RSVP, city money can be better spent

So RSVP doesn’t have the $27,000 to fund a fireworks show. Please tell me how a fireworks show promotes the health, safety and well-being of the community and supports the RSVP mission.

This reminds me of the effort to remodel the streets of downtown Carson for $11 million. Just because something might be nice to have doesn’t mean you have to buy it! (Unless you are Sheldon Adelson.)

It appears our elected municipal officials, with the exception of Jim Shirk, and adjunct organizations are a bit too loose with taxpayer and contributor dollars.
