Democrat Money Burn: Mayor Mark Mallory

Starting today, I will occasionally use this space to highlight the wasteful spending of the Democrats. I'm afraid I will have plenty to write about.

Today's culprit: Mayor Mark Mallory.

In a story entitled "Deficit? Mayor wants more staff," the Cincinnati Enquirer reported that Mayor Mark Mallory is asking for an additional staff person in his already bloated Mayor's office. His quote: "There is an absolute need for additional staff in my office."

While Americans everywhere are losing their jobs, America tumbles toward recession and the city tries to cut $14.5 million from its budget, the Mayor wants to add a staffer to an already bloated city bureaucracy.

The Democrat Mayor needs to do with less. Almost every American is. The beleaguered taxpayers of Cincinnati have had enough.
