to enrich themselves and their friends. Unfortunately that will be the legacy of Mayor Greg Ballard and Council President Ryan Vaughn.
