Letter: City apparel plan is appalling
August 26, 2013, 05:00 AM Letter

The Daily Journal received a copy of this letter sent to the San Carlos City Council

Dear Councilmembers,  

I read the Daily Journal newspaper this morning and couldn’t believe what I was reading (Clothes call: San Carlos considering team apparel in the Aug. 23 edition). This is the worst idea I have ever heard of. Your asking me to pay to outfit the employees of this city? You say it would help morale. When cities are cutting back why should you give out free clothing, when others are losing their jobs?

What’s next, free lunches? Paid vacation trips? Why not pay for their Thanksgiving dinner? Or throw them a New Year’s party?  

Better yet, take the money and reduce the sewer charge that is outrageous. Why a studio pays the same as a four bedroom house is unreal. Let’s use the “clothing money” for schools or homeless people.  

While we’re at it lets change the saying “City of Good Living” to “City of High Taxes.”
