Are you kidding me? The jokers on the City Council and mayor's office are so unwilling to budge from their childish views that they are willing to spend $20,000 of taxpayer money to fill a vacancy that will be less than one year? The council members want Larry Brewster because he would be beneficial in working through budget issues, and they are willing to spend $20,000 to do that. Am I the only person who sees the lunacy in that?
I live in the Heights so this affects me directly. Right now we have one excellent councilman. He works for the Heights and Billings, has not lost his common sense, and keeps his constituents informed of what is going on. I would rather go 13 months with one really good councilman than have taxpayers have to pay $20,000 for a second one.
Please stop acting like children (no offense to children), put away your petty differences and solve this situation without having to waste more taxpayer money.
