Was weekend getaway on taxpayers' dime?
I recently overheard an El Centro City Councilman bragging about “city business” and a weekend Las Vegas “getaway.” Is it city protocol to send its council members to Las Vegas? Not only did this council member take extended family on the trip, but it appears not much business was done … simply eating out and having a great time. The working class citizens of El Centro should not be spending for this extravagance. — Resident, El Centro
