[QUOTE who="how much more?"]<quoted text>
The oak fest committee is a volunteer group, not employees. Are all volunteer groups going to be included? Where do you draw the line??? Hank spends taxpayer money like its his own.[/QUOTE]

I find it interesting when someone says the Oak Fest Committee is a volunteer group! That just makes me laugh, who audits their handling of all the money through the Fest?Let's cancel Oak Fest for one year and see how all the "volunteers" complain! Why are they invited and not the all of the town folks that pay for this crazy government of spendthrifts! Just set up your tent in the middle of Central Park and have the whole community invited! Why not a Mayor's Congratulations Holiday Parade, since we are the town of parades! This mayor and his adm. ass. need to be sent the same way as other mayors in this community, back to their other jobs!

City Christmas Party great, as another house down my block goes into foreclosure, you would think they have better things to do with the city's money!
I would volunteer too

And is it really volunteer? They may not be paid in cash, but I have witnessed both kids and adults that were "volunteering" being handed piles of tickets.

Your question regarding why Oak Fest people are being invited is rhetorical right?

Seriously Gaelic Park donates the City Christmas party every year, and have been doing so as long as it had been there. I beleive I was there about 15-years ago for a commission I was on. All city bills are public record. You can look at each month and see if there is a paid invoice to Gaelic Park. This is another example of lies on this blog when the facts can easily be checked out.
And what does gaelic get in return? I know they get special treatment with wild animal removal since I was there on a saturday night at a wedding and the city removed a raccon that wandered onto the property..... Try that at home and you know what your told.... "we dont remove wild animals"
Me too
