Elections over, city and school district on right track
Now that the election is long since passed, and all the acrimony is over, spring has sprung, Sherwood is a great place to be! While all don't agree with everything the city and school district may be doing, that is the way it should be. We all don't have to agree, reasonable people can differ, if we could just do it respectfully. Over-all, I believe the city is on the right track. Things are getting done, and the city and the "Y" seem to be working through the issues. At the end of the day, Sherwood is a great place to live, work and play and some of that greatness is due to our elected officials. So thank you Sherwood School Board, Mayor and City Council.
Was city money used for Rose Festival?
Did the city of Sherwood really spend $2,000 for Mayor Clark's Rose Parade costume? If so, I would like to know exactly how this happened. The citizens of Sherwood voted overwhelmingly "no" when asked to pay the mayor a $500 per month stipend for serving as mayor.
Yet, Mayor Krisanna Clark chose to spend one-third of that annual amount on a costume to wear for a few short hours in a parade. Surely, I am not the only person who is appalled by this expenditure. Did the other members of city council approve of this purchase before it was made?
I think we all deserve to know and it starts with the fiscal transparency Mayor Clark is always touting. I would like to see a list of all of the expenses and reimbursements (clothing, meals, mileage, travel, etc.) paid out by the city on behalf of each city council member for the last year, including the mayor. We (need) to know how our tax dollars are being spent. We deserve the truth.
