LETTER TO THE EDITOR: March 22-23

—  In response to the recent article about Mayor Mike Moore’s travel claims, I would like to thank Connie Sellers and other members of the Jeffersonville City Council for continuing to keep a watchful eye out for the taxpayers.

Financially, times are tough all over and many families are struggling to make ends meet — even families who may be doing better than others are tightening their belts when it comes to travel. It’s simply a luxury that many of us just can’t afford these days.

At a recent city council meeting Mayor Moore attempted to have taxpayers foot the bill for a trip to Florida for an Archeology Conference to “explore the fascinating roadside resources of Florida’s Gulf coast.” This seems to be questionable in terms of its direct and tangible benefit to the business of the city of Jeffersonville.

Come on, mayor. Have you no shame?
