    Hey guys. Great show. And l3wis. Thanks for posing my question. But the answer was pretty much EXACTLY what I expected. “I didn’t know that.” Well, why didn’t he? It is part of the job of our newspaper journalists to be a watchdog. Mr. Ellis mentioned he knows when a story is going to be “hot”. What could be hotter than a new mayor preaching about tightening the belt with city spending, then increasing his “performance bonus” up to over 56K a year? Especially after cutting every other departments “performance” awards. There are many “hot” topics that can, and should be brought up concerning this budget proposal. I just wish someone at the Argus would dig into these things. Seems like EVERYTHING gets its ten minutes of fame, then its onto something else. Unless of course it’s about the Events Center they want to cram down our throats, or the merits of having the red light camera. Then all bets are off.

    I’m hoping a lot that stuff will be brought up during the budget hearings. I have a feeling we will be hearing about it.
