I attended the Board of Elections meeting last night and came away wondering why our taxes are being squandered in such an obvious way. If you are concerned about wasteful spending, I suggest that you ask the Board of Elections these questions:
* Why are they making unnecessary changes in the voting sites, requiring first-class mailing to inform the public at over $3,000?
* Why are they refusing to set up a transfer station, thus increasing the number of provisional ballots which will require the employment of many additional poll workers?
* Why are they avoiding a site with a newly maintained parking lot and automobile access, with plans to use a facility that will require repairs at great cost?
It was obvious that money was no object to these people, but they NEVER explained why they are creating these new costs. I think the voters need to be informed!
