Travel Money

Courier reporter, Danielle Hipps, wrote what appeared to be a well-researched story regarding the Liberty County Board of Education members that appeared in the Courier, May 31, 2013. Now I ain't a knockin Ms. Hipps on this story. It outlined in detail to the penny just how much our BOE members had spent in travel dollars. My question is: Who is next in this travel expense accounting reportage?

I think if you are going to hold one of the tax-funded entities to the fire, whose 'salaries' are only five to seven hundred dollars a month, then all the other Boards and Authorities that receive tax dollars undergo the same process. What is good for the goose is good for the gander on this one.

I think it could possibly reveal an astonishing amount of tax dollars being spent. And not only that, by reporting these amounts it would be the fair thing to do. It usually takes more eggs than one to make an omelet. I encourage the Courier to finish making it.

"Now, we want the rest of the story" a good and fair request.

Thank you Thinker. That's what I think also.

Think IRS. ;)

But seriously, athere is a lot a waste that could be trimmed from certain budgets.

Yes up2....I think that there just is more to the story and that the Courier should level the playing field by not just cherry picking one Board or Authority to put under the microscope but rather but them all under it.

Not sure but I think I remember Ms Hipps pointing out that the amount of money spent on travel ranked second highest in the entire state.

Whatever difference that might have made.

It would be nice to see more stories about the cost of all of the departments which spend public money.
