In the Jan. 15 paper, I noticed the mayor of Hinesville’s asking the taxpayers to foot another trip for him, now to Africa. I didn’t realize the city of Hinesville was a travel agency for the mayor. Maybe if the mayor wants to go to Africa, maybe he should pay for the trip out of his own money.
Editor’s note: The mayor had said from the start that he is willing to pay for his trip out-of-pocket.

I can’t believe the mayor and some council members have the gall in wanting another paid vacation to Kenya. Who does he think he is, the president?

What’s happening in Washington, the unemployment, there’s all these things. And then, the $25 billion government shutdown, and you’re thinking about a poly cart.
