Old tricks again?

Friday, March 10, 2006

Dear Editor,

I agree with Dick Trail that our City Council is up to its old tricks again.

I couldn't believe they would hire back an individual who left us for a job elsewhere, obviously they didn't want him either, then come crawling back for his old job back. And vote to give him a raise along with that!

Dick was right also in saying that Bingham hurt residential building in McCook by hassling builders, another example was the duplex condos built by Bill Davis near the old Elks lodge. Plans were to build five duplex units, however due to Bingham this may never happen as he did everything in his power to discourage the building by breaking promises, which in turn resulted in a lot of extra expense for the contractor.
